saving a flash video to my hard drive

Postby Caps18 on Mon Mar 31, 2008 8:40 pm

Is there a Linux program that allows me to save a streaming flash video to my hard drive?

I was using some small 'media replay catcher' or something in Windows to do it.

Or you try http://www.keepvid.com.

If none of the tools work for the site where you want to download the Video, you can install the "HTTP Live Headers"-Extension for Firefox, open the site and search for a file with a *.flv-Extension. This is the Flash-Video you want to download.

Unplug for firefox is great for that... It actually looks for any media on a given page, so the site you want doesn't have to be on its list. I've tried 'em all, and I haven't found anything better yet.

How about the Video DownloadHelper plugin? Works great for saving youtube flicks and it shold work on other sites with .flv imbeded files.

Possibly the easiest is once the video has finished streaming goto your .mozilla/profile folder and find the file with the largest size.

Thats what I do.

There's an extension for FIrefox called CacheViewer. It'll get you there quicker.

VideoDownload Helper tends to hang Firefox for me... But CacheViewer looks pretty handy!
