Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone would know how to
download some of the VSLs we see around
on Clickbank.

I'd like to keep a swipe file.

    One way would be to view the source code and then look for an embed code + video file extension (.mp4, .flv, etc.)

      Literally all of them are on youtube. Find them, then use one of the bazillion youtube vid rippers to download them.

        There will be times when the source code doesn't have the file name in it OR the video is not on You Tube.

        When that occurs, try this:

        Using Firefox, from the menu click File + Save Page As. When the dialog box pops up, make sure "Save as type" is set to "Web Page, complete". After the download is complete, look in the folder that was created. Sometimes (but not always) the MP4 file will be in it.

        Alex

        Maybe I'm unlucky but every VSL I've put up on YouTube for my products, have all be pulled down by them.

        YT don't like sales pitch videos.

          Nah, you're probably just doing it wrong.

          Not only can you use youtube hosted solutions to host your own vsls, but copies of literally all the top cb vsls can be easily found on youtube fairly easily with a little bit of sorting.

    Google is trying to outfox the rippers out there, so the ones that used to work don't work so much any more (looking at you, DownloadHelper...used to be great...sigh). Video Downloader extension for Chrome is still working for the time being.

    So, you can try your luck with rippers, but screen capture software can never be foiled. Try ScreenFlow (Mac, $), CamTasia (Mac, PC, $), CamStudio (PC, free...need to use something like VLC for playback or conversion), Jing (PC, Mac, free but time limited)...even some solutions for iOS if you have enough storage and use an app like Explain Everything (only records from extermal iPad/iPhone mic, but hey...).

    But, my number one suggestion is just watch the thing and take a few notes. The VSL is just a sales letter...the core principles haven't changed in about 100 years. Better yet, get a copy of Scientific Advertising by Hopkins.

    I use software/add-on Flash Video Downloader. But I think only works for firefox.

    So far I've managed to grab all VSL that I need.
