How to Get the URL of a Streaming Movie

Streaming movies are movie files that exist purely on the Internet--they are never actually downloaded to your computer while you watch them. You watch them over your Internet connection, which saves space on your hard drive. The URL of a streaming movie is the physical web address where the file itself is being stored. Finding this URL is a painless task that can be completed in seconds using your web browser.
