How do I extract a video stream URL from a website?

Khurram Shehzad May 1, 2013

I am using a website for streaming TV but it has many annoying ad so to avoid them I would like to get the direct URL for the TV stream so that I can see it individually in-browser. Do you know how I can extract the URL of the video from that website? It is playing in Flash player.

    There is only 1 solution i know of:

    Download adblock plus which is an chrome extension which will block every ad on the video. I use it for youtube and it blocks all annoying ads which come on the video.

    Try Media Sniffer.It works in a way that a streaming video would get store locally on cache.So,the data is extracted from cache and is made available to the user -

    Capture & Save Any Type Of Streaming Content Using Media Sniffer [Windows]

    As mentioned above by Paul Pruitt you need adblockers for annoying popup because this is how streaming free video is done.

    You can try VideoRipper from . I think sometime in October, 2012, MakeUseOf ran an article on it. Just do a search by Videoripper in the makeuseof search box.

    Also found a few forum discussion, which may be helpful.

    Hmm...Not sure, but use Chrome and try adding the AdBLock extension: It is supposed to work on YouTube and Hulu among many others.

      Also in Chrome maybe try to right click on the video and choose "Inspect Element" to see if it reveals the direct video URL. I don't think it does, because they are probably hidden within the compile Flash files. In that case you could download the flash files and process them through a Flash Decompiler.
