couple of quick points to add (on topic and off)
i should invoke the traditional radio talk show "long time listener, first time caller" intro.
wrt saving qt streams:
it makes a difference which version of qt, pro/no,
2.5 (free) could save, 3.0 ($ upgrade before save). there are times when going back
a version enabled functions 'improved' in newer revs. <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />
(this may be moot if MWNY streams are QT5/6 only)
but... as noted prior in this thread, stream performance (and HD defrag/perf too... min 7200rpm for good vidcap) will limit usable
capture quality such that the day or two wait until apple archives a tweaked d/l may not be worth it.
it's not like you'll be the only contestant in line for the fat pipe that day... :cool:
dropout during the jawdropping intros might cause corruption and stress on top of anticipatory anxieties, already in progress
- many other factors in your config, let alone web traffic may degrade things further... if you're hoping to read URLs of Steve's screen, the stream probably won't hold the res of the optimized and recoded d/l
that said... os X (and some other Unix) video playback engines make use of a hardware abstraction layer that CAN be stripped off and recorded by "tapping" that feed prior to screen display and dumping a 'copy' of said info out to device (vhs tape, file, etc)
[i think this is the basis of Snapz Pro's claim to capture video and stills from DVD and QT... some copyright issues here methinks.]

[[Snapz Pro X can even capture images and movies that are playing on your DVD Player if you have an
nVidia graphics card!]]
your qt prefs have a tickbox for "save movies in disk cache" and as others have noted, a sherlock search (perhaps by size >x and date) will help
but the dynamic cache isn't an obvious .mov or .qt* bonus qt trick to impress friends *
though it probably won't work for streams,
qt is the only player i'm aware of that will
PLAY MOVIES BACKWARDS
! <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" /> (yoda makes more sense) partway through a movie press Apple+leftarrow
browsers usually back up a page, but QT reverses
(complete with oddly parsed audio).
satanic messages not discovered yet, but i haven't watched the ballmer dance recently to check
wrt 9/11 video and coverage (for ZO and NoahJ):
part of the 5 TERABYTES
<img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" /> in the "WayBack Machine" <a href="http://www.archive.org
incl: comprehensive collections of 9/11 coverage from media outlets worldwide (nhk, bbc, azteca)
as well as media criticism about the coverage
see also the specific september 11 response pages
@ <a href="http://september11.archive.org/
then, if you've had your dose of macabre,
poke over to their 1254 online movies, including some very politically incorrect stuff pre-1950
(sexist tips for women, anti-drug scare films, atomic 'duck and cover' "advice", tv ads, WWI/WWII, and even SF 1905 pre-quake+fire.
literally hours of videos to get lost in...
hope this helps
