    Is there a way to download videos from myspace?
    My PC hard drive has crashed and there is a video on there that I really want to get back. I uploaded it to my myspace and I am really hoping there is a way to download it to my mac. I have been looking online only to find plug in after plug in that don't seem to work and or websites claiming you can do this by providing a link with not success. I am desperate to get this video back because it's of my daughter. Thanks!

    Videos on MySpace are in Flash format, so you'd want something that claims to capture FLV video. Check on MacUpdate.com and do a search for flash download, check the ratings and see if there's one that specifically says it can grab from myspace. HTH

    I didn't have much luck. I found a couple of different ones that work great for youtube. They didn't specify if they worked with myspace so I gave it a shot but no luck. There were tons of results to go through so I will probably go back and do more looking. I found some online that are for windows only so when I get my windows pc up and running I will see if I can use one of those programs perhaps.

    I am also still crossing my fingers that I will be able to get some data off my hard drive. Not getting my hopes up though.

    Also this makes me realize it's time to back up my mac drive!!

    Youtube is easy as you can just open the activity window, find the largest entry for youtube, double click on it and it downloads, no additional software needed. Myspace is a different story tho as their entire thing is shockwave and it streams differently.

    HERE is a free FLV downloader for Mac's. There is a extended version for $29 but if its only the one movie you want might be worth a try if you havnt already.

    Good luck as it isnt nice to loose such prised possession's

    Since it's your own account on myspace that you uploaded it with (I'm assuming) - maybe try contacting myspace support and explaining the situation, they may somehow make the file available to you for download...?

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions! Much appreciated. I found a whole bunch of photos that I backed up to disc that I had forgotten about so that was nice! Made me feel a bit better. Who knows maybe they would help me out. It's worth a shot!

    Mashable.com has a page with several video downloaders which work for youtube, myspace, and many other video sites

    I have used keepvid.com and it worked well.
