I want to download a movie which is played by flash: jfk-1963

It is in Public Domain but I am not able to download the source file. I already tried

  • Firebug
  • Downloadhelper

with no success.

Wireshark allows you to look directly in the network packages.

  • search for the "Handshake"-package
  • get the content of this package (They contain the rtmp-data)
  • use rtmpdump to get the stream:

rtmpdump -r "rtmp://" -y "mp4:s/ZsZzRlOTpDOcLzXSWvMhv10uoykcOaCh/DOcJ-FxaFrRg4gtDEwOnVhOjBrO_9PjD" | vlc - should work
