I was was looking at the Apple Trailers site today. If you bring up one of the trailers you get a page like

On that page is a button that also has a dropdown that allow you to select Watch  or Download and the resolution.  If you look at the properties of the each of the resolutions, you get the address of the movie.

If we were able to get that far, we could download the movie by spoofing the user string

Is it possible to extract out the address of the movie from the web pages?

Don't know if this has been told yet - i tried searching and found nothing - but to download from Apple you must change the user agent to "QuickTime/7.6.2".

Anyway, looking at the source of the page you're talking about, there's a hidden div "dropdown-list" with an unordered list "dropdown-overlay" containing the links to watch the trailers online and the links to download them...
