There is someone with a video that you can play in their JW player on their website. How do you find the streaming url for that video? It's not in the source code of the page.
 
I don't see how it couldn't be in the source file. It's likely stuffed in a .js file if there wasn't a direct variable embeded along with the .swf's url or html.

It's not like there's only one player file for each individual video on one's server, and then the video itself. With that said, if you can't embed it by clicking a share button, they've likely already prevented all but a select few servers if that, from requesting it.

JWPlayer isn't typically used by the "mainstream" companies. They'd likely do what I would, and prevent you from accessing it server-side so you couldn't screw them from advertisements or potential conversions of memberships.
 
It should be in the source code somewhere if you are sure it's the JW player. Also, maybe look for suspected AWS URL because JW can stream from AWS to clients' computer.
 
right click -> view page source -> search for "JW" -> it usually has the location from where the video is streamed -> create a new html page with that link -> right click -> save link as

i hope it helped :)

there are also some services that rip videos from jw player but none comes to mind right now...
 
Right click- Inspect element - Network tab - Refresh website and click play - You should then be able to locate the video there

It's a live video game playing stream. I can't seem to find it doing that. Any other ideas?
