    Is there any site/program out there that allows you to download a javascript embedded video? The ones that show javascript:eek: penMediaPlayer(insert link)

    I know there's sites for youtube video downloads, but can't seem to find any for the Javascript ones. The video I'm trying to download has a regular URL too that opens the video in Windows Media Player, but I don't see anyway of saving it. Help would be greatly appreciated

    I'm not sure it should matter if the video is embedded with HTML or Javascript.

    If you're using Firefox the DownThemAll plugin sounds like what you need. I don't know what you'd do if you're using IE.

    I downloaded the program, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to save the video. I opened the page that has the video embedded, and go to Tools, then DownThemAll, but no video gets saved.

    Oops, my bad, I meant the Video DownloadHelper Firefox plugin. Here's a convenient link https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006

    An icon will appear at the top of your browser when installed and identifies media content in a webpage when it's colored. The dropdown next to it will show all the downloadable content.

    Thanks for the link. Still having troubles though. For some reason even though there's only one video on the page, the DownloadHelper shows that there are 2 (sometimes 4). Also, the videos when downloaded are under 10KB, and don't play. Something about how the extension is different than the video.

    The only thing I can think of is if there's a way to save movies that open up in Windows Media Player, then there might be a way.
