Default Where Are Movies Stored For Offline Viewing From Android Market

Hi everyone, I have an Atrix and I rented my first movie from the android market today. I downloaded it to view offline. (I haven't had a chance to play the movie yet.) Have to charge up my phone. I was wondering were the file is stored. Neither the internal memory or SD card appear to have used up any space after the download. I know it downloaded, because my data counter widget indicates over 1.5 GB downloaded by the video app to view the movie. Any ideas. (I bought an extra SD card for the purpose of downloading movies so to not take up space.) Thanks

First, let me say that I really like the movie rental from the android market. It is really convenient and the download to my phone was only 30 to 40 min. No problems playing the movie. It even picks up were you left off, if you have to come back to it later. You can watch it as many times as you like within the 24 hrs period. Now, here is what I found out. The movie was stored in the internal memory, in an android movie folder and was only 355 MB in size. (I thought it was bigger then that for a 2 hrs. 5min. movie.) Apparently, when I was first trying to download the movie, I did re download it a few times thinking it didn't download. So, that's how I came up with the 1.5 GB size from my data manager widget. Also, when you are downloading for offline viewing, you will see how much memory is left after the download, before you download it. My battery went from 100% to 80% after watching 1hrs. and 41 min. with the screen at 20% brightness. So, in airplane mode, one can watch at least (2) 2 hrs. movies and still have decent battery left. (In theory)

Does anyone know of a way to change where offline movies are stored? I bought serveral movies for a long trip but the Videos app seems to only save it to internal memory. I don't have enough internal memory available and would like to save it to my 32GB SD card .
