Flash movies are becoming more prevalent on the Internet allowing users to play media files, movies, cartoons and presentations while looking at a website. Often times people want to save these presentations for later viewing or viewing offline. People often think this is a complex procedure but in reality downloading and saving flash movies is quite simple and can be done with minimum installation of new software. Below are a few of the options available if you wish to download flash movies to your computer for offline viewing.
In Mozilla FireFox
When browsing in Mozilla Firefox there are a few options to users that are wanting to download flash video files to their computer. One of the best options that is known to work with many of the major flash video websites including:
various adult entertainment websites
The option I’m talking about is simply adding the Download Flash and Video plugin for Mozilla Firefox. With this tool Downloading flash video is as simple as a single click. You can also download flash games with this tool as well from many of the various flash game websites. In the Mozilla Firefox extensions website the Download Flash and Video plug in gets four starts with one hundred and seventeen reviews.
Downloading flash movies is very simple in Google’s Chrome Browser as well. The leading extension for Chrome is Get Flash offered by Lex1. The extension comes in with 3.78 starts after one hundred eight votes. It has been downloaded 85,280 times and is the leading way of getting videos embedded into websites with Flash off websites and on to your computer’s hard drive for later viewing.
Another better option that is coming out in the newer builds for Google’s Chrome operating system version 4 and higher that is set to be released soon is the Flash Video Downloader. This plugin currently has nearly four starts with four hundred twenty nine votes for it. However this extension does not currently work in production versions of Google Chrome, however if your feeling risky you can download the developer build of Google Chrome 4.0 or higher.
Legal Mumbo Jumbo
I have to make it clear however that downloading videos may violate people’s copyright. Downloading videos and posting them on other sites is a clear violation of copyright and will get in to a lot of trouble with copyright holders. If you need further guidance on what you can and can not do (or even if you can download flash videos from websites) please ask an intellectual property attorney. Downloading videos from YouTube is a violation of their terms of service that you agreed too.
