How to Download and Save Flash videos

By Emily Watson, Thursday, May 03, 2018

Though there are various video file formats swirling around the web, Flash video (FLV) is the mainstream. While providing high levels of compression without a substantial loss of quality degradation, FLV files usually have a smaller file size than similar offerings like MP4 and WMV. That's why it is warmly welcomed by website streaming.

The overwhelming popularity of FLV has also triggered a boom in downloading Flash videos. However, you can't simply click on a Flash video and expect to download it through your browser.
