    Hey, if someone here puts up a movie link in .wmv format and it appears streaming (i.e. I didn't download it and then watch it; the WMV player appeared right away and the movie played as it downloaded) , how do I save such a file?

    if you are talking about saving streaming videos, unless someone has a better answer, look at the page source and find the video file.

    if you know any kind of html coding, create a webpage that has a link to that video file. open the page then option+click it and it will download.
