If you want to save locally a internet movie, you open the page source and search for the FLV file location. Almost all the web players require the movie in FLV (Flash Video) format to be loaded.

Normally you will find in the page source something like “file=http://[domain]/[location]/[file].flv”. Just open another browser window and enter the address that you copied from the source code (http://[domain]/[location]/[file].flv) and save locally the FLV file.

Now we just need something to play this kind of files. Just on a short google search you will find lots of standalone players like Wimpy, available for Windows and MacOS here:
