Hi, these little javascript video pop ups on demand, does one record it?
I missed a tv show and I don't have a capture card either.

Thanks.

Maybe check out video help com/capture. (http://www.videohelp.com/capture). There's plenty of programs to help. I have used this site and it has all things video...

Are you talking about TVNZOnDemand? If so you can use a program called URLSnooper to identify a direct link to the .flv video file, and download and save it using your favourite download manager.

You usually don't even need that, sometimes you can just view the source of the page & pick out the link to the .flv file.

Thanks guys.
Here is my situation. Its a cooking recipe video clip of like 1-2mins.
There is no view source under IE when I view it, there is no link. If I searcdh for flv it finds nothing.
I tried Urlsnooper but it doesn't work.

I streamed it in IE and it pops up on my Temporary Internet Folder as a .dat file if I play it there it works, if I copy it to a diff folder, it no longer works.

So .. what is a way now?
Is it possible to stream it offline (as online its choppy) on my BB connection. I can stream it online choppy, go offline and play the cache file. While its playing I can use a utility to record it. What s/w does it? The file opens up in Media Player but when I choose copy to a device .. it says "cannot copy".

So is there a utility that records video/sound on whatever shows up on my screen at any given time?


Thanks.

Its Gordon's F Word series in video format. The site was changed, before it showed NZ was in the 2nd series, while UK was already in its 3rd series. I like it, some v quick ways of cooking...

Would that work?
It works with youtube and stuff with a proper url .. this one only has a javascript popup ...

Running URLSnooper on the Saddle of Lamb recipe gives me this link: rtsp://a1674.v154785.c15478.g.vm.akamaistream.net/7/1674/15478/v0004/origin.channel4.com/life/fword/1_lamb.wmv

Which can be downloaded using a download manager.

Thanks for the help, initially I thought it seeks the link itself without I have to surf to the video link.

I have tried it .. I can get the link .. I have also used your link you have posted and that does not work w/ Download Accelerator. Any other ways?

You'll need to find a download manager which supports rstp. I think Flashget does, but be wary that the latest version(s) are a bit dodgy (phoning home).

If you have no luck downloading, perhaps consider converting or modifying the temporary internet or dat file you mentioned earlier. Then you may be able to save the conerted file to your PC for viewing. Here's a bit of a tutorial (http://forum.videohelp.com/topic259578.html) (Video Help com) -that may help...
