Coaster Videos?

Thursday, May 30, 2002 4:38 PM
I have a ton of coaster vids on my hard drive, but some of them, like on Rollercoasterfreaks.com and Discovery.com, I can't save on to my hard drive. How would I go about doing this?

try right-clicking on the link and hitting save as. That should do the trick

Well, if its a steaming video, you won't be able to save it to your hard drive. Some of the videos that are in quicktime format can be saved, but its hard to do. To save them try this:

Watch the video on the net. After its over go to Tools - Internet Options - then in the general tab click on settings. Then click on the View Files button. You'll then see a huge list of files. Find the file that your looking for and drag it to the folder that you want.

This is asuming that you're using IE 5.x or 6.x. Hope this answers your question.

This is a common misconception. The very fact that you viewed the video means it's on your PC somewhere. Anything you've seen or heard on the internet with your computer has to be on your computer somewhere or you wouldn't have seen or heard it.

Or let's take a totally different approach. The movie has to be stored somewhere with public access or you wouldn't be able to view it. You just need to find out where the video is stored.

There are tons of ways to get videos that have no direct links for downloading.

However, this is a coaster forum and not a computer forum so I'll spare the lengthy details and just remind you that perhaps the videos are being streamed because the host wishes to share his or her videos, not give them away...
