Is there a way to record incoming flash video steams? If you know... please respond. thanks!
something like tubesock
Might check out keepvid.com; it's what I use.
If that won't work, you could use a screen-recording app. Not sure if Copernicus will do audio, but Snapz Pro will (and I think there's a cheaper app, but can't think of it's name.)
Are you talking Flash Streaming Video or Flash Video Files .flv (i.e. youtube)? If you're talking the latter, than the easiest way to download the file (using Safari) would be to open the activity window while the clip is playing and find the file with the http://.........flv extension. Double-click on it and it will start downloading to your hard drive.
Now, if it is streaming, then you will have to use one of the previouly mentioned apps.
For youtube I always use videodl.org You just cut and paste the url and you get a download link. The activity window post or tubesock method also work but can be confusing (activity window) or have a cost associated with them (tubesock).
There is also a firefox extension called getvideo (or something like that) that performs a similar function.
VideoDownloader is the extension I use for Firefox. I have found that Youtube
videos don't appear in Safari's activity window, so that option is out. When you
save a video using VideoDownloader, it will be named get_video. Rename it
what you want, and then add the .flv extension. I use the latest VLC player
(Mac and PC versions) to play the saved clips.
Try "CosmoPod". It's a plug-in for Safari. You add its button to your tool bar and it's enabled when there is flash movie content on the current page. Click the button, and it's downloaded. You can use it with the perian FLV decoder, and it will automatically convert it and, if you like, add to iTunes. Or, you can leave just download the FLV and convert it using something like VisualHub. (I'm using it that way, as I'd rather not mess with the codecs, unless I have to)
An easy way to record online stream with high quality
In my view to record computer screen or online streaming videos, by using streaming video recorder or webcam recorder will be a faster and cheaper way of producing and saving your online videos content.This is most advanced FLV Video Webcam Recorder with cutting edge technology designed to give highest quality with sharp videos or images.
Videobox is what I use. Costs $15, but works perfectly for me.
