  1. Not sure if this is a video question but NTL.
    I was wondering the best way to capture Shock Wave Flash videos from websites, Some websites offer an .exe version of the flash but most dont.

    I was wondering how I could capture the embedded SWF videos and save them to my computer maybe as an .exe

    Check the web page source for swf file address and download it directly, I think that's the easiest way.

    ...and the best way to do that would be to right click on the page, go up to 'view source', and then search 'swf'.

    no, it oculd be simply to have it on your HD - thing is most flash work - when exported u can prevent it from being imported and edited.

    It would be like joe Cartoon - u simply want to save em - so u don't got to load em everytime.

    There are programs like teleport pro - web spiders - that u tell to get files from url's and it will.
