Windows Media Player

I am not sure is this problem is good to be put here

I visit a website which shows the video.  After I click the link, a window popup using Windows Media Player.  But I can't save the video, why?  How can I save the video??  I am using Win2000

 I tried to find the temporary file under temporary internet files but only the link.
not the actual video file.
Thanks

It's because it's streaming the video to you, you're not downloading it then playing it from your hard drive.

No nothing happens. It times out and I get this error.

"There was no timely response from the server
Error ID = 0xC00D0013, Remedy ID = 0x00000000
The file you want to play is on a server that did not respond in a timely manner. Windows Media Player attempted to make contact with the server that holds the file you wanted to play. For a number of reasons, including Internet traffic, a lost modem connection to your service provider, that server did not respond during the time that Windows Media Player waits for a response. So Windows Media Player gave up waiting for the server to respond and stopped trying to play that file. Try to play the file at another time."

>>>so where is the video stored??

It does not really matter. If the site operators have it set up just for streaming then they have locked it deep inside their server so it theoretically can't be downloaded.

No the error I posted is from the link. All that link does is downlaod a text file that has the info I posted and when double clicking the link no video ever appears.

I do get the movie to play in Windows Media Player.

This is streaming video as stated above. It is done that way for a reason usually. Streaming video cannot be downloaded and passed on as normal movie files (avi, mpg, etc..) can. This is done for many reasons at the owner's discretion. Unfortunately, you just cannot download a streaming media file. You can only view it.
