Hi, i wonder if anyone can help, we have a 'knowledgebox' from pearson broadband installed in our school, the problem i have is :-
I would like to 'grab' some of the flash content, and save it so it can be viewed offline.
I have tried lots of website grabbers, but so far none have worked, despite each of the webpages on knowledgebox that have flash video/interactive content, opening and working in internet explorer.
I have asked their 'tech support' and all i have recieved is "perhaps we can make that a feature for the future" in other words - go away.
The machine is accesed by http://(ip address):9000, so i dont know if it is the port that is stopping the website grabbers from working?
Any info on this box would be helpful
firstly the 'knowledgebox' is a local device, kept in my 'cupboard'
the content i am trying to grab, is .swf, but i suspect some is .flv
As the content for your Knowledge box is already stored on a hard drive inside your school cache pilot type box, the content is already "offline" in regard to the internet, it's just moving around your internal network.
I imagine grabbing content to put onto disc or off site machines would be feasilbe by getting into the box content using Putty.
You may have copywrite and reverse engineering rules to worry about then though?
i can telnet to the box using putty, but none of the username/passwords i have will give me access.
i can get most of the movies/content from internet explorer files, but what i didnt understand was why i could not grab the web page i was looking at.
i suspect it is due to the port being 9000 , and the grab software not working with this.
just a shame i cant recreate the webpages offline, so they look the same,
still, i'm content with i.e files for now.
thanks for your input
