Video Capture

Video Capture

I need to be able to capture a video segment from a local news Web site.  Though they use flash, the video seems impervious to any video capture software I try to use (such as those made to capture FLV from You Tube and other video sites).  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Video Capture

Fraps is a freeware capture program. But i believe this one only captures whole screens (what you see).
With a program called snag-it you can select a part of the screen you want to record.
But this program has pretty poor video quality.

good luck

RE: Video Capture

Thanks, Silverblade for the suggestion.  That looks like it would do the trick, if only I could get it to work.  Tried on two different computers, and it does nothing at all when I press the hot key.  I installed it with the DirectX version it says it requires.

RE: Video Capture

I've tried i myself now. Never used this program outside a game. But it look like it detects somehow that there isn't a game running and so it doesn't respond.

Weird :s i don't know why but it does?
