Anybody know of an app or utility that will capture movies
from your screen, kind of like a screen grab, but for motion stuff?
I've seen some little movies lately I'd like to save, but they play in their own window with, seemingly, no facilitiy for saving.
Thanx,
dixter
P.S. Does imovie not accept mpeg clips?

if you mean those 'particular' kinds of movies traditionally available over the net it depends in what format they are streamed to you. if they're in real player, there is no way i know of to save them. they stream down ot the player and play in real time. you would need i think the pro player to be able to save them. if they're in quicktime format, there is an option in your quicktime preferences that asks you if you want to save th clips. engage and they will save to your browser cache file. you can go in there after and pull them out. that seems to be the easiest way i know of. of course, why would you want to save movie clips? http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
