    It appears it's because it's a temporary file stored on your computer. Is it a live stream?

SOURCE: I'm just wondering if it's possible to stream live

You need to find a screen capture program that captures your desktop as a camera then find a streaming utility for your website to point to that camera that was created as your desktop. It is possiable I just do not know right off hand what the program names are.

How do i download video clip onto vlc

Hi there,

It depends what you are attempting to download. If you're trying to download streaming video, you would need some pretty advanced software like Camtasia's Screen Recorder.

However, if it's an actual video clip available for Download, you can do this.

Save the video clip to your Desktop or to a location you recognize. Once it's downloaded, open the File Location and right-click on the Video. Select Open With, then select Choose Default Program. From here, select "Browse", then search for VideoLAN VLC Player. Once you select the video file, make sure that the check box below is set to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file."

Once you do this, every time you open an AVI File it will open it VLC Media Player. If you don't want this, just make sure "Always use the selected program..." is unchecked.
If this solution doesn't resolve your problem, please return to this page and submit a response. I will be happy to assist you further. :)

Unable to play video clips or avi file on media player 11

You need to play these files on VLC or in Media Player Classic. You can play almost any media file through them.
If you don't have any then you can download VLC media player from the following links:
for windows os zip file 16mb:
windows 26mb:

& for mac 19mb:

And if you want media player classic here is a link to download it: (212mb)

If these players cant play your files then might not have given enough time to download your torrent or must have downloaded corrupt file.
