Help me record a flash stream
March 21, 2011 11:44 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for a way to record/save a movie file that is streamed through flash. The source for the page indicates that player.swf is the function used to display the video, and the source of the video stream is a .m4v file. However, I cannot directly access the .m4v file by putting that address into my browser (I get an permission denied error). Is there an (ideally free) way to record or save this stream to a normal video file on my computer? I'm on a Mac.
