    Anyone have any advice on ripping stubborn (i.e. protected) flv videos that cannot be captured through the usual methods? Neither Firefox video download or the UnPlug tool will work for the site I'm looking at. Tried windows>activity in Safari (just brings up the video as an mp4 in a new browser window) and when I tried right-click/view source, it appears the code is protected: Code <input type="text" value="[VIDEO]/video/434/433860/8350.flv[/VIDEO]"

    Please help!

    Did you try holding down the ALT-key while double-clicking? That is one of the most usual methods.

    Can't find the FLV file in Safari Activity Window!!!

    I usually have no problem saving video from sites but I was sent a link to a site for an apartment building and wanted to save a tour video of one of the apartments to show someone. I opened the Activity window in Safari and everything is small sized in KB's and nothing says FLV at the end and for the life of me I can't figure out how this is so protected that I can't even find the video????
    Can anyone help? I just want to save the video.
