downloading .mp4 Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I'm probably being lazy but I couldn't find a way to make OmniWeb 5.6 download the .mp4 files (and sometimes the .m4v) from the sites I visit.

It's kind of a drag because it opens a Quicktime window and then I have to "Save as Source" or "Save as QuickTime Movie". Btw, anyone knows the difference between these two options?

The main question is how directly download the files instead of opening the QuickTime player inside OW.

Control-click on the link then choose "Download Link As..."
You can also option click the link to send it directly to your download folder.
Those were my first attemps!
I tried doing that but it downloaded me some html files and not the movies themselves.

Actually, I solved the problem from outside of OW.
I went to the QuickTime Preferences and said I didn't want QT to hadle my mp4 and m4v files (and avi, for that matter).

Now it all works as I want :)
