Downloading embedded .swf file from a web page

I would like to download the embedded .swf file and save it locally from this webpage.

The url of the embedded .swf file is

When I type this url in firefox and try to save using File-->Save Page As, I just get .swf file which is 185KB large. This is obviously not right, as the .swf video is nearly 81 minutes long, and should be much larger. Also, it doesn't open in Macromedia Flash Player at all.

I am running Firefox 3.5 on Apple OSX 10.5., But also have access to IE and Firefox on Win XP, if that makes it easier to download the actual 81 minutes swf video.

Thank you for your help.

I just downloaded it using the flashgot plugin for firefox.  It downloaded it as a flv file not swf.

Are you sure that is the correct file?  I just downloaded it and it is also 185 KB

I made an HTML file (see below) then right clicked the link and used the save as feature...

<a href="">RIGHT CLICK AND SAVE AS</a>

Open in new window

I think that's the correct file. I got the url by viewing the source of the actual html page:

Also when I just copy and paste the url of the file itself in the browser, it does play, and shows full 81 minutes of video.

Yeah but what your downloading is the controller that loads the file.  Hmmm....

Fantastic! Many thanks, I just did the same. Didn't know that the controller file downloads the actual file.
