Hi,

Here's my problem: I'd very much like to download an embedded flash video from this page: The Official Natalie Merchant Website | Leave Your Sleep | Watch | The Man in the Wilderness. (One has to click 'start' for the flash to load.)

But web developers have become wily it seems. No longer do the old methods appear to work. I've tried: Apps for downloading youtube videos, using the Activity window in Safari (only a small SWF file of about 21kb appears in the activity window), numerous Firefox plugins… To no avail.

There are apparently apps for Windows that can manage to download these tricky types of videos, is there anything or any method on the Mac? I've been ripping my hair out trying. I've searched the forum, but none of the suggested methods work.

(Also, I don't want to use a video-capture app, I'd like to download the original file.)

Please help!

The reason it's locked down is because you aren't intended to download it. Period.
