i`m absolutely stumped. i`m trying to download these quicktime files from a site but even with a username, password and all files checked, all i seem to get is a status: 401 unauthorized message for just one html page.

what am i doing wrong?

Can you please tell me more, which files from which page you were trying to download? I will see what could be done.

Thank you.

site: http://www.orangeusd.k12.ca.us/training/intranetlist.htm

login+pass: orange

i first tried downloading the quicktime files from the main site. then i tried downloading from each separate page. (when clicked on, a new window opens using javascript). that i`m aware of, i don`t have anything stopping it. no videos allowed to be downloaded as well, etc. everything had no restrictions -- but something obviously is set in wrong. is it because everything opens in a new window? (3) main > quicktime moving listings > the movie clip itself

thank you so much for your time

It is quite easy to load the site with all movies. Start the New Project Wizard and use the following URL as the starting address there:


Set Level to 2, Allow downloading all files linked to the starting page, "Load only from the starting URL" and download the Project. You will get all .mov files from the site.

Thank you so much Oleg! I didn`t realize, (or even know) that I had to include the orange:orange@ part but that worked perfectly. Thank you once again for the immediate help.

Well, it was just an easier way to explain. You could also place the username/password in the Passwords section of the Project Properties.
