    Capturing QuickTime clips (XPP)

    I come across various sites that have media viewed via Quicktime (.movs). I have tried to save them, but they are prevented from being saved via the 'File>Save/Save' as routine and they are not stored in 'Temporary Internet Files'. In fact, they are stored in the 'Temp' files as a .tmp. I have tried to save, move, and copy that file, but it will not allow it while it is in use in the QuickTime player. If you close the QuickTime player or Exit the file, the 'Temp' file is automatically deleted upon exit.

    Is there a way in which to capture these QuickTime clips???

    You can try telling Quicktime to save the movies in the cache, as shown in the attached image. It may or may not work, depending on how the .mov file is deleivered to the viewer.

    Eric ~

    I'd like to try your suggestion, but am not able to locate the window you attached. Would you please indicate how I may arrive there? Thanx!

    Sure -

    1. <LI>I opened up the QuickTime Player application (QT installation placed a shortcut in my start menu that points to 'C:Program FilesQuicktimeQuickTimePlayer.exe')
      <LI>I selected the menu items Edit -> Preferences -> Quicktime Preferences
      <LI>The Quicktime Preferences dialog box I attached above appears
      <LI>Select the 'Broswer Plugin' option of the dropdown listbox and you should see the option to save the movie in the browser's cache

    Thank you, Eric. I found I had to register with Apple before I could get the preferences window. I will now give it a go and let you know.

    Well, I set it up per your directions, but it still stores it as a .tmp file in the Local Settings Temp File. It will say cannot be copied as the file is in use and to close apps using it, but when I close Quicktime or exit the file, it is deleted automatically from the Temp file.

    Is there a way to retrieve the deleted file? It surely is still present on the HD. Or another way to capture it before or after it is deleted?

    After playing with it a little more, I have noticed the same behavior you described: a .tmp file is created, and deleted as soon as the movie in the browser is stored. As of yet, I don't know of a way around that.
