Browser: Embedded Video Download

One of many ways, how to find the direct link to an online video…

Firefox

The Mozilla Firefox web browser enables users to show its cache content. Opening a brand new link to a web page, that contains a video file, which was a priori hidden and is dynamically loaded using (several) JavaScipt(s) and a Macromedia Flash player, generates new records into the browser’s cache.

By typing the following into its address field, the Firefox’s cache can be displayed:

about:cache?storage=disk

Considering, that the cache is completely clear when the browser starts, opening a brand new link generates a few new statements, that can be easily observed and the direct link to the video can be found.
