Online video viewing is most convenient if there is a connection with a sufficiently high speed. If the speed of your connection is not high enough, you can download the video by grabbing it from the site. To do this, you can use one of several methods.
The simplest option is to use add-ons to the web browser, with which you view the video. In most cases, on the developer's official website, you can find many add-ons, both related to optimizing and simplifying web surfing, and specialized gadgets designed to perform certain functions. Look for extensions designed to download flash videos. Pay special attention to the fact that you need to look for such add-ons that are suitable specifically for the site from which you are going to download the video, because, for example, the add-on for downloading from youtube will not work with vkontakte.ru. Install the add-on and then place it on your browser panel.
You can also use specialized programs designed to capture and download watched video clips. For example, to download videos from the site vkontakte.ru you can use the vksaver program. Its peculiarity is that it can download not only video, but also audio files, but only from the site vkontakte.ru. Go to audiovkontakte.ru, download and save the application. Then restart your browser. Upon completion of this operation, next to the audio and video files there will be a button with the letter S. By clicking on it, you will be directed to a page from which you can download the file.
Use the page source view function. It will contain a direct link to the downloadable file. For example, to view the source code of a page using the Google Chrome web browser, you need to click on the "Settings" button, then go to the "Tools" menu, and then click on the "View source code" button. Enter mp4 or flv in the search code. Find the link to the file you need, then right-click on it and save it to your hard drive.
