    Hi people

    Firstly apologise if this is not in the correct section this is a general question.

    Just after some advise. My mate got marries out in Vegas and there wedding video has been uploaded onto the Flamingo Casino website. They are asking a ridiculous amount for them to have there video footage and he has approached me asking if I could get it.

    I've searced around for various software, one site was saying about Firebug for Firefox I tried and failed at that.

    Can anyone either suggest or point me in the right direction on how I could potentially download this Flash movie from the website myself?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I appreciate the info I have done as you said but it saves it to my desktop in a shockwave media format, and it's 52kb in size so to me this does not sound right?

    You should try the Foxfire plug in Downloadhelper. It should be able to do what you want.

    You really should use HTTPfox

    There is a filter for HTTP traffic, put .flv and you will see the movie start to download.

    Then just grab the direct link, open in new tab and save.

    Hope this helps

    depends on how exactly their site is set up, but try viewing source (ctrl+u) and then using CTRL+F to search for a file in the .flv format
