Hi David,

here is a way to download a movie once and store it on the iPhone for
repeated showing from the local file, also between restarts of the app. You
would have to know the URL beforehand.
on mouseUp
   put "LanoKurz-iPhone-cell.3gp" into tMovie
   put specialfolderpath("cache") & "/" into tMypath
   put tMovie after tMyPath
   if there is a file tMyPath then
      play video tMyPath
      answer "will download the file"
      put "binfile:" before tMyPath
      put URL
into URL tMyPath
   end if
end mouseUp

Kind regards
