Downloading video

So far I haven`t ever succeeded in downloading streaming video.

I downloaded the following link with level=0

http://www.robtv.com/shows/past_archive.tv?day=thur

I want to download the video of Ron Meisels talking about technical analysis.

Not sure where to start. The link to the video in question may be located at

12:30 PM ET
Market Call with Jim O`Connell
Technical analysis
Ron Meisels, contributor, www.na-marketletter.com

in the given cited page.

The closest thing to a link is

javascript:openRobtvVideoPlayer(``,`robtv0726.20051201.00034000-00034890-clip1`,`http://www.robtv.com`,``);


which refers to some javascript that seems to generate a URL with the following code:

function openRobtvVideoPlayer ( noad, vidId, site_name,special_template) {
var URL = getRobtvVideoUrlString(vidId, noad,site_name,special_template);
playRobtvVideo( URL ,noad );
}

function getRobtvVideoUrlString(vidId, noad,site_name,special_template){
var URL = site_name+`../servlet/htmltemplate/!robvideo/`+vidId+`../`+((getRobtvVideoPref()==`220asf`)?`h`:`l`)+`/`+getRobtvVideoPref()+`/`+noad+`/`+special_template+`/`;
return URL;
}

which may be found in player.js

It doesn`t seem that my detective work has been helping, so I say HELP.

If anyone can explain what I should do, I would appreciate an answer. (They will be deleting the video some time on Wednesday night as they only maintain archives for one week. )

One easy way is to right-click inside the popup window with the video, select Properties and copy the popup page address, like:

http://www.robtv.com/servlet/HTMLTemplate/!robVideo/robtv0726.20051201.00034000-00034863-clip1/h/220asf///

Paste it to Offline Explorer, set Level to 1 and allow downloading from all servers and directories. Start downloading it.
