I need to save a video from the Senate Finance Committee's hearings video library so that I can edit out a small snippet of testimony.

**I initially called and asked their press office and because the video is in the public domain they said it is not against their rules for individuals to pull video from the site to re-post**
We want to pull a video of testimony to put up a clip of our person on our site. They post full videos of testimony on their webpage. Here is an example
To accomplish this I tried using Tube Master ++ which has always worked for me in the past, and it would start loading the video only to conk out after about 7 seconds. I tried a couple of Flash Firefox downloading extensions but no luck with any of them. I also tried Jing, a webcasting tool, and it captured the video nicely but my soundcard at work appears to be insufficient to record the audio.
Worst case scenario I can just smush the audio and video tracks together in video editing software, but I'd like to be able to pull the full video.
