Yeah. I used Downie. It gives me a URL...or pieces of one, but putting them into a browser just dumps you out on the top link.

thanks guys. client just wants a link to place in an email, but looks near impossible.

I can drop it into my Vimeo, but not really ideal.

Here are the direct video links (found them in the HTML page source after a bit of manipulation in BBEdit to make them easier to find):

"Mobile": [d294achcvvsx41.cloudfront.net]
720p: [d294achcvvsx41.cloudfront.net]
1080p: [d294achcvvsx41.cloudfront.net]

I rooted around in the code in FF, but my code skills are next to zero.

Yea, all the URL's for the JPGs and videos were on like one line, which made reading it practically impossible. I replaced all the "url" text with a return, so that each URL appeared on its own line (more or less), then just scrolled down until I saw something that looked like a video (.mp4 instead of .jpg).

Good to know, some thing I can try next time.

One can also search for the filetype extension (like .mp4) to help find what you want.

True, but you don't necessarily know what you are looking for at the beginning. For instance, if it had been a Vimeo or YouTube video, there wouldn't have been a .mp4 extension to find (of course, it probably would have been easier to download in the first place, and the player controls would likely give a hint to search for one of those names instead).

Yes to both of those things. tried the "mp4" and "video" search in the code, but like you said, they seem to all run together in one long line. I don't do code, so wouldn't really know where to start with it.
