Yes, allow FLV files to be downloaded from any site in the Project Properties dialog.

I published the Project in the Video/Audio section. Please use Tools - Published Projects to access it. Once you add this project to OE, change its URL to the address of the video you want to load and download the Project.

There is a Download button. Once downloaded, MS IE will ask you to open or save, choose Open.

Can you try Flash & Media Capture application? It is better for Flash Video saving.

I tried to save this video. And it's work.
The Flash&Media cannot download files self, it can only to save files, what was downloaded by IE. Please switch on the Video AutoSave button and go to the url. The video file will saved after it will fully loaded into IE.

Oleg Chernavin 04/14/2007 07:33 am
Please try to search for a FLV viewer application. There is a number of them available.

I tried but the downloaded files from youtube can not be opened/played by several FLV viewer applications.

Oleg, would you mind to try downloading videos form youtube? And lif it workds, please let me know the settings and the specific application you use to view the videos. Thanks.
Oleg Chernavin 11/14/2007 09:42 am
Sorry for the late answer. I made some changes to the YouTube/Google video downloads code. I checked the way the files are open and I found that they work well if you browse with VLC video player.

Other players may work with some FLV files and refuse with others.
