Save Flash video files from local cache
Authored by: Spencerian on Mar 18, '08 01:03:12PM

An easier way to save any Flash movies, automatically, is through RealPlayer 11 beta and its surprise utility (installed with RP), RealPlayer Downloader. This app watches for any Flash movie that appears in a web browser and notes its in its download browser, giving you the option to save it as a movie file to the computer (probably in RP or other platform format). I normally don't like surprise-ware, but this one's great as it appears to work with places such as SciFi.com and YouTube.com automatically. For the average Jane Nohack, it may be an easier thing than to pillage hidden directories.

I totally agree that RealPlayer Downloader is the way to go with this. It simply saves the file in flv format. Very easy to use. Kudos to Real for this great surprise utility.

Just want to mention that this is not a separate application, it lives inside RealPlayer.
Open RealPlayer 11
Go to Window>Open RealPlayer Downloader

Save Flash video files from local cache

Toast 10 can do this BTW, too (I implemented it :)

Open the Media Browser. Switch the Popop menu to "Web Video". Once you view a Flash movie, it'll appear in the Toast Media Browser. Wait until the video has played (loaded) fully in the Web Browser before you attempt to use it in Toast (you can see that also in Toast where the name will start with "..." as long as the video is still recording).
No worries - Toast will retain all viewed videos even if they've ended, as long as you don't quit Toast.
