    Just right-click on the page and select "View source", then look for the .swf file and copy the path and d/l it ;)

    Seems that the file required net connection!
    Then I think there is no other method :(
    coz by any method u'll download the flash, it'll ask for the net connection whenever it'll run.

    DUKE's HOME MADE SIMPLE REMEDIES

    when you surf web pages with swf files. first these (swf) files are placed in your computer's temp internet files folder.

    use opera or something then open the cache folder of its.
    open the web page with swf. copy the swf from opera's cache folder.
    simple

    or make a batch file which says

    @copy "c:\program files\opera\<>\cache\*.swf" d:\akash\my_swf\


    and fire it from time to time

    If you use Maxthon, you can use FlashSave plugin for that.

    The main reason of this problem is. Flash Movie itself can embed other movies or just link. You can put instruction in Flash file to load another movie from url after reaching certain frame or after some user interaction.

    These files would not be downloaded to your cache as it is internally handled by the movie.

    If you really need the file then you might require to reverse engineer the flash file to see what links and movie it refer to. Sothink SWF Decompiler is one such product to convert .swf to .fla.

    If you are using mozilla firefox, open the page containing SWF file. Then click tools>page info>media There you will find your file and save it to hard disk. For internet explorer, a. Click Tools - Internet Options
    b. In the General Tab, click the Settings button available in the Temporary Internet Files group.
    c. Click View Files to open your Temporary Internet Files folder. Depending upon your IE settings, the Temp. folder can contain tens of thousands of files.
    d. Click View - Details. Now click View - Arrange Icons By - Internet Address. Depending upon the webpage, there could one or more Flash files (Shockwave Flash Object) under the Inernet Address.
    e. Once you find the right flash file, right-click and choose Copy. Then paste the swf file in any other directory. Be sure to
    keep the page and IE open to avoid purging of the cache file.

    For newbies, I suggest the following approaches:
    1. Get a download accelerator like Flashget and tell it to automatically download the shockwave extention (*.swf)
    2. Or download a free IE plug-in for saving flash files.

    What I said is, if the flash file requires Net connection to run, then there will be no benefit in d/l ing it thru any method!

    I hv checked it once, when I d/l ed a game flash file. But it didnt run coz it required net connection.
