Movie Butler stores movies and video streams on your macs hard drive.
Very often you start watching a movie online and run out of time before the movie has finished. Movie Butler let’s you save that stream on your Macs hard drive so that you can finish watching it later.
Or you can directly save a movie or a clip you just stumbled upon to watch it when you are not in a rush.
How the Movie Butler works:
When you start the stream, you probably won’t notice that it is constantly downloading the stream anyway to save it in a temporary folder which is deleted afterwards. For safety reasons this temporary storage can’t be accessed just like that. If that would be the case, your computer would be at risk, with doors wide open for malicious code to be saved on your hard drive, ready to go nuts.
That’s why even Movie Butler needs more than the push of a button to save a stream. In fact, during the process you will be asked to enter your password twice. Safety comes first. We prefer to have you rather enter the password than store it to re-use it.
The temporary folder that is created for the stream is buried deep down in your system. For the stream itself a very complicated and weird looking name is generated. Movie Butler is taking care of this and allows you to give the stream a name that you can remember.
A complete movie is a huge amount of data that needs to be transfered, depending on the length of the movie it takes some time.
If you open the online player where you normally watch the movie, you have to push the start button as if you would start watching the movie. This is necessary to start the download. The play button is the trigger, so to say. You can pause the player afterwards, most players will continue downloading anyway. Give it the time it needs, and once it finished downloading you may start the Movie Butler to save the stream.
