i was at www.u2.com and i wanted to watch some video clips (particularly the one from the halftime show) but i'm not sure how to download them. when i simply try to play them it's a lost cause because of all the buffering. can somebody help me out and tell me what to do? thank you.

i had the same problem a while ago, found the best thing was to download the clip.
do a 'save target as' on this:
http://www.u2.com/mediaplayer/excl_superbowl_high.wmv

(they dont show the links like that on the site, but if you do a 'view source' of the little pop up window before it loads completely you can see the location of the file:

tedious, but worth it)

THANK YOU!!! it took forever for it so finish but once it did i was actually able to watch it the whole way through...several times (i'm actaully watching it for the 3rd time right now!) i'm gonna try what you said about the view source with the tonight show clip so you might get another question from me. =)
