Vimeo, Flickr video cheat

, posted: 26-May-2008 11:24

You've seen a cool video on Vimeo or Flickr and you want to download the flv but it's not visible in the source code for that page? If you have it, launch Safari and open the "Activities" window (Menu->Window->Activity). Then navigate to the relevant page (eg http://www.vimeo.com/993998 ). Click on the play button of the video you want to download. Scan the activity window until you see an item whose size is climbing in tandem with the video's progress bar. Click on the activity window source, (in this case http://bitcast.vimeo.com/vimeo/videos/63/12/36/63123664/63123664_2_5478469808.flv?e=1211761772&h=b2975f4d84389bcc1dc4a09212505d63 ), copy and paste into a new window and save as.
