Often the swf file may itself only be a reference file that loads in external images, sounds, and video so sometimes just simply saving the file won't help you. There are other programs that can decompile a swf into a fla file. Great for learning new coding skills but you don't want to run around borrowing everyone's code and swf assets.

I use SothinK to snatch and decompile the file.
once it's decompiled you can grab the source (it shows the location).

How to save this .swf file from the web (hard problem!)

Hi buddies I'm so glad to have found this forum and it's still active! I have a problem that seems to be really hard to solve--I have tried day and night and haven't figured out a way. I want to save a flash video from a web site to my computer. Below is the address. You'll see the video playing but can you save it to PC? If you can figure out a way, please do let me know and I'll be forever grateful!! Address: http://www.tcm.com/video/videoPlayerFrame/?cid=32112
Thanks in advance for any help!

I looked at it they're trying to hide the source in the code. Asswipes ....lol

Just do a screen capture (video/audio) - use wme, camtasia, or any other video/audio capture. If you can see it and hear it it can be captured..... Take that Ted!

Ted Turner locked up my browser they got so much script running in the damn thing.
Simple java calls to hide the damn thing - not exactly secure but a good deterent for me....lol

Thanks a lot for the tips. I just used wme to capture the screen but it doesn't look good (resembling bad photocopies) and has no sound . Been downloading camtasia--takes hours to download this program. Will see if it works better... Hope there's a better way to get the actual file

Hello.

I'm trying to get these videos onto my hard drive:

http://www.blood-lefilm.com (you have to press the "videos" link to access the page where the videos I'd like are)

but nothing seems to be working. I've tried looking in my Temp folder, and there is nothing in there that is related to the videos.

Here is what I got from the "view source":

http://veerlebub.tripod.com/viewsource/

But I don't see a .swf file in there.

Help? If anyone can tell me a sure way to get them, or even get them for me and just post the links, I'd be very grateful!

Hi Lady Saya, I use Orbit Downloader to grab Youtube videos and other embedded videos. Here's a tutorial on how to use it.

Use Firefox and save page as, the swf file should be among the files saved.
