    Strange question, I know. But I remember a time, not too long ago, where getting a 1080P trailer from a quicktime movie site required me to use my work computer with Quicktime Pro installed which would allow me a SAVE AS. Now, I went to the new Harry Potter Trailer on the official site, and I could easily right-click and save to my computer. I noticed the same for ROTF. Did they just become less stingy with trailer distribution?

    I still can't do it without updating to Pro.

    I just don't bother anymore. Personally, I don't understand why they make it so hard to download an advertisement.

    I heard of something a while back, called Quicktime Alternative. I think it was said that it allows you to save the files, and it's opensource or something to that effect.

    I stuck with trusty old Quicktime, I just hate updating it though...massive files and it takes forever. -_-

    Well if anything, three of my anticipated movies this year had freebie downloadable trailers in 1080p (Transformers, Harry Potter, and Star Trek)
