Downloading a Flash Presentation

Hey guys,

My company gave me a user name and password to access a webpage that contains flash video presentations for training.

I want to download the flash file so I can watch the presentation when I'm on the train and have no internet connection.

I'm able to download the the flash file (.swf) but when I try to load the file in Safari or any other web browser, it comes up blank.

Any idea? Thanks

You can't - the SWF is just a stub. Likely the presentation is stored in a format that can't be saved offline since it's kept on a remote server. If it has any sort of interactivity in it, it won't be something you can download and view offline.

Ah okay. Thank you for the information. I suppose I'll just do a screen recording.

Thanks for the info!

I was also going to add that likely the presentation is not going to be one big file - it's probably made up of several components that require server side oriented. Even if you could download them all (and you probably can't) they wouldn't be able to work properly together.
