how can I save swf file from a flash website in Firefox please?
Not sure about Firefox, but in Safari go to Window -> Activity, and Option-click on the .swf file.
ok,i tryed it but it just open the swf in anather window,how do i save it on the desktop?
My mistake, you need to hold down Option and double-click the file name
The downloaded file should appear in your downloads folder.
When the .swf opens in the new window. Go to 'File > Save as...'.
EDIT: ^or do that
Usually I can save these things by using all of the various methods mentioned here and then some, but I'm at a loss as to why an swf like the following can't be saved as a full feature:
It can be saved as a rather small 44.5 kB file which, of course, is not the complete file - I guess it's just the link to the stream?
Anyway, it's only available for a short time and I'd like to be able to save it.
I've considered SnapzPro, but a reason I'd like to save the movie is because it's a bit jittery when I watch it during streaming, so I thought that actually capturing it would be easier to watch as an archived piece.
Open to suggestions please,
Oh, I can use Firefox and/or Safari.
Wow! I guess it can't be done if we have over 280,000 members and not one person can answer this.
I ran into the same problem and figured the following worked for me. Copy the URL of the SWF file and paste in your Safari browser, go to Window > Activity in here you'll see the FLV file that is embedded. Copy that into a HTML page or paste in address bar and Save As or drag to download window. If you want to convert this to a movie for iPods etc download the program called iSquint.
swf and others through firefox
