Download Adobe Presenter Flash Files
November 27, 2009 3:29 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to download a particular "Adobe Presenter" (Flash) document to show it to a group of students without having access to the Internet. How do I download these Flash files to replay them on my computer?

I have tried a couple of Flash downloaders but I don't arrive at downloading "Adobe Presenter" Flash documents. I have the authorization to get the presentation offline but I don't have access to the "mother-file".

Here is an example of the type of presentation I'm looking at. (same link as in the title).

(Preferably macish, but both Windows and Mac solutions are appreciated)

Just to get started: I tried it over the terminal, DeepVacuum, that is essentially tweaking terminal inputs and SiteSucker all to no avail.

There is the added issue of the file in question sitting behind a Shibboleth university wall of authentication which probably makes getting the file no less complicated. Mhm.

Just to be clear, you want Getting Started with Adobe Presenter, or that is an example and you do not want that specific Flash file?

Good point, I'm looking to download another file, that is on my university portal. The "Getting Started with Adobe Presenter" looks similar/exhibits similar problems (from the perspective of somebody looking to download the file).

I figured I'd first try to download the "Getting Started" file and then go towards the second possible problem, that is:

The file I'm looking at sits behind a Shibboleth authentication system which might, or might not pose additional problems. I assumed that once my computer was authorized access to the location it wouldn't matter if activity switched to a different program.

I've been able to successfully download Presenter files from an Adobe Connect system on Windows XP using IE 7, by saving the webpage as a web archive (.mht) file. We could only do it once logged into Connect and while viewing the presentation, but it did work.
