    Can anyone offer any information on how to download videos from Xtube to one's hard-drive?

    There are some I would like to save before they disappear from the site.

    If you allow the movies to finish playing they will be stored in your temporary internet files area. You can copy them out of there and keep them. You will need a player to play them on however. I use Riva FLV player (google it).

    If you download a program called Super (again google it) you can convert them to a different format such as Mpeg or WMV for example.

    Best of luck.

    On a mac......go to the firefox add-ons.....they have an extension that lets you download vids from youtube,xtube, etc.....once you download the extension a small icon will appear in the bottom right hand corner of your browser....when the video has finished loading..click the icon and a window will open that will allow you to download the link...it will appear on your dektop as a file called get-video....rename it to anything.flv....go to:
    [SIZE=-1]www.wimpyplayer.com/products/wimpy_standalone_flv_player.html
    and download this flv player.......launch the player..a box will appear with what looks like a folder in it....drag and drop your newly named file and BINGO...it will start playing for you.......complicated, but theyve created sites like youtube and xtube so you can't save the vids......

    All the files are already downloaded in order for you to view them on your computer. but they get stored in the area on your hard drive reserved by the brower as a "workspace".

    an easy way to find the files is to use Internet Explorer to view the file(s). then go to the top where the drop down menu lists appear and select "Tools", "Internet Options". then select the General tab. Go to Browsing History, click Settings, then select "VIew Files". You can sort by size (the video files are usually the largest) or type.

    The file names will be an alphameric string name, so you may not be able to spot the vid you want, but you can right click and select "open" and then copy and paste the files you want to a new location. I usually just copy a bunch of them to a special folder first, then open them that way since it saves time. then i rename them something that is meaningful to me.
