Saving swf content from the internet and then playing it in Windows
Media player is a two step process.
1) Retrieving the swf from your internet temporary files folder and
copying it to a more permanent place. The location of the Internet
Temporary File folder depends on the browser used. If you're using
Internet explorer follow the short instructions here on how to access
How to find and view Temporary Internet Files in Internet Explorer
If you're using another browser such as Firefox or Mozilla, please
post a clarification request with which browser you're using and I'll
be sure to help.
2)Next, Use software to convert the swf to a format playable in
Windows Media Player. I've found 2 pieces of shareware which do that,
Magic Swf2Avi (shareware)
"Magic Swf2Avi is a powerful utility that uniquely supports to convert
Macromedia Flash SWF to AVI video file. With Magic Swf2Avi, an AVI
