    I would like to know how to save this streaming media. I have pulled this out of the temp folder but can never get to play. I would like to save to DVDr and play when I don't have a internet connection. Here is the link. I did find a site that offered the video with there name pasted on it. I would rather learn how to save this for my own use just as it aired on TV. Here is the link:

    Saving the video to my playlist is working. I am sure it isn't the video itself. The playlist extention file (Windows Media playlist) is only 4.00 KB and the video file is 1.67 MB. If I am truly saving the video then it should be the same size as the other. It looks to me like I am saving the page or streaming information to play offline. I would like to capture the entire file. I'm not sure but I may need to convert file to be able to play. Anyways the temp file is 1.67 MB and when I save to playlist the file is much smaller 4.00 KB.

    How can I save this video even if need be converted but I would like to save the original file. Again I don't think playlist is saving the original streaming video. If I am wrong then please explain. BTW I am unable to play the larger file when I pull it out of the temp folder. Nothing will reconize video to play.

    I must be an idiot because I am saving to playlist that I know of and it works yes as well, but is it the original video? because Im telling you the size of the file is very small. please explain, because I am looking to save the original streaming file and If you are saving the original file than I am not saving it like you are. please look into it and if you are right than I am saving the wrong way. If this is the case please give me step by step. Please keep in mind that I saved to playlist and then looked at the file and the file is tiny. I think it is too tiny to be the video file in the playlist. As I stated both file sizes in the previous messages. Can I get your thoughts on that?

    I still do not think we are talking about the same thing. I am not talking the screen size. Thank you for your help, but Please reread my posts.
