Hey all, new to the forum so hello. I want to copy a website's entire site so I can edit the html and upload it to my site. The site requires a login with user name and password. I pay a monthly fee for access to the site and I am allowed to download, use, edit, resell all of the videos on their site. They have around 550 short(5-10 seconds) MP4 vids I need to download, and I don't want to have to click on each video individually and click "show controls" and then click on the download button. Also, if there IS a way to copy their site contents and edit it, that would be great as I could skip the downloading individual videos and just make my site display the videos similarly to the way theirs does. Thanks in advance for any help.

Do they offer FTP access? If you can login with FTP then you could copy what you want (might depend on the permissions the FTP account has).

Are you also allowed to copy their site? dry.gif

Anyhow, look at the list of programs here. The obstacle is the login. Some of the programs claim to be able to do password protected sites, for example HTTrack, but don't count on it working.
