In this first entry I want to mention a neat Firefox extension that enables you to download and save flash video that you come across while surfing the net. It’s called Download Helper. You can find it at: downloadhelper.net After installing the extension and restarting Firefox you’ll notice a symbol on the top of you’re open windows. When it detects video that can be downloaded it begins to spin. By clicking the arrow you can choose to save the file as is or rename for easy locating later.
Below is a list of apps I like to use if you wish to convert and view the .flv files.
iSquint.com (conversion app for Mac)
wimpyplayer.com (a flv player for Mac)
anyvideoconverter.com (a conversion app for Windows)FLVplayer.com (a flv player for Windows)
All of these apps are free.
Here are a few of the sites I like to visit that uses flash video.
