Is there a simple, and legal, way to record and replay streaming

Resolved Question:

Is there a simple, and legal, way to record and replay streaming video on my Mac? For example, past episodes of a regular TV program that the network offers on their website or from another service that offers the same option.

Well the only guranteed legal way is though iTunes or another service that prints the terms and conditions.There are websites that will "rip" the video for you such a keepvid.com what you choose to do is at your own risk. Please remember you IP addres is usually recorded which is how they find the people that violate.

How do I do that? Is there a fee? I'm not a computer geek and would need very specific instructions if it's not very simple to do.
Expert:  DaniBigApple replied 2 years ago.
What website are you viewing these videos from?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The Fox TV website for the series "Touch." 3 past episodes are available for viewing, not downloaded.
Expert:  DaniBigApple replied 2 years ago.
Ok Im looking into the options we have at the moment
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Dani, I can only be at the computer for the next 15 minutes or so. Can we pick this up in the morning if necessary?
Expert:  DaniBigApple replied 2 years ago.
Yes thats fine it will give me time to do more research.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Good morning, Dani. Any results from your research? Bernard.
Expert:  DaniBigApple replied 2 years ago.
I have been successful on most websites , however the fox side is very difficult so far
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
How is it done on the other sites besides Fox?
Expert:  DaniBigApple replied 2 years ago.
If you use a mac there are many tools you can download to extract video. MPEG stream clip is a popular one. We used this tool often to convert video. It also has a feature to "Open URL" and download videos. And keepvid.com However as you know if you dont own the copyright to these videos you are violating the terms and conditions. Its up to you on what you would like to do, but the answer is YES it is possible
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK. I guess we'll just leave it at that. My objective was to be able to watch the episode and skip over the huge number of irritating commercials. By the way, is DaniBigApple your real name? It sounds like native american name.
Expert:  DaniBigApple replied 2 years ago.
Danielle is. I live in NYC and work on macs for Google so I thought the name was clever. If you feel I have answered your question please hit accept :D

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
