Thread: How can I download a video playing on this website? (DownloadHelper doesn't work)

    Default How can I download a video playing on this website? (DownloadHelper doesn't work)
    I was trying to download a couple videos from www.cardplayer.com/cptv. When I try to use the popular Firefox add-on "DownloadHelper", the icon doesn't activate giving me the option to download the video that is being played on the page. I assume DownloadHelper isnn't recognizing the video playing on the page for some reason.


    So far, I have tried:
    DownloadHelper (Firefox Add-on)
    RealPlayer
    Net Video Hunter (Firefox Add-on)
    Internet Download Manager (Trial version).

    Not sure if it is just me, but I can't seem to download the video playing on that site with any of these add-ons or peices of software. Is anyone else able to download video from www.cardplayer.com/cptv?


    Is there another (preferably free) way to download a video playing in that web page?


    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

    Thanks Zeal. I just want to be able to watch these videos on my phone while traveling. Is that really not allowed?

    These are free videos with paid advertising in the video so I would still be watching the videos with the ads still in them even if I was able to watch them on my phone.

    I briefly looked at the "Terms of Use" on the site and if I'm reading it right, it just says redistrubuting the video is prohibited. I'm not going to redistrubute it. I just want to be able to watch the videos myself.

    These videos are not in .flv format so that is why the typical add-ons that download video from sites like YouTube isn't working (from my non-technical opinion).

    Anyone have any other suggestions (assuming it isn't "bad" to discuss further).


    Thanks.

    @awesomeiPod,

    I figured this was an off-topic so I posted in the chit-chat forum. I'll gladly move it to a more appropriate forum. Which would you suggest?

    Oops. You actually posted it in the right section. Sorry about that.

    Yeah, I've tried a few of the Firefox add-ons (DownloadHelper and Net Video Hunter). Neither would work with this site because (I could be wrong) the videos on that site are not in .flv format.


    Do you know of any Firefox add-ons (or any other programs) that can download video from a web page that is not in .flv format?


    Thanks.

    Thanks awesomeipod, but Ant.com video downloader doesn't work with the video playing on that site either.

    Or am I just a retard and can't get any of these add-ons (or programs) to work on that site?

    Have you tried to download video from that site?

    Those videos use Flowplayer as well as Adobe Flash player. I'm not sure if there is any add-on for downloading stuff that uses Flowplayer.

    Maybe this might help. If you don't find what you need, then I don't know what to say...
