    Hi Everyone,

    So I've been trying to save some flash streams from the following website:

    http://www.aptn.ca/pages/fullepisodes/#

    Using "rtmpsuck" I was able to get some sample information like this:

    app: a500/d19?videoId=1350927726001&lineUpId=1343065338001&pubId=73033052001&playerId=88603541001&affiliateId=
    flashVer: LNX 10,3,181,14
    swfUrl: http://admin.brightcove.com/viewer/...ideoUI/BrightcovePlayer.swf?uid=1333590596586
    tcUrl: rtmp://brightcove-21.fcod.llnwd.net:1935/a500/d19?videoId=1350927726001&lineUpId=1343065338001&pubId=73033052001&playerId=88603541001&affiliateId=
    pageUrl: http://www.aptn.ca/pages/fullepisod...41001&bclid=1343065338001&bctid=1350927726001

    But then when I try to use "rtmpdump" I get this:

    rtmpdump -r "rtmp://brightcove-89.fcod.llnwd.net:1935/a500/d19?videoId=1350842724001&lineUpId=1343065338001&pubId=73033052001&playerId=88603541001&affiliateId=" -o black1.flv

    RTMPDump v2.3

    Any ideas?

    Nevermind folks. Seems like StreamTransport for Windows does the job very easily. So I'll just stick to that instead of all this rtmpdump mumbo jumbo. :)

    I occasionally use Replay Media Catcher. It has a bad GUI but does the job well usually. It's not free however...

    There are a bunch of plugins for firefox that do the job nicely. Even though I use chrome - I still use firefox when I need to capture a stream.

    Ah, what Firefox plugins specifically do you like to use? Are they as simple as navigating to your video, pushing play, then kicking your plugin to capture the URL and download the video?

    I like HiDownload. It watches your network activity in the background, catches everything that looks like a multimedia stream and queues it for downloading.

    On Linux there's youtube-dl (which also works w/ a couple of other sites), or simply doing 'mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile <video.flv> <video-url>'.

    Replay Media Catcher is excellent. You don't technically have to pay for it - I got it via one of those Trialpay offers. IIRC I signed up for a flash game site, ordered Bookworm Deluxe (used to play that a lot at work lol) and got it for free!
