Any known method for finding a Wistia video URL

Ability to download a wistia video is always changing and the Chrome extension I had doesn’t work on pages such as:

[discover.teachable.com]

However, if I can locate the actual URL of the Wistia video, then the downloaders will generally work.

I can Show Page Source, but I don’t know how to search for the Wistia video URL.

If anyone knows the trick these days, please pass it on.

Not sure if there's going to be a good way. This link brings up the video, at least for me at this moment. But not sure whether there's a good way to grab the download;

For videos of this sort, I usually use Firefox and the Video Download Helper plug-in ... it is usually able to download hard-to-access videos and was able to get the MP4 file in this case.

Hey, that works, PeterB! thanks for the suggestion. I tried using the Chrome versions of downloader, but none of them worked. The FireFox version has a weird interface which I couldn't figure out (too many options), but it worked. It downloaded the video in mp4 to a folder in my home folder of all places, but it worked! thanks again.
