Apple thinks that either they are too smart or they think that people using the computer are too stupid and that’s the reason why they don’t allow you to save the source file from the web if you are not using Quick Time Pro.
They want you to buy the PRO version when you can simply go to File -> Save page as and store the file. Else you can simply right click on the link and click on Save link as , to save the Mp3 or video file and that too without the need of Quick Time Pro.
Well, the above mentioned tricks are possible when the direct link of the source file is included on the web page, however there are situations where the direct link is not included then also it’s not difficult to get to the source file.
Let’s say that an Mp3 file is embedded in a web page and you want to download it, you just need to follow these simple steps :
1. Right click on webpage and select View Source.
2. Press F3 or go to Edit ->Find
3. Type MP3 and click on Find.
This way, you’ll get the link of the file which has been embedded in the webpage and you can use that link to download the file.
