    I need to rip a video encoded in flash for a friend, its not a youtube or google video, just a random site with a clip he want!

    any idea how I can get it off??

    and posibly convert it to a quicktime video, or *vomits* WMV
    ^not as important right now, though...

    I just need the FLV file!

    In Safari, go to Window->Activity and look for this item:

    hxxp://64.237.40.51/media/flv/f/familyguyruprtfuneral.flv?media=27f35146e033a04e91cc93db6fba859e

    Double click on it and it will download to the desktop

    Done this many many many many many times.
    Get visualhub to do the conversion for you, works a treat.

    Sound Problem with FLV Files Downloaded Through Safari

    Not sure if this response will be read on what seems to be a problem solved, but for the first time I am having problems with this method. From what I can remember I've always used the Activity window in Safari to download .flv files from websites with no problem, but I have been trying to grab one from a site for the past half-hour and every time I go to play it through VLC (or Quicktime with Perian, etc.), the audio is just a hissing sound. The video has perfect audio online, and I was wondering whether there is some sort of protection that can be put on these videos to protect you from downloading them to your computer (even though that seems kind of odd, considering the fact that this technique works is because they have, theoretically, already been downloaded there) OR if I must be doing something wrong this time. Please let me know if anyone has had this problem, or if you know what the problem may be.

    Thanks for reading!

    hi,

    i'm currently trying...i've tried the methods listed here as well as downloaded a few flv dloaders/rippers and nothing works on this one...

    the video is on here
    http://www.prosieben.de/wissen/multimedia/videos/videoplayer/50001/

    and all i can see in activity is the opener and closer vids....not the main part of the programme.

    can anyone help?!?
