    Here's a simple way to get your hands on Animoto videos so you can upload them, re-edit them etc etc.


    If you've ever used Animoto (hxxp://animoto.com/) you'll know it's a great way to create cool videos - incredibly easy to use with several themes and lots of free music tracks. The free version is limited to 30 seconds and you can't download the videos to re-edit or upload to YouTube or your own site. Which is a bit of a limitation.


    Not now though with an easy trick.


    1) Get Started -> choose style -> Add Images/Text -> Click Preview Video

    [​IMG]


    2) Enter Title and Description -> Click Produce

    [​IMG]


    3) When presented, the link to the video page like this: hxxp://animoto.com/play/Cf96WklJIz5vQBgyaT18Xg.


    4) Copy the final multi character string (example -Cf96WklJIz5vQBgyaT18Xg)


    5) Paste it into this URL:
    http://s3-p.animoto.com/Video/insert-string-here/360p.mp4


    You'll end up downloading your video and you're then free to do whatever you want with it.


    Hope it will helpful!

    I just used the method from the OP and it works. You have to copy and paste the string of numbers from the animoto video to the link he provided.
