Save the Last Flash Movie You Watched [Linux Tip]

10 Apr/09

Linux only: Reader Blake writes in with his method for quickly making a copy of the last flash video you watched in your browser. Whenever you watch a flash video in your browser, the entire video is buffered to your hard drive, and stored in a temporary folder. You can then make a copy of the flash video by browsing through your temp folder manually, but Blake has automated this with a shell script that prompts you for a friendly name, and then automatically saves the video to your ~/Videos folder. To re-create this for yourself, create a new shell script and paste in the following: #!/bin/bash name=$(/usr/bin/zenity –entry –title=”Name your Video” –height=100 –width=300 –text=”Please name your video “) cp /tmp/Fla* ~/Videos/”$name” Then you’ll need to set the script as executable with the chmod command, adjusting for the name of your script: sudo chmod 755 Once you’ve completed these steps, just create a new launcher for your Gnome panel—and clicking it should display the dialog in the screenshot. Great job, Blake! Update: You should make sure that the video is 100% loaded in your browser before attempting to make a copy, and this only works for a single video at a time. If you won’t use this enough to bother with a script, you can go through the steps manually when necessary—or you can easily save videos using previously mentioned KeepVid or VidDownloader .
