    Just curious - If you get safari for windows, go to said site, go to the windows menu --> Activity --> it should show you it downloading said file, if you double click on said file, it should prompt you to save it ?

    That or right click on link and save target as and change it from wvx to wmv ?

    Other option is let it download / stream the whole lot and then show all hidden files and go into your temp internet directory and sort files by either type or size and find it and copy it out of there to your desktop or the likes ?

    That or maybe HTTRACK - http://www.httrack.com/

    Easy to download, the wvx file that it downloads is basically a play list for Windows Media.

    With a bit of debian foo skills you can run

    mplayer mms://ls-video-mcc2.ces.strath.ac.uk/3/10/220-10-06.wmv?SAMI=http://video.strath.ac.uk/10/220-10-06.smi -dumpstream -dumpfile 220-10-06.wmv

    Then leave to download.
    It's up to 100meg so far, drop me a PM if you want me to send it over to you some how.

    Unfortunately none of those will work since the software needs to support streaming media protocols e.g. mms, rtsp, rtmp. For videos which are embedded into webpages, StreamTransport is probably the best program to use.

    Your file assosiations may be busted for Media Player as it works fine from here.

    Cheers for that.. I hardly ever reboot into unbuntu these days since I put windows 7 on, so will try the other method first. This is a good command to know though, so will need to try to remember it!
