I can't seem to figure this one out.

I'd like to save a video clip to the Desktop that downloads from Amazon.com
http://wm.amazon.usa.speedera.net/wm.amazon.usa/books/AMAZON_V6_crop_300k.wmv

Where is the SAVE/Save Target As button?

Thank you.

CTRL and click or right click and then "Save Linked File to Desktop."

On a Mac?

I take it you're responding to the right click part? I use multi-button mouses(?) on my Macs all the time.

Streaming video can't be "saved" it must be "captured".

I do too but my right click is like Cmd-W. I've never figured how to save wmv from the web. Have a windows buddy send you the clip as an attachment. Save it that way.

OK we're talking about the link itself. If you CNTL click you will get the Download linked file option. Although, as DC pointed out that is streaming video, you'd need something to capture it.
