This thread is an attempt to provide the simple tools you need to save or download YouTube and other Flash based streaming media. I searched around
for a while but didn't see anything about how to do this, so I figured I'd let people know; for those who haven't found out how to do it already.
My apologies if it's been posted before.
As I've been browsing forums and reading the variety of topics I've noticed hundreds that use YouTube (or other Flash based video media). Of course
this is nothing new, the advent of viable video streaming has greatly changed how people can present their information or add supporting media to
The problem is that while much of this media content is available in many sources, some of it is truly (or at least potentially truly) valuable
eye-witness evidence of a variety of topics. From the Paranormal to UFO's and ET's; or the variety of world changing events that have been captured
uncensored by private cameras.
In many of the topics I've read, several had links to video that were no longer available. Logically most of them could have been removed for
perfectly normal reasons. However, we wouldn't be who we were if we didn't at least suspect some of them were removed for reasons beyond normal.
It's for that reason that people should be saving every scrap of video, audio, or any other media they may find. You never know when it could
disappear. If nothing else, it adds to your own personal library of media, which is no bad thing.
Below are links to a cnet article on saving flash media, and several other links to different ways to save flash media.
