Save QuickTime movie trailer files to computer without Pro

Is it true that a few months ago, QuickTime allows users to save the movie trailers without using the Pro version?

"You need to do two things to download trailers.

Modify the url. Example:

http://movies.apple.com/movies/fox/avatar/avatar-fte1_720p.mov

becomes:

http://movies.apple.com/movies/fox/avatar/avatar-fte1_h720p.mov

Notice the added h.
Change the user agent string.

I use wget to download trailers (if you've got OS X or Linux, you've already got it, the link there is for Windows). Use a user agent string from Quicktime, so you type:

wget -U QuickTime/7.6.2 http://movies.apple.com/movies/fox/avatar/avatar-fte1_h720p.mov"
