I have IE6 & Firefox and view video clips on the net which open in media player.

Is there a way to save this clips for viewing off the net from my hard drive.

Right click and choose "save as" may do it for you.

Instead of clicking on the file name to open, can u right click and choose "save as"?

Don't open the file in Media Player first. Right click on the link itself and select "save target as".
