That site is using an AJAX script to validate and then play the video.  The true location of the file is hidden in the AJAX and it would be rather hard to pull it out.  

You could use one of the video downloader plugins for Firefox to grab it.

I already tried a firefox flash grabber and it was unable to find the flash video, this is why I am asking for help.

Does anyone know who to decrypt the AJAX script to identify the true location of the FLV file?

At this point it would be cracking that site to do it.  Sorry, but the Terms of Use prevents us from circumventing someone else's security.  If they just put the .flv file in a folder that we could easily see from code, different story.

OK, I understand.  If retrieving the flash video file isn't possible then I understand.  I don't want anyone doing anything illegal or anything against the terms of use policy.   Thanks anyway though..
