    I'm trying to capture streaming video clips from the BBC web site. I
    understand that this is in FLV format, but direct recording is
    blocked.

    I have tried WMRecorder from Applian.com - but this screws up my codec
    settings for playing normal video files - and doesn't work for me.

    I have tried HiDownload (and FLVRecorder) from Streamingstar.com - but
    this doesn't work for me either - and - WARNING - Norton reports that
    there is a virus in the FLVRecorder.exe file.

    And I have tried VLC - but the settings required are so complex, and
    the latest version seems not to have a streaming video capture
    feature.

    Please someone advise me?

    Many thanks - Chris Brady.

    ==========================================
    If you download and install the Mozilla Firefox Browser
    and the Downloadhelper add-on you will be able to
    download video from many sites. Maybe it will work
    on the site you are referring to.

    (FWIW...it's always a good idea to create a System
    Restore point before installing software or updates)

    Mozilla Firefox
    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

    Video DownloadHelper
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3006

    Once installed...launch Firefox and go to a site with video /
    start the video / go to...Tools / Downloadhelper / Media /
    Select the media file / Download...

    Download Helper Tutorial Videos

    Good luck...

    You might look at this web page for answers.

    Also,as far as capturing audio/video,download the WM encoder,plus its
    utilities.
