Many of the videos that you encounter on websites and online streaming platforms still consist of Flash videos, and at one point it was essentially the most popular format for online video streaming. As you probably know however, in the majority of cases it isn’t possible to download or save Flash videos directly so that you can watch them later on or transfer them to other devices.
If you really want to save a Flash video off a website, what you will need to do is use Movavi Screen Capture to record it from your screen and then save it onto your hard drive. At first that may sound complicated, but nothing could be further from the truth as it will actually only take a few simple steps:
- Launch Movavi Screen Capture and select ‘Record screen’ in the menu.
- Draw the recording frame over the Flash video that you want to capture and adjust it so that its borders properly encompass the video.
- Check that the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted green and click it once otherwise.
- Click ‘REC’ to start the recording after 5 seconds and play the Flash video at the same time.
- Click ‘Stop’ when you want to stop the recording and then ‘Save as’ to save it.
By following those steps you can easily use Movavi Screen Capture as a Flash video downloader – or to download other variants of online video streams too. Essentially you will be able to save any video content that you want from your screen, irrespective of its format, and if you want you can even set up a timer to automatically stop the recording so that you don’t have to sit and wait to click ‘Stop’.
Although setting up the basic parameters to capture Flash videos using Movavi Screen Capture were highlighted above, that is by no means all it can do. Be sure to spend a couple of minutes perusing its features as you will see that they will let you fully control other recording parameters such as the frame rate, audio levels, and so on. More importantly you will even be able to capture keyboard and mouse actions more effectively by highlighting the mouse cursor, setting a more audible ‘click’ sound, and displaying any keys that are pressed on screen.
All said and done the best way to fully understand just how easy it is to download and save Flash videos with Movavi Screen Capture is to give it a try for yourself. Use it to save a Flash video from a website, and you’ll be able to experience firsthand how user-friendly, intuitive, and downright simple it is.
