    ok here is the problem and anyone who can tell me what to do gets rep points.

    ok i have classes online for school and one of them streams lectures over quicktime.. the only problem with that is i cant figure out how to save them so i can pause them(it wont let me while its streaming). I want an acuall file lecture1.mov any ideas.

    Try looking at this thread..

    Edit: If you can't figure it out, let me know.. I've had to do this a lot of different ways with various formats.

    The worse ones are dyamically generated URL's based of user sessions ID's.. ugh - getting the real location of the file is a pain.

    If these are live streams, it becomes a bit harder too...

    I used to use streambox VCR but many companies are finding ways around it now, so I use Xi's Net Transport 2 all the time. Its amazing for capturing streaming files and also for downloading multiple files at the same time. You can download all files from links on a page, and sort them into file type and everything.
    Give it a whirl, here's the link.

    One of my fave programs ever.

    I'll vouch for NetTransport..

    If you are still having problems with the dyanmic URL's, I'd try NetTransport.. it's worked well for me in the past.

    I use NetTransport to download streaming Windows Media files, but I'm not sure if it works with streaming QT files though. Look into it. :)

    NetTransport does work with qt/mov files.. I've used it before on quicktime files.
