hi there.

try to use firefox and use the downloadhelper plugin.

open the site and use the downloadhelper, surely you will be able to download the video. in fact i did download the video you wanted to.

here are the links for firefox installer:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html

for the downloadhelper firefox plugin:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006

you can use the same on other video,music streaming sites.

enjoy!!

download the actual file from that site by entering the URL:

http://wordpress-tutorials.ithemes.com/basics/wp25overview/wp25overview_controller.swf

and download the FLV Player from http://applian.com/flvplayer/ to play back the file.

if you want to convert the .swf file to other formats like .avi, .mov etc once downloaded use Media Converter available from: http://www.mediaconverter.org/index.php?s=c&show=downloads

this video is not being downloaded, don't know why. the downloadhelper icon gets disabled in the toolbar above and sometimes gets enabled.

hi,

i was able to DL the site, and it has 9.8 MB size file. this actually depends on the speed of your internet.
try to reload the site, and while the downloadhelper icon animates, try to "catch" it. the downloadhelper becomes idle if the loading of the video takes longer than expected.
