will clog up the server very quickly.
Right-click on the disk icon and click Save Target as...
Navigate to the folder where you want to save, then click Save. Note: you probably want to
rename the file, as the names aren‟t descriptive of the video clips.
Add to Play list – you can create a play list (or several) to “bookmark” the videos you want
to find easily.
This is what your screen will look like when you add a clip to your play list:
