    View the source, and find the .swf file. A browser like Opera has a
    download feature where you can download a file, and putting that swf
    file will download it.

    What if the Shockwave file relies on streaming content and assumes it
    must connect with a source to stream that content to the local host? It
    would still try going back to the source since it isn't local content.
    They may not want users trying to steal their content.

    Read
    http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/flash/articles/flv_download.html,
    page 4, Pros and Cons, where it says, "Because the streamed media is not
    saved to the client's cache, users cannot rifle through their temporary
    Internet files folder to get the video or MP3 file."

    Tough break, Kenny. You don't get to steal their content, alter it,
    resend it, or even keep a local copy of it.

  4. Download a program called getbot
    Run getbot
    Right click on the page and select view source.
    Search the text for 'embed' without the quotes
    Copy the obvious url and getbot will download it for you.
    Job done.

    If you can get hold of the full Macromedia Flash program (not just the
    plug-in), then that swf would open in a standalone Flash player, and
    you would just go Control - Play.

    Better still, you can make a Flash projector file from that window that
    will play on any machine that does not have Flash. The file's around
    800k bigger, but its a handy feature.

    You can download a the projector version of that MJ movie here

    Using Firefox you can click Tools, Page Info, Media tab, then Save the item
    that you want. Works for most situations.
