Need ideas on how to download a Video off a website
Sun News ^ | Mozilla

Posted on 06/30/2013 7:19:42 PM PDT by Mozilla

I am unable to download a video off Sun news which I wanted to post on Youtube. Any ideas. Nothing I tired works. Download helper in Firefox failed as did The real player device to download which never appeared and the Internet Download manager icon to download did not appear either. Any ideas on how to download it?

Google has really cracked down on browser plug-ins that download flicks.

Looks like several sites have cracked down. Because it is still a flash player video but my plugins don’t work now.

“Film” it using a video camera. Upload the video.

I’m guessing that if you succeed in pirating it and putting on youtube, it would get yanked from there due to copyright violation. Youtube has recently been taking down lots of stuff that’s been up for a long time.

Hmmm.. Downloadhelper extension is diabled.. There is a program called Screencast-o-matic that records anything you do on your monitor, including playing videos. I don't know if that will work, but worth investigating.

The website you are trying to download from (sunnewsnetwork.ca) is not supported by KeepVid.

RealPlayer has a video capture utility. CNET can be searched for video capture programs to download. But then, not everything can be captured.

Well I was just aiming to pass off some news, not post movies or shows. But I gather that they are cracking down. Still people do manage to post stuff from news sites on youtube.

Yeah I understand that. I have noticed in recent month that some devices have stopped working with download applications that have been around for a while and were working fine. What I found on Fox News that they switched some videos, mostly the ones from shows on the channel, to a newer format that is harder to download. It is called the Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming and all the files end with a .f4f. But I am not able to detect is Sun News is using that format. Don’t seem like it because it seems to be a flash video format.

Go grab the html source and see if you find the actual stored clip.

Then just grab it.

But many outlets now make the stored clips very difficult to find.

Sunnewsvideo has a youtube channel. Chances are they will put it up or you could request that they do.

Presidential speeches are not subject to copyright. They belong to all of us.

Never mind, this was a discussion on the speech, not the speech itself. I misread the OP’s original post.

It’s a breitbart.com interview with Ezra Levant.

Yeah. Missed that originally. Thought the OP was talking about the speech, itself.

You’re more advanced than I am in this area. I only know that RealPlayer attempts to keep up with these changes, and not always succeeds, and that its plug-in keeps crashing in Chrome after it hangs it for a minute or so when you load some pages, not even attempting to capture anything. I haven’t used any others capturers, though I’ve probably downloaded some at one point or another.

Thanks I’ll try the screen-o-matic software because many flv download softwares are being disabled on various sites.

This might work, NCH Debut Capture Software. These people ate pretty goot at utilities of different kinds. Australian firm.

Yeah well I gave up downloading some websites because they quit working with the plugins or they crashed.

Thanks. I will try that. Seems to me that the screen-o-matic has issues recording audio sound unless you pay for it. I could but I’ll try this one first.

That one is more for downloading streams but it may work with video.

I'm no kind of an expert or een advanced, but in WinXP there was a cache in temporary internet files, with a strange name, which was used to "replay" the video repeatedly. Changing the name allowed saving it to my hard drive.
I have not found the equivalent folder in Win 7.
Anyone?

Try Internet Explorer, then check the cached temp files.

Orbit Downloader ver.4 would probably work also but I find Replay Media Catcher easier to use.
