How to Download Flash Video from almost any Website

Of may sites I visited of Video streaming and watching videos online doesn’t always allow downloading. For YouTube, there are many sophisticated option available to download Youtube videos in various formats but not applicable for any site.

Here I share plugins for Popular Modern Web Browsers namely Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer too which can download almost any Video or Flash Videos (FLV) from any website easily.

Flash Video Downloader Plugin

Tested out may but this one stands out from all of them offering solution to download flash videos from any website. With just a click away sits as an icon besides address bar in case of Google Chrome.

How to Download FLV Video from any site

Just click on the Download icon which appears after installing addon on browser and box opens. Press “Get Download URL” button to start downloading.

It acts different for different sites. For example, on Youtube, you will be given options about quality of video whether FLV or MP4. Whereas on other sites, it redirects to FlashVideoDownloader site where download link is generated and you can Right click > Save as to download the video.

In my tests, FVD worked out to be fine with almost all sites like Facebook, CollegeHumor, DailyMotion, Veoh, Vimeo and others. It somehow extracts the Video Media File link on the webpage and the same you can use to download.

Flash Video Downloader Browser Plugin supports all Web Browsers namely Internet Explorer, Opera, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

I found it most versatile addon and one-stop solution for capturing embedded Videos from any site with just a click.
