How do you do it? What addons should I use for FF or Safari?
I usually just look for the .swf file in the html code and download it that way. This works, but I'd imagine there's probably an easier way.
I usually do it to play simple flash games full screen. What are you trying to do?
EDIT: Ok... this might sound stupid, but what exactly do you mean? Do you want to download the flash file or prevent the flash file from ever displaying?
I'm trying to get a flash video off of youtube. There's some I want to edit to make something funny.
Ok... if that's the case it's more difficult.
You need to use a program... the only one I know of is called tubesock. It isn't free, but the demo allows you to encode up to a minute of a youtube video. I think the full version costs $10.
Flashblock doesn't work on FF 2.
and I can't seem to find a way to install addblock.
EDIT: I have flashblock installed but I don't see the option to download.
u can't install adblock? why? how about adblock+ ?
Here you go.
In Safari, open the page with the YouTube video you want. Open the Activity window (Option-Command-A) and look for the largest item that loaded...I think it has "get_video" somewhere in the URL. Double click that and it will download. Tell the OS to use VLC to open the file, and there you go!
you can download youtube vids by using either greecemonkey (there are scripts that let you download the .flv files) or by using a plugin like videodownloader. both will download the flv file. you have to convert it by using somehting like isquint or media hub
oh, sorry, i thought u want to block them , lol
to download a video
install a extension called
after that, on youtube's page, u can click the button on the bottom right of the window, it will allow you to save it.

Currently using the online converter
