Saving a WMV video from the web

Sadly my Uncle passed away Monday, and his family placed a seven minute video tribute to him on the funeral homes' web site.

Normally I do not have any problems saving anything I find on the web, but this has me stumped. When I right click there is no context box, and nothing to indicate if it could be saved.

Is there a way?


Edit:
I think I may have found a way here:

Hi Anak,

If you're comfortable sharing the video with us, please provide a link so we can help you figure out what software to use to capture/save it.

If not, can you tell us what format the video is in?

Sorry for your loss,

Walker

This is the web address of the video: TributePlayer Yes, that's my Dad's older brother George. My Dad Bless his Soul passed on back in 2005.
He's in it also at 03:29 that's Uncle George on the left, his twin Sister Aunt Betty, Sister Aunt Millie, and my Dad John.
That pix was taken at the twins 90th birthday party. Uncle George was the last of his immediate family.

This is the website of the company that created the program:
Frazer Consultants, Video Tribute Software, Video Tributes, Tribute Software, Memorial Videos, Memorial Tributes,

The tab it plays on has 00977.wmv marked on it. now, when I right click on the player page a single Silverlight box comes up.

My first post I said I may have found a way, but the program starts with an information box:

"Schedule service is not registered.
Please register service"


When I click through it; it runs, but I get a lot of "Error:503 the circuit is crowded"

I looked up how to register a service, but I'm not savy to Coding or compiling.


Thank You for your kind words WalkerA.

Using Firefox and the DownloadHelper - Media download Firefox extension add-on I nabbed it just fine. If you don't use Firefox or don't want the add-on I can send you the video by other means.

Very touching presentation, by the way. I lost an uncle about a month ago myself. Sorry about your loss.

profdlp, Thank You for your advice.

I was an exclusive user of FireFox on our XP machine that is networked to this Win7 machine, but I had not installed it here because the DW prefers IE, and I became comfortable with IE8.

But it is on here now, and with your guidance added Download helper, and in the words of the venerable profdlp:

I appreciate the offer of you wanting to send me the video, but you may save or delete it at your pleasure.

profdlp is a good man Walker. Just as you are.

I failed to mention that I burned a copy of the tribute file for my Mom, she's 85, and had gone to the services.
She never said anything, but I'm sure she'd like a copy.
