Subject: [Videolib] Downloading video from the Web
Does anyone have any tips on downloading video clips from the Web?
We have a student who needs to capture clips from John Kerry's Web site at
http://www.johnkerry.com . She needs to use a couple of his commercials in

received permission to use the commercials--in fact, they said that she and
anyone else was free to download and use anything that was there.

Any advice would be very much appreciated!
