    Can anyone help me download this video? My kid brother was there and I wanted a record of it for him. I used Firefoxs Download Helper to to get this file (an advert plays first) MunsterRugbySummerCamp.flv, but when I play it but I only get a the audio track.

    I tried converting it to an .mpg with VisualHub and it turned the 23mb flv file into a 1.4mb mpg so I guess that the flv I got down only contained audio.

    Have you tried this method?

    Also a 23MB (MegaByte) .flv file surely contains video, just very compressed.
    Can you play the .flv video in VLC Player?

    Have you tried ClickToFlash's ability to download many videos (especially YouTube) in its original .mp4 format?

    Have you taken a look at the vast amount of already existing threads via MRoogle?

    Can you maybe post a link to that video?

    You have the whole file. VisualHub is no longer being developed so most likely it doesn't support the video format. Plays fine in Quicktime with Perian.
