You all know that all modern websites today have flash files embedded on their pages. Some use flash as a part of their website design and some use them for showing advertisements. But now I’m pointing on flash games directory websites which are very popular.
So if you try to save one of these games in your computer you will not be able to do that (see the picture above). But now I’m going to show you a small trick on how to download .swf flash files in your computer. In this case I’m going to demonstrate this trick in Google Chrome, but you can apply the same steps in Firefox.
1. Open the website where is embedded the flash file you want to download. In my case I decided to download a flash game from Y8.com.
2. Right click anywhere outside from the flash embedded file and click on View page source.
3. Now you are at the Source of the page where is embedded the .swf flash file that you want to download. Press CTRL+F and the FIND text box will appear in the top right of the Google Chrome. Type .swf at the textbox in order to find the URL of the flash file, in my case the URL of the flash game.
Google Chrome instantly will find the URL where the flash file is located. Right click on it and select Save link as… which will save you flash file in your computer.
Now you flash file is downloaded. Hope you found helpful this quick trick.
