    I'm attending now online course and instead of printing page by page and saving to PDF (using doPDF), is there anyway of saving the flash video from a website? I'm planning to do lots of online course and i want to save the flash video instead of converting page by page to PDF.

    I tried tools--page info--media but i can't find the flash video.

    everytime i log-in and click my online course there's a pop-up new window for flash video only.

    Any advise please?

    thank you.

    it didn't work.

    there's no animation on downloadhelper icon and there's no menu to allows me to download files or the video.

    the flash video that pop-up might be protected?

    Not everything can be downloaded ... If downloadHelper did not work, maybe try using ffmpeg to stream it and redirect output to file? See my Flash tutorial explaining this ...

    Check if flashgot works or not. IIRC it has a status bar icon which blinks if it captures a media d/l.

    U should try Orbit Downloader, its a freeware. Works with me,run orbit n their is the option of GRAB++ n refresh ur browser. It will catch whatever flv video is running.
    To make life earsier here is a Direct Download Link:

    If you're using IE and it's a flv, you can simply verify your TIF (temporary internet files) folder and the flv should be there.

    Firefox + DownloadHelper extension
    Orbit Downloader
    and any video downloader for Youtube-like video.

    The link show up in your page source? You can't forward it 'cause you've gotta be signed in, right?
