I have tried a couple of Flash downloaders but I don't arrive at downloading "Adobe Presenter" Flash documents.

I'd like to have a particular presentation offline to show it to a group of students while not having access to the Internet.

Just as an example: here is a good example of a presentation: [Adobe Presenter Introduction][1] [1]: – Matthias Nov 27 '09 at 11:34

Quickest way may be to look at Httrack which can allow you to download entire websites to look at offline.

Other than that, I would look at the source code for .SWF files and manually take a copy, however if you are not having success with the flash downloaders, it may not help.

Lastly, it may be that the <object> tags within the web page contain some information needed in order to run the flash files for example, you may have downloaded a player but no content. You may want to double check the source code of the page and download any hidden/extra files and copy and paste the entire sections to an HTML page and change the links from to file:///c:\whatever\bla.swf etc.

Thanks a lot for the quick response, I'll go ahead and try it tonight. – Matthias Nov 27 '09 at 11:36

I tried it over the (mac/unix) terminal (through wget), DeepVacuum, that is essentially tweaking terminal inputs and SiteSucker all to no avail.

There is the added issue of the file in question sitting behind a Shibboleth university wall of authentication which probably makes getting the file no less complicated. Mhm.
