Does anyone know how to download the Quicktime videos from Penguin? I can do the Windows Media ones easily, but when I try to Save Target As on the Quicktimes, all I get is an html page. The movie itself is a plug-in. Is there some setting I can use to not view the Quicktimes as plug-ins, but as .MOV files that I can save to disk?

Running Windows, Internet Explorer.

Thanks in advance.

Yessiree, I can help you here. This is how I save my Quicktime ID's:

first go into your C: drive, then into the "Windows" folder, then look for "Temporary internet files" folder and open it. when this window is open, sort by file types. It will take a minute for this folder to open. Go to your Quicktime files, select them and drag them to a folder on your desktop. There you have it, you're ID's to view without logging on! :D

The only kicker is you need to rename the files for easier identification.

If you need any more help, feel free to PM me.

If you are just talking about playing the vids, you have to double, sometimes triple click the quicktime player.

Hope this helps.

if you used netscape, it'd be a lot easlier!

Thanks, Brian! That was the nudge I needed. I found the files under C:\Documents and Settings\robert\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files. I keep forgetting where that's buried in the newer versions of Windows (XP at home, 2000 Professional at work). Once I moved them and renamed them, they came right up! I prefer Quicktime to Windows Media Player.

I like putting both the demo and explanation videos in one folder, and going back and forth between them. The two presentations are often different, and comparing and contrasting them after you have the secret is very enlightening. Also, it's easy to burn them to a CDROM for viewing on a computer that's not connected to the internet. My laptop, for instance. Now I can practice without tying up the main computer at home.

LOL, that's exactly the way I organize my downloads. I also have mine on CD's. I am glad that helped you, BTW, that works on most videos you watch online that are downloaded. :wink:
