quicktime 5 movie trailers

Is there a trick to being able to watch and save movie trailers you download off the internet at a later time without having to download it again? I've tried to open the trailer from the Temporary Internet Files, but I just get an error message. I have the regular Quicktime 5 that you download from them, not the pro.

RE: quicktime 5 movie trailers

You can try looking at the "source" of  the page and find
the URL to the .mov file (http://.../trailer.mov) you want.
If the URL starts with http:// or ftp:// it's easy to
download: just copy the URL into your browser and click
the "go" button holding the SHIFT key on the keyboard.
It's even easier if you use a download program like Getright
or Download Accelerator, or wget (look for "wget for windows" at google.com)
If the URL starts with rtsp:// I don't know how to do that.

Good luck
