Saving QT web movies - Mac Networking

I'm on a very slow dialup (17 Kbd...Ah, life in the country) and need to view a number of QT instructional movies on a web site. They take an age to download. Is there in any way I can save them to the hard drive for viewing at my convenience? I'm using Safari but have IE, as well. Thanks -- John...

    I'm on a very slow dialup (17 Kbd...Ah, life in the country) and need to
    view a number of QT instructional movies on a web site. They take an
    age to download. Is there in any way I can save them to the hard drive
    for viewing at my convenience? I'm using Safari but have IE, as well.
    Thanks

    right click (or ctrl-click) on the link and select save as opposed to just
    opening it.

    Depending on how the movies are linked from the webpage or how they are
    embedded, there are a couple of options:

    1. if the link points straight to the movie - an URL similar to e.g.
    <http://www.domian.com/movies/movie01.mov> - you can right-click the link
    and choose "Save link to disk..."

    2. if the link points to a page instead with the movie embedded you could
    wait until it has finished downloading and click the down-arrow in the
    right corner of the movie's controller. You should get a pop-down menu
    with the options to sqave as source or QT movie - both are fine.

    Note: this requires QT Pro.

    3. if you don't have QT Pro you can fish the movie from the browser's
    cache. E.g. IE creates a folder called "Temporary Files" which is located
    in System Folder/Preferences/Explorer on OS 9 - It's in a similar location
    under OSX, can't check that right now. In there you can find the movie
    that is currently being displayed *until you close the browser's window*
    that shows the movie so you need to pick them out one-by-one and move them
    to another folder.

    4. for unattended donwloading of multiple itmes consider using a tool
    like Web Devil. It can be set to only grab .mov files and can sweep entire
    sites. <http://www.chaoticsoftware.com/ProductPages/WebDevil.html>
