    Post Get .flv link of embedded video

    Hi all,

    is it in any way possible via VB/ to get the link of the actual file behind an embedded video?

    For example, I have a code that will find in th source code the embed video link such as: but I want also to get teh actual video's link automatuically. For the above mentionnned video, the actual file link is

    Of course, since this is flash and nothing comes up in the source code of the websites to give you the actual link of teh video, it is impossible for me to understand how to get this done. How do the firefox extensions such as VideoDownloader get these links?

    Hello! An interesting question, but unfortunately I think discussion of this topic is not permitted by the Acceptable Use Policy of the forum. While you could use that for legitimate purposes, it would be easy to adapt it to facilitate copyright infringement. I'd prefer not to expose the forum owners to any sort of legal liability, so - on the side of caution - think it best this thread be closed.

    However, please feel free to stick around and discuss other issues!

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or the site administrator.
