Save flash (flv) files locally

This requires Safari & WGET

1. From the Safari menu select Window | activity
 This will display a list of current sites that are open.  In the window you want to capture the media file from start it playing.  In the list you'll see a .flv file.  It will probably be the biggest file size.

2. Copy the URL

3. Run a command prompt and find wget.exe


wget <url>/<file-name>
wget http://www.server.com/files/flash.flv
