how to copy flash video from a website? (not from youtube)

I apologise if this question has been asked before, but is there a program that I can download--preferably freeware, that will solve this problem?

Essentially there is a website with some video tutorials on trading. In the location bar there is no swf or .flv file extension. So, i'm a little stuck as to how I can copy it from this place.

I know with youtube there are websites on the web that allow you to enter the URL of the website that contains the flash video and it will then allow you to download it as a .flv file. However these sorts of websites only work on youtube and not other sites.

Any advice on how I could solve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to save a flash video, but its off a news site and they have some ad before it and its embedded into a player; I used firebug but I couldn't get anything useful out of it. Due to it containing my full name and address I'd rather not post it here.. if someone is experienced with these things and would be willing to give me a little guidance I'd be forever grateful. PM please

Hi Bill, I found that when I sometimes try to use firebird and then click on 'net tab', it does not show the video details.

But, if I copy the link from the 'location bar' at the top of the browser and open it in a another window or tab and then hit f12 or click on tools-->firebird...then firbird pops up on the screen and you scroll down to the 20 meg file or however big the movie file is....then right click on the movie file and 'open in a new tab'.

When I do that and then close the previous window, it opens the movie again but this time after the movie is loaded you can use firefox to save the file. (go to file-->save page as, and it should save the file to your hard drive.

I use smartsniff with winpcap.

Awesome, thanks, I got it.

Does anyone know of a good converter? I've tried two "online" ones, downloaded two free ones, and nothing has worked so far. I got an FLV player and it manages to play the video fine so I know thats not the problem.. ideas?

Sorry, I meant to go from .flv to something more generic like divx.

Look up a program called xvid4psp. It is my favourite program and can convert pretty much everything.
