How to download flash from a web site

You can download flash videos from a website either with dedicated tools for that purpose or by going into the source code and tracking the path allowing you to then manually download the flash file e.g.
Obviously the latter requires a bit more technical experience. And even if you have that, it can still be a time consuming job, as many flash files are often encapsulated in all kind of codings.

A good place to start probably is wikiHow: http://www.wikihow.com/Save-Flash-Animation-from-Website .
In terms of the dedicated tools I've personally good experiences with Replay Media Catcher - amongst others I've tried are Fast Video Download, a Firefox plugin and Flash Saver (http://www.flash-screen.com/flashsaver/).

On the coding side: you'll find a very good description and approach with Firefox, free but a bit more technical, on following website: http://geeklad.com/download-flash-video-from-any-website

ps: Regarding Fast Video Download: although it's a great tool, you might run into the problem of dialog boxes starting to open extremely slow: http://support.mozilla.com/nl/forum/1/623540

Photoshop CS4 removed contactsheet and other plugins

One of things on my todo list is the tryout of the new Adobe CS4 programs, especially Dreamweaver and Photoshop.

Trying out Photoshop first, I soon discovered that the Contactsheet plugin, amongst others, have been removed in the new version CS4. For some plugins I understand as there seems to be better functionality in the new version, but I couldn't find anything yet replacing the Contactsheet plugin. I know it's not ideal (the simple but great functionality on the matter in Paintshop Pro could be of inspiration), but I like it and so was really wondering immediately is there was a 'workaround'.

Yes of course, googling it didn't take long: you can download them here at the Adobe site.

And I found following installation instructions at The Luminous Landscape Forum.

  1. From the Photoshop CS4 install disc, drop the //#language#/Goodies/Optional Plug- Ins/Automate/ContactSheetII plug-in into the //Adobe Photoshop CS4/Plug-ins/Automate folder (this is for both Contact Sheet and Picture Package).
  2. From the Photoshop CS4 install disc, drop the //#language#/Goodies/Presets/Layouts folder into the //Adobe Photoshop CS4/Presets folder and restart Photoshop.
  3. Optional: To add this legacy functionality back into Bridge (as a menu item):
    From the Photoshop CS4 install disc, drop the //#language#/Goodies/Optional plugins/ Bridge Startup Scripts/photoshop_contact_sheet_ii folder and the photoshop_contact_sheet_ii.jsx file into following locations and then restart Bridge.
    • Macintosh: //Library/Application Support/Adobe/Startup Scripts CS4/Adobe Photoshop/
    • Windows XP: //Program Files/Common Files/Adobe/Startup Scripts CS4/Adobe Photoshop/
    • Windows Vista: //Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Adobe/Startup Scripts CS4/Adobe Photoshop/
