Can't "Save As" some files in Media Player 11
I've noticed recently (and this may have been the case since a fresh install of Windows Vista) that I don't have the option (it's greyed out) to "Save As" on Windows Media Player 11 with SOME files.
For instance, when I download an MP3 with NO rights management, like the latest "audio clip" from www.homestarrunner.com ... it'll play fine, but you can't "save as", and since it's a flash file that links to it, you can't right click to save target as from the site.
Here's a direct link to one of those audio files http://www.hrwiki.org/mirror/hs_drinko.mp3
but, in the case of certain video files, like this MPEG from www.mega64.com, it WILL allow me the option to "save as" once I've stopped the video. http://www.mega64.com/tetris.mpg
What's going on? Has this ALWAYS been the case with Windows Media Player 11, and I've just not noticed it, or have I adjusted a setting that's prevented this option???
And the kicker is ... which, similar to other issues I've had in WMP 11, that I've already found a work-around - I can right-click on the file in the playlist and "open file location" then just copy and paste the MP3 elsewhere, but again ... I'd still like an answer to the question : WHY IS THE "SAVE AS" FEATURE GREYED OUT!?!?
Let me know if you can, thanks in advance!!!
