    Flash "Embedded Video" - where the entire video is contained
    within the swf file is no problem, just use any SWF capture utility
    such as Flash Scout (costs money now - but was formerly called Flash
    Pilot and was free) or Sothink SWF Catcher

    BUT I cannot capture or save Flash linked Video !! There are tons of
    these out there and I am
    stumped !!! Here is an example - all the video clips on www.break.com
    - I love these kinds of clips and there are a lot of new sites that
    host them.

    The flash capture utilities will save the small swf file to
    your hard drive, but it is nothing more than a tiny 10 to 15k "stub"
    file that links to the embedded flash video. But then what? You can
    run the small swf file and it will open a window and then
    it will play the video inside the window via a link inside the swf
    file. But you have not captured the actua video to your hard drive.
    Any ideas?
