    I have seen some people asking how they can download videos from different sites which have embed videos (of course not youtube, metacafe etc.).
    So here is a quick guide for you:
    For this method use firefox.
    I don't know if it is working with ie because I never use it but have heard some people telling that it is not working with ie.
    Go to the site with desired video and right click on the web page and select "view page info".
    There you will have media tab. Click on it.
    If it is a video you are loking for search for swf file or you look by name if there are many different media files.
    If you click on the video link you will see "save as.." icon. Click on it and video will be downloaded.
    It will probably have swf extension. You can watch it with flash player but you do not need to convert it in order to upload it on youtube.

    Hope it will help some people. I wasn't sure were to post it so if any of you think there is better place for it tell mods to move it.
    Wish everyone a good day!

    I always view the source-code and search for ".swf" oder ".flv". but using the page info in FF seems like an easier way.

    I've had quite success with IDM (Internet Download Manager). It installs a plugin on the browser and puts a "download video" icon right next to all the videos so you can just click on it to download.

    I must say also that IDM is not freeware and that I am not affiliated with them in any way.

    Today many video sites are embedding their videos with JavaScript and video are quite invisible in the page source. The only way is to install the great Firefox extension Firebug and get all the streams linked to a page.

    I've been using KeepVid. I can DL anything from YouTube, DailyMotion, etc. - make my modifications in the .mp4 format it saves as, and upload the video back under one of my accounts. All you need is the URL of the page that the video is.

    The best addon for firefox is Download helper. It has a inbuilt converter which downloads any sort of streaming from any site and converts it into lots of video format. No registration, nothing. Just simply download the converter and install it along with the firefox addon.

    I will have to try out IDM. It sounds like this does what KeepVid does and more.
