Download online videos (flash player, jw player) that do not show in plugins


Hi there!

I am trying to download videos from these 2 sites:
http://www.megatv.com/megagegonota/s...pubid=30403231
http://www.skai.gr/player/TV/?MMID=236383

I am using Firefox and various plugins (like Download Helper, FlashGot) but with no success.

In the first case, the video does not show up at all at the download plugins. I check the site source and see lines like the following:

Code:
<meta property="fb:app_id" content="270723226284897"/>
<meta property="og:url" content="http://www.megatv.com/megagegonota/summary.asp?catid=27377&pubid=30403231"/>
The idea is to try to decode -somehow- a url for the video, but it seems not possible.



In the second case, seems that the stream comes in small files (0.5-0.8 MB) that last around 1 sec and that I actually can download, but cannot play.

Code:
libavformat version 53.21.0 (external)
Mismatching header version 53.19.0
Interesting! I tried downloading many files, concatenating and copy-pasting the first files of another video to the beginning of the file, to insert some sort of a header. Still it didn't work.



These are actually hacking attempts. I need some imagination, to try to figure out my way. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Hacking actually was intended here as "finding a highly customised, not obvious way".

What I want to do, is download locally web content (newscasting) that is freely accessible to everybody.

I am not sure if the thread violates the rules of the forum. If so, then please go on and remove it, I certainly do not want it to cause trouble to anybody.

Thank you!
