Hi, this is probably a stupid question, but from the URL in URL Snooper 2, how can I get the movie (save it in my system).

Here is a (missing) try - does that work with you??.

I tired URL Snooper 2 with the BBC news site (link)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7631650.stm

URL Snooper returned this (link)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/pla...r/emp/2_6_5222/player.swf

However:
a) I cannot play it in the browser (BBC probably blocks it?)
b) how can I download the movie in my computer from this link

Thank you for the help & explanation

The problem I always have is finding something that will download the file that you want, maybe if you use one of the download managers and put that URL in and see what happens, I get just the blocked or unavailable message when i browse to it, and can download the blocked message as well lol

downloaded from that link without problems using free downloader 

that's a flash file so you'll need something that will play that format - Swiff Player is one such (note that this is not a recommendation, it's just the first one I came to...)

Thanks Target, that's exactly what I was asking for (link: FDM). I use KMPlayer myself.

Thanks
