How to save flash video on a website?

I have visited a website with flash video on it. I was just wondering if there is a way to download the flash video? Thanks in advance.

I think you can try with wget option -A.swf , man wget :

(-A acclist / -R rejlist --accept=acclist / --reject=rejlist

Comma-separated list of extensions to accept/reject. For example, if you wish to download only GIFs and JPEGs, you will use -A gif,jpg,jpeg. If you wish to download everything except cumbersome MPEGs and .AU files, you will use -R mpg,mpeg,au.)


go to source, then search for "swf" string and when you find a line starting with "http" and ending with ".swf" try to download it

There are a few extensions for Firefox to help you do this - I like DownloadHelper:-

Nice and simple, no problems so far.
