Greetings

A friend of mine is interested in streaming product information videos from his site.  It is extremely important that these video files are available to download.  I was told streaming a QuickTime file is one of the best methods, while setting the options to turn of caching and the kiosk.  Is there still a way around this option, can someone still technically record or download these files?

There is always a way to record streamed videos. The Quicktime option is a good one as it takes a technically sound user to save the videos. But it is still possible.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that quicktime usually stored all it's videos in the temporary internet files.

It does, but the file it creates has no extention, no affiliation and renaming it as a .mov does nothing to make it readable.  If you can convert the temp file to a playable format you should be ok I would imagine.  However, I think the file is designed to be unreadable.  Any thoughts?

Now I'm confused: You want the videos to be saveable or not?

No, I don't want the videos to be saved, but I'm curious about how would go about making the attempt if you really wanted them.
