How can I save a flash video?

A friend's son graduated from college last week.  They asked me to see about making a copy of the video from the service.

Here's the web page with the video:

http://www.emory.edu/commencement/webcast/index.html

Here's I think the flash code related to the video.  I tried saving the mp4, but it's only 73KB, I change the rtmp to http and that doesn't let you get the file.  Any advice?

<script src="http://realaudio.service.emory.edu/clients/jwplayer5.9/jwplayer.js" type="text/javascript" ></script>
<div id="mediaplayer" ></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  jwplayer('mediaplayer').setup({
    'id': 'playerID',
    'width': '520',
    'height': '316',
    'provider': 'rtmp',
    'streamer': 'rtmp://realaudio.service.emory.edu/EVENTS/COMMENCE/',
    'file': 'commence2012.mp4',
    'modes': [
        {type: 'flash', src: 'http://realaudio.service.emory.edu/clients/jwplayer5.4/player.swf'},
        {type: 'html5',
          config: {
           'file': 'http://realaudio.service.emory.edu/m3ugen/iPhone-src/EVENTS/COMMENCE/commence2012.mp4',
           'provider': 'video'}
        }
    ]
  });
</script>

thanks.  I did that and the only thing with .swf extension is player.swf and the type is opject, not embed like that page says.

I saved that file and it's under 100kb.

do you see this or something different when you do it?

Thanks, I did steps 1, 2, 3.
step 4, I have a grey button of downloadhelper, to the left of the address bar with the video page open and playing.  I click on the grey button and get a list of 'Downloader media sites'.

If I do step 3 to a youtube video, THEN the download helper icon is animated, in color and I can do the steps you mention. : (

Glad to know it worked. I was downloading few softwares like Orbit, rtmpdump, streamtransport etc. but Orbit and Streamtransport did not worked :(
The link you provided use rtmpdump.
I was too lazy to check rtmpdump first because it dont have a GUI and it needs to be executed from command prompt. I was really going to try it after some time.

Anyway it was challenging, but I was sure using some tools we could download it. The principle is simple, if its coming to our computer we can download it, but we need to use the correct method and the right tools.

I was checking the command.bat, these guys are really experts!!!
Just an update,

I tried Replay Media Catcher demo version and was able to download the video.

The downside is its not free.
