    I Need a Program to Download FLV's from the WEB
    I'm having a problem finding a program to download FLV files from the web.
    I'm not looking for a converter. Just a program to download the videos from a webpage. Pretty simple idea but having a problem finding a program.

    I know of one program called SWF & FLV Player PRO. But you have to buy it.
    I'm looking for one for free. I know they exist!

    MAC GODS HELP ME FOR I AM IN NEED.
    I'M NOT WORTHY!

    Watch the video in your browser or just let it cache completely. In the top of your browser select the "Window" menu item and the "Activity". A windows will pop open with a ">" for each tab you have open in your browser. When you click the ">" it will expand the items that your Mac has accessed from the web page. You can select the items who's size is increasing if it is still caching or if it's done then select the largest file. Select the file and hit "Option" + double-click and it will download to your default download spot. You can then view the .flv with Adobe Media Player or many other applications.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    VLC is good for viewing .flv files, iSquint for converting to MP4 for iPod use.

    Hope this helps in anticipating your next move . . .
