Hello, all.


I am one who prefers to use my PC for virtually everything which includes watching videos online. However I have a problem. My internet connection isn't stable and keeps disconnecting every so often. My question is is it at all possible to find the video links on a site? I don't mean the page link, I mean the actual video link itself. What I intend to do is paste it into my download manager so that if when my connection refuses to participate, it won't waste the download but will continue after.


I know you can use KeepVid for sites like YouTube and Metacafe, but for others it doesn't work. I installed an add-on for FF to allegedly capture videos but I couldn't see anything. It told me there'd be a button but I looked and couldn't find a thing. I also went to customise the browser to see if I had to manually place it there but that didn't show anything, either.


To explain my question:

is the page link for "GTA San Andreas - Walkthrough - Mission #96 - Cut Throat Business (HD)". One of the actual video links for that particular video on that particular page, depending on which quality you choose, is:


Is it at all possible to find similar video links on any site so I can paste it into my download manager? I have tried looking in the page source and going to save media in FF looking in there to see if it would show me, but I couldn't find anything. I don't understand how a webpage can have a video on it but not have anything in the source to show the actual video link; it's as if it's there but not there at the same time.
