Thanks for all your help.
I have discovered that it is loading the Quicktime movie but 'oh...so slowly' that I had concluded it had aborted. Once it is loaded I can save it as a web-archive. I will give your work around a try. The few that I have downloaded are transforming my use of Accordance. I have had the programme and used it almost daily for several years but the grammatical construct options are opening up a whole world of linguistic treasures.
I found I didn't even have to wait for the movie to download...
- I clicked on the hyperlink for the movie I wanted
- As soon as the window opened (while still loading the movie), I clicked File>Save Page As
- In the dialogue box, I left the file name as is and changed to save to desktop, then clicked Save
- Immediately, I closed the initial window that was trying to load the movie, and the download began to my desktop
- While I waited for this one to download, I repeated the above steps with 2-3 more movies, eventually having 3-4 downloading at once
- Once they finish, there was a folder on the desktop for each movie with a QT file in it of the particular movie
- I then made a "Training DVD" folder in my Accordance folder and organized all the movies in subfolders in the the same order that they are on the website so that they are always there for review
It still takes a long time for the movies to download, but you can be doing something else at the same time, though the computer slows down a bit. Once 3-4 are done, you can get 3-4 more downloading, etc.
This really worked well for me, see if it helps you?
