I am trying to download a Flash video, so I can try to convert it to a normal DVD.
Is it possible to download this video? If so, how could I do this?
If you have Firefox, install the Download Helper extension.
In Safari it's a bit convoluted, but if you
you'll see something loading with the extension flv or swf. (In the case of the linked video above, it's actually an MP4 file, which may or may not be because I use clickToflash on my Mac.)
Easily download YouTube movies via Safari Web Browsers has a (possibly clearer) explanation, along with a bunch more application recommendations that can automate this process for you, including a bookmarklet:
Here is the simplest way by which you can download any flash video from any website:
I usually use Keepvid to download videos from web, the procedure is quite simple:
Copy the URL of video from YouTube or other sites and then navigate to Keepvid.com.
Paste the URL into download field and then click "Download".
Wait for the app detects the source of video and it will expand a list of several media formats for you to choose.
Select a media format you prefer and click on the "Download" icon along with it, and then you just need to wait for a short while till the download completes.
Once done, you will get the flash video in chosen format in download directory of your browser.
Keepvid currently supports up to 30 sites as described on its official site, if you're looking for alternative video downloader with more functions, you may also check sites like Keepvid.
