Here’s a simple way to download rtmp video (if the situation is not too complicated), kudos Jesse:
- Download rtmpdump (hosted on mplayer.hu)
- Get the link to the video: usually it is something like http://some.com/video/play.html?file=some/video/video.mp4
- Browse the source the URL above to get the URL for the flash player (e.g.) “http://some.com/flash/player.swf“, as well as a URL (URI?) beginning with rtmp (e.g.) “rtmp://some.com/vod“.
- Fire up the rtmpdump:
./rtmpdump -s “http://some.com/flash/player.swf" -r “rtmp://some.com/vod" -y mp4:some/video/video.mp4 -o downloadedvideo.flv
- Wait for your download to finish, and enjoy.
