Saving streaming video from real player

  Bob8 10:11 30 Jul 2003

My son is getting married in LasVegas in November and his weeding will be available live from the chapel to view using Realplayer 8.
Does anyone know how (if it's possible) to save the streaming video to the hard drive for later viewing or copying to cd/dvd.

As far as I know you can save to hd no probs. You'll need a lot of space though. You can burn with Nero or like.

BTW I hope his gardening goes ok.

If you cant save it direct,i think you can copy it out of temp internet files.

Thanks for the suggestions.
I should have checked the spelling before placing the help request (MichelleC)

I hope you've got Broadband. We logged in to watch a wedding, and all we got were random sceen shots plus the vocals in awful reception. I thought you might want to be aware on an important occasion....

Have a practice run first. You may find you need to right click on the open file and select "Save As" or "Save Picture As" to be able to get it on your hard drive.

I cant see where the" save as 'is on the file menu

You must RIGHT click on the file itself and the option (the wording may not be exactly that but you should be able to get the meaning) should come up. Don't click on "file" at the top of the page.

I tried streaming the video using realplayer8 from the "" web site but right clicking on the downloading stream did not present me with the ability to save the streaming.
Any further suggestions would be welcome.
I hope to get a friend to use his broardband connection to do the streaming since I will be in Las Vegas for the event.

You need to right click on the icon leading to the streaming sequence, not on the sequence itself.
