    How can I rip the video from this page?

    Two of our students are in a video on this page
    FILMCLUB - Close Encounters Details
    and I have been asked to display it on our XIBO display.
    The problem I have is I can't see how I can rip the video from the site. I can't embed the site either as it needs clicking to start!

    Can anyone suggest a way round this?

    Thanks

    Cheat!

    Find video link in source, aka assets/videos/national-movie-awards-filmclub-interviews.flv
    add link to URL aka http://www.filmclub.org/assets/video...interviews.flv
    click download,
    run around screaming as "bad stuff downloads" :P


    Should work,

    Steve

    Thanks

    But but... It is magic!

    But yeah, surprised it was so simple, as normally they block the direct links, but seems this was nice (And yes, Copyright etc is issue, but then they're not exactly stopping you downloading, you're not bypassing anything)

    Keep getting interupted but yeah I just used the source and found the following

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function () {     var player_featured_167 = flowplayer(         "player-featured-167",         "/library/flowplayer/flowplayer.commercial-3.2.7.swf",          {             key: '#$cf7c9b2bcd5a7c9dd6e',             clip: {                 autoPlay: true,                 onStart: function(clip) {                     getTracker()._trackEvent("Videos", "Play", clip.url);                 },                 onPause: function(clip) {                     getTracker()._trackEvent("Videos", "Pause", clip.url, parseInt(this.getTime()));                 },                 onStop: function(clip) {                     getTracker()._trackEvent("Videos", "Stop", clip.url, parseInt(this.getTime()));                 },                 onFinish: function(clip) {                     getTracker()._trackEvent("Videos", "Finish", clip.url);                 }             },             content: {                 display: 'none'             },             plugins: {                 controls: {                     stop: true                 }             },             playlist: [                 '/assets/videos/national-movie-awards-filmclub-interviews.flv'             ]          }     );  }); </script>
    And literally just post fixed the playlist path to the website url

    So

    htt p : / /w w w .filmclub.org/ AND assets/videos/national-movie-awards-filmclub-interviews.flv


    Gives you

    htt p : / /w w w .filmclub.org/assets/videos/national-movie-awards-filmclub-interviews.flv

    Or the Developer Tools in Chrome, refresh page, and check the requests in the Network tab. Or use Firebug in Firefox.

    Thanks everybody. Just after I asked we learned that we are being ofsteded on Thurs and Fri so it actually became more of a priority as the Head wanted that very prominent as people walk in to the school.

    All sorted now and playing through XIBO.

    Thanks all.
