parsing "shadowbox" and retrieving mp4 video

It seems OE pro isn't capable of parsing the .js natively to grab streaming mp4 video, is this so, or am I missing something?

The site I'm attempting to mirror is using the shadowbox js/css front-end ( ), and is hosting via

Can you please tell me the URL of the page that hosts video using this front-end? I will see how it is linked there and what can be done.

Thank you!

Afraid this is a pay website and the streaming content it then plays is dynamic, that api hides what it actually is streaming (shows as "javascript:void(0);" for the link to start the player and streaming video). I can use various streaming download extensions to capture it once it starts, but I was of course hoping this would actually be able to parse it.

I see. I studied the API on this site and examples used video URLs in plain text in the scripts. This kind of linking should be easily downloaded by Offline Explorer.

Perhaps, this site has more complex system than these examples.
