Default Downloading a video

I'm not too sure if I'm asking an illegal question against the site policy here but still I've been trying to download the video clips off this site http://www-tc.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/geno...a/sequence.swf for a while now but to no success.

I don't know if the videos are flash embedded or what? But I really need them for a research project......


Regards

Don't know how you are gonna download them, but you can always record them

you can use a download manager and retreive the flash file and then open it up in a web browser to view offline.

As long its not copyrighted then I think we can download the flash file.

Hmm..

I use Firefox with a script blocking add-on (called "no script"). When I clicked on the link, an object like thing came up. I right clicked on, chose "Save link as" and downloaded it normally. The size of the file is ~270kb and it worked fine with Media Player Classic.

Had that same thing with my noscript, you could also use flashgot and it will download the flash file as well.
