Does anyone know how I can download this video:

http://www.tsn.ca/hockey-canada/video/babcock-opens-up-about-matthews-marner-and-leafs-future~870947

 

TSN is a flash based site I think.  I tried using video captures like camtasia and fraps but the problem is whether I use 20fps 30 or 60fps, the recorded video plays back laggy/choppy.  

 

Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks

Use Firefox and this extension. If you do not want Firefox as an install you can download the portable version of Firefox.

Thanks John.

 

I tried it and it downloaded the advertisement fine, but the actual interview wasn't being downloaded in 1 file.  It started to download it in chunk of 0.5 to 1 mb in file size every 20 seconds for the entire 16 minute interview.  So I was left tons of these small files and when I tried to download it, it was only called 'video.undefined'.

 

Any ideas?

Some sites do this to prevent you from downloading the video. I will take a look at it.

 

Unfortunately, this video cannot be downloaded with the extension. I tried another extension and it failed also. Sorry.

I have been using the Firefox extension Easy Media Download for the last year and it's the best one I have used. It will download any video or image. I used it yesterday to download a UFC fight from Saturday that I uploaded to my blog. It should be able to download the TSN video as Daily Motion does the same thing to discourage downloading and this seems to be the only product that will download Daily Motion videos.

Thanks for the heads up on Easy Media Download. I will take a look at it.

 

 Edit: From looking at the extension it seems to only open the shortcut to page source and the looking under the Media Tab. I did this manually and could not find the video the OP was looking for. Maybe I have the wrong extension.

Maybe that video is copy protected and therefore not downloadable.

 

 

 

EDIT: I just checked and the video clip is copy protected I don't know of anything that will download a copy protected clip.
