They're not exactly hosted with Real Player. Rather you're using Real Player to download and play the videos locally, which means that there may be a copy of it on your local drive (probably somewhere on your C: drive though I don't know exactly where it would be).

You may need to contact the Web site's administrators to see if you can obtain a copy of the videos.

rtsp streams can't be directly downloaded through a Mac web browser. There are various programs that can do it, probably one of the best free ones that can do it is the Unix mplayer binary. Once installed, you can run the following at a command prompt to rip an rtsp stream:

$ mplayer -noframedrop -dumpstream [B][I]rtsp://url[/I][/B] -dumpfile [I][B]filename.rm[/B][/I]

You can download the mplayer binary here (note that it should be the Unix command line binary, not the OS X graphical version):

Open Terminal from /Applications/Utilities. Drag and drop the 'mplayer' file that you showed in your first screenshot from its location in the Finder onto the terminal window. The path of the mplayer binary should be written in the Terminal window now.

After a space, simply add the following to the line:

-noframedrop -dumpstream [B][i]rtsp://url[/i][/B] -dumpfile [B][I]filename.rm[/I][/B]

(replacing 'rtsp://url' with the url you want to rip, and filename.rm with the filename you want when it gets downloaded). Hit return to execute the command.

I tried to drag and drop the video from the finder into the terminal but nothing happened. I don't know what to do
