Backing Up Quicktime Movies

Port, directory, file, and arguments can all be left out; if they are, a default is assumed (for port: 80. For directory: / (root). For file: whatever the server considers to be the directory index. For arguments: no arguments.)
It's valid in HTML to specify resource locations relatively, e.g. "art/index1.html". It is relative to the directory the referencing document is in. I don't remember if the leading slash means relative to root or not, I don't think it does. In any case, if you see an embed "movies/foo.mov" in say http://blah.example/tuts/index.html, the link is relative to http://blah.example/tuts/, and refers to http://blah.example/.../movies/foo.mov .

How do I go about grabbing the files to download from there?
Read what I said above. If you can't figure it out from that, you need to do a little reading on HTML. Hint: you need to hand-craft the movie URL from the referring page's URL and the embed tag.

Alright, I have a website that opens new windows to play quicktime tutorials. But, the problem is, most of it is streamed (I think). I would like to have a copy on my computer so I can view it when not connected to the net. Part of the link shows up in the source code but not the whole thing. I get something like "/program/lesson/number/movie.mov". I know my instructor said there was a way to do it but I would have to upgrade to quicktime pro. Can anyone help me out with this?! I need to learn some things, and quick.
Most of the time, you can download a movie using firefox by going to Tools - Page Info - Media and scrolling through the list until you get to the embed object, then clicking save as.

When trying to use either Firefox or IE on my WinXP machine, I can't view the page source. But, when I use Slim Browser or Opera, I can see it. Also, in Firefox, I don't have the toolbar that has file | edit | view | bookmarks | Tools. And, I don't know how to get it to pop up. Is there possibly an extension that would help me do this?

For IE, you shouldn't be using IE. But you knew that already.

Fire up Ethereal, watch the video you're trying to get, stop ethereal and check the output for the GET request. Once you know where the file is located, use Mplayer (command line) like this: mplayer http://example.com/example.mov -dumpstream -dumpfile YourSavedFileNameHere.mov
You might also be able to grab it from your temporary internet files folder from IE.
Hell, maybe you could tell firefox to save it to file instead of playing it, by going into Tools - Options - Downloads - View & Edit Actions - Select .mov files - Change Action - Click Save them on my computer - ok. If all you get is a pointer file, open that in notepad and get your url, and pipe that through mplayer.
VLC could probably also do it if you know the URL.

Ok well google is a nice thing, but just incase you didn't google it:
VLC Media Player HomePage
Right, I ment the URL of the video. Thanks though
Mplayer can handle streaming via HTTP/FTP, RTP/RTSP, MMS/MMST, MPST, and SDP, so if it is being streamed, it shouldn't be a problem.
So if it's not http, you just replace http with the proocol it's using - here's an example for rm:
mplayer rtsp://example.com/example.rm -dumpstream -dumpfile YourFileNameHere.rm
