    I couldn't think of the best place to ask this question, so if there is a better place, please let me know.

    I just got a new course and they don't allow downloading of the materials and have attempted to block the files from being able to be downloaded.

    The files consist of PDF and videos.

    The videos were easy to download using Firefox and DownloadHelper... no problems there.

    The ones I can't get are the PDFs. They have them encrypted as SWF using Print2Flash. I've searched online, but can't find any way to get around this and get the source PDF. When I try to download, it just downloads a .SWF file that doesn't do anything.

    I also tried to use Snagit to just take screenshots of the PDFs, but since they have the PDFs pop up in the page (similar to a Lightbox effect), the Snagit scroll option doesn't detect the embedded scroll option.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!
