    Hey folks, I have a few tools which I use now to download various media files to my pc. I mostly use them to download videos created by various memberships I belong to or freebies people give out which interest me that i use for reference.

    I usually use Net Video Hunter, a browser plugin which i'm sure many of you use or are familiar with anyway. Well, here's my problem...

    I am trying to download some videos from one of my memberships but net video hunter doesn't work, Orbit doesn't work, and viewing source to get the actual video url doesn't work.

    The reason the view source doesn't work is because it looks as some kind of java script is being used to pull the video from it's location and shown on the web page. I don't really know java or any kind of language really, and viewing the source doesn't make much difference because it doesn't list the actual url where the video is anyway.

    Outside of using camtasia to copy all the video, does anyone know how to download these kind of videos formatted like this or can point me to a tool able to get around this?

    Any help is appreciated.

    and if not, you can get swf decompiler, it should do the job as well.
