This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

you tried that on the link? –  overboming Mar 29 '10 at 17:06
Sorry, didn't realize that was not a typical .mov file. Comment removed. –  fretje Mar 29 '10 at 17:09
I guess the answers are in "Youtube and Google video downloaders ?" at superuser.com/questions/6675/… (and many other questions that refer to, for example DownloadHelper: superuser.com/search?q=DownloadHelper) –  Arjan Mar 29 '10 at 17:15
Or this maybe? superuser.com/questions/76359/… –  fretje Mar 29 '10 at 17:16
Any solution doesn't involve a download plugin on a mac? –  overboming Mar 29 '10 at 17:33

The above .mov file is like a play list with links to various versions of the video that are intended for different types of device.

You can simply open the file in in a text editor (such as Notepad) and copy & paste the file names to get directly to the desired file.

Here are the filenames from the .mov play list:

  • apple-ipad-guidedtour-playall-us-20100329_848x480.mov
  • apple-ipad-guidedtour-playall-us-20100329_e320x180.3gp
  • apple-ipad-guidedtour-playall-us-20100329_i320x180.m4v

Simply append them to the original URL (e.g. http://movies.apple.com/media/us/ipad/2010/tours/apple-ipad-guidedtour-playall-us-20100329_848x480.mov)
