How to Download Flash Videos From Any Website


Recently I had a customer for our video submission service give us his website which had his flash video embedded into the website. He wanted us to submit his video to 40 video hosting sites. However, before uploading his video to the 40 websites we needed to first download the video. I did not know how to download flash videos from websites.

So I Googled “How to download flash videos.”

I found this website at the first position in the Google search which was for Flash Video Download Chrome Extension

I installed the plugin by clicking on “Add to Chrome.

Then I visited the website which contained the flash video and clicked on the video. Then I right clicked and clicked on “Switch to Flash.”

Then I clicked on the blue arrow at the top right as shown below.


Then I clicked the slightly larger blue button which appeared at the top right where I could download my video file.


Then I just saved the file to my hard drive and renamed it. Now I can use the video file of my customer to upload his video to 40+ video hosting sites.

After a career as a professional musician and band leader in the Miami South Florida Area I decided to see if I could make some money with this new internet thing. After years of trial and error I started to get the hang of it and now I am completely financially independent because of my various online businesses. The goal of this blog is to chronicle my continued marketing experiences. I focus on real examples of what works and what does not work. Google does not give us a recipe for getting our sites ranked. We have to use our own experiences to see what actually works rather than theory. I hope you enjoy the blog. Please let us know what you think in the comments area. We appreciate your feedback.
