a barren land between the worlds they left behind
To begin the progressive download in Windows Media 9 click here. Do NOT choose the option to play the media in your browser (if that option is given). The progressive download will begin in the Windows Media Player and after about 5 to 10 minutes (on a standard DSL connection) the clip will start to play; press pause at this point and allow the progressive download to continue.
This can be done in the background as you work on other things.
After about 15 more minutes (or when the faint green download track is about 2/3s to 3/4s across the player) you may press play and the film should play through without stopping and waiting to buffer… or you can simply wait until the clip has finished downloading entirely (the faint green download track will reach the other end of the player and then disappear when it is fully downloaded - this can take from 15 to 40 minutes depending on your connection) and then under the File menu select "Save Media As…" and place the file on your computer desktop to watch at your convenience.
