Unix Geek way:
1. Launch Terminal
2. cd /
3. cd private
4. cd tmp
5. ls
    look for a numbered directory. Mine is 501
6. cd into that numbered directory
7. cd Temp*
    this puts you into the Temporary Items folder
8. ls
    look for files named QTPluginTemp with numbers after
9. copy to the desktop. Wait for it to appear.
10. rename from the desktop with a .mov extension. Confirm.
11. Launch in QuickTime

NonUnixGeek way:
1. Command-F from finder
2. Add criteria: Visibility. Set to All
3. Search for File Name contains QTPluginTemp
4. Select the file
5. At the bottom part with the folders, double-click
    Temporary Items to open the folder
6. drag a copy to the desktop.
7. rename with a .mov extension. Confirm that you want to add
    the extension.
8. Launch in QuickTime
