13 depending on how it's done, you could just view the source and see if
14 there are any links in there to the real video. Then you can download
15 that with wget or something.
17 Sometimes websites do their best to obscure the actual video link behind
18 javascript and all sorts of balony, so that you can't do this - but I
19 doubt this is the case here.
21 You probably don't want to give away the site, but if you get stuck post
22 some of the source that you think might be relevant, and we can go from
23 there.
