The other day I tried 2 different Firefox extensions that are supposed to be able to save live video as a file on my windows PC.
I first tried "Video downloader" extension. It didn't work, so I tried another extension called "Video pirate" (Yes, video pirate was/is available on the Firefox extensions page).
Neither one of these worked.
I was trying to download the video of "Poker Superstars III" at NBC Sports, so I could play it back on my Zaurus later.
The video player in use at above site is Adobe Flash Player 9
When I had the above 2 video download extensions installed in my Firefox browser, the videos would no longer play on the site.
Instead, I would get one of the following 2 errors.
1. Video not available, please select another video
2. Error connecting to server.
I know these videos were available, because I had just watched part of them a few minutes before installing these extensions.
I tried, and tried to view any of the videos and decided the extensions were causing my problems with the site.
Is there any way to "save" these videos to the hard drive, so I can view them later on my Zaurus?
I had to uninstall both extensions and I also rebooted my Windows box. The videos still would not play on the site after this.
So, I waited about an hour, then went back to the NBC site, and now the videos play fine.
Does having these type of extensions just installed prevent videos from playing on a site such as NBC Sports?
