Flash Video Downloader is an application which allows you to easily batch download and save streaming flash videos from just about any website with streaming flash videos as long as the videos are set to autoplay (that is, they start playing when the page loads). Examples of sites are youtube.com, video.google.com, and dailymotion.com, but just about any website will work. Instead of sifting through the html code of the webpage to find the flash video, Flash Video Downloader 2 actually checks where the video is coming from and download it, which will ensure that it will still work even if the page has changed. It can even download more...

What's New

Version 2.1.3:
  • Restored normal behavior to the close button in the main window; it will now hide the window when clicked
  • Corrected website URL listed in the About box to the new website URL
  • No longer prints out the flash video's actual URL to the console (this was accidently left in the program)
  • Updated Help Book

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Since leaving the last comment I have found two good FireFox plug-ins that work very well for downloading DailyMotion mp4 files. - UnPlug and DownThemAll. DownThemAll looks like it is by far the better of the two.

I have been using this to download DailyMotion videos for several weeks with no problem. Recently it was unable to find the requested videos with family filter on or off but can download YouTube videos. What happened? Did DailyMotion do something to block downloads or is it a new "feature" of Flash Video Downloader? Hopefully there will be a fix soon.

I would rate it a five except for this glitch.

>Hopefully there will be a fix soon.

I doubt there will be an update as this software was released 2009 and there has been no activity on the dev's website. For me, this has become abandonware.

I installed this on a friends Macbook pro thinking it was FVD Downloader that I use with Windows. It dosn't work and won't go away. It doesn't appear in the Applications listing and I can't figure out how to remove addons to Safari (if that's what it is). How do I remove Flash Video Downloader 2?
