Do You Guys Know How To Download Videos From Metacafe ?


Recommended Posts

I do it using wireshark to find the video files url when visiting the video page. Usually the videos will be either .flv or .mp4 and use a .swf flash player to embed the two video types. There are tools that automate the process, or you could write one yourself, but I just use wireshark.

One of the problems you may run into though, is if they use rtsp or rtmp to play the videos, which can't be downloaded directly from the url, and would need a tool to stream it to disk while watching in real time.
