How Do You Capture A Video From JW Player?

I have seen a lot of great video trainings which are free on the internet. Problem is, I don't know how to save them onto my computer and use them in the future. How can I save and capture JW videos onto my computer?

    Sometimes you can right-click on a video and download it. Whether
    this works depends on how the video hosting is set up. If you
    didn't pay for access to the video, I wouldn't expect the host to
    make it easy for you to suck up their bandwidth downloading
    the files.

    Go with "DownloadHelper". It's a very good firefox plugin and the best tool I've found till date to download the streaming videos.

    I did search all over google and yahoo. I came up with nothing, but I did follow the post listed below. Which was very helpful. As of right now you cannot download jw player stuff in internet explore. Good news is that in firefox the same webpage might load different and you can download it in real player. I hope this help anyone out. I did search around for about 2 hrs.

    I have done some Cam-Studio captures that worked... others didn't get the audio.

    Use the selected region method, not the full screen capture and you will get just the window when you size it just right.

    Free to try anyway...

    That is very easy if you use Firefox.
    1- Just go to the page that contains the video.
    2- Right click anywhere on the page.
    3- click on "view page info"
    4- Click on "Media"
    5- Inside the scroll down box, find and select the swf file you want.
    6- Click on "save as".
    Done.

    That works fine - However, what if the swf file is only 50kb and has the name "mediaplayer.swf" and won't play anything?:rolleyes:

    Capture any vid with SnapzProx - Snapz Pro X | Ambrosia Software, Inc. - creates a Quicktime file.

    Also good for stills. Costs $69. I use it just about every day and have done for 5 years.

    I found a pretty easy way. Open the web page with the video you want to download, disconnect your computer from the internet, hit the JW Player play button, and the web address for the video will appear in the player window with a message that the web address can't be found. Type the web address of the video in your browser address bar, reconnect your computer to the internet and hit enter to go to the web address and you should be able to download the video you want. I've downloaded many mp4 videos this way.

    RealPlayer downloader is also very easy to use and you might already have it installed without knowing.

    JW FLV Player can show HTTP, HTTPS and RTMP flash videos. While you may use freeware Ask & Record Toolbar to save HTTP and HTTPS streams, RTMP ones are more difficult to capture/record/download/save.

    Download helper is for sure the best but for some reason on some videos it doesn't work and JW may be or may not be one of those...

    Whenever it doesn't work I use Camtasia to record the screen and that always works

    This thread is several months old, but I think some folks
    might be interested in this so I'll post....

    @Moneyerr:

    As far as I know, RTMP (used by Hulu and others) is impossible to capture, short of using Camtasia or equivalent to make a movie of your screen.

    Do you know of a way to capture RTMP?

    This may or may not be helpful but I use HiJack to grab the Audio. I know it is not the Movie however, I travel a lot and walking around in the airport you get a lot of "Air time" to yourself.

    I always keep a lot of audios on hand. I even HiJack Video sales pages to study them in the airport or on the plane, etc.

    It's another idea anyway.
