I am wondering how to download a video from a website that is playing a flash video. I have no idea where to start or what best programs there are to use. I'd appreciate the help. I am just wanting to download the video and maybe put it on my ipod which would be amazing!

Here is the video: http://www.seahawks.com/videos-photos/videos/2010-Rewind---Music-Mash-Up/da542d15-5263-4718-ad1d-07acc1bda545

Thanks for any help,

Davis

Saw this program review earlier today and after reading your post thought you might want to check it out.

Freemake Video Downloader description, Download Managers Downloads List By 30 Day Change | PCWorld - PCWorld

Editorial Review of Freemake Video Downloader
Freemake Video Downloader is a completely free app that rips a Flash video from one of a number of Web sources and converts the video to the format you want for offline viewing. The previous version was already a must-have app, and version 2.0 adds a few critical new features to the mix that make it even better. The app now converts on the fly as it downloads, which saves a lot of time. All of the video file types and presets formerly present only in sister app Freemake Video Converter are now included, meaning that only one app is now required ............................

If you're using Firefox, a good plugin for it is 'Flashgot'

It will download most youtube videos as well.

That's not what he is looking for. It looks very similar to a product I have used in the past called URLSnooper. He just wants the video clip. He doesn't need all that other stuff. And Real Player is the best product to use to download non-Youtube video clips. You click on the download button at the top right hand corner of the player and then you can do whatever you want with the clip.

In my opinion, the best capture/conversion program for web video is DownloadHelper - http://www.downloadhelper.net/. It has rarely failed to capture the video. I don't use the conversion part much but it had done the job when I have used it.

I use this free extension with Firefox (I think there is a Chrome version). It will capture video clips as well as audio only from sites. Most of the time I just start playing the video/audio on the web site and click the DH button, click Save and let it do its thing. You will get a little nag box every 500 captures.

For some sites that DH doesn't work, I use the previously mentioned RealPlayer SP. The main thing I dislike about the program is that it creates a library and makes it difficult to store videos where I want. It has conversion capabilities but I don't know how many formats are supported. Hope this helps.

I also recommend RealPlayer. I haven't found any sites it can't download the video from plus it automatically puts up a button "Download this video".
