It is not as straight forward as you may think, having tinkering around with source code etc. I discovered that when you upload a video to Bebo you are actually storing your file on www.videoegg.com so I took the embed source code that Bebo provide which reveals the first part of this tip.
Go to a page that displays a bebo video, you will know it is a bebo video because their logo is embedded as a watermark over the video then scroll down till you see the “Embed” part of the page.
Copy the embed code and paste it into Notepad, it will show something like this:
<embed width=”425″ height=”350″ src=”http://static.videoegg.com/videoegg/loader.swf” FlashVars=”bgColor=FFFFFF
&forcePlay=false&logo=&allowFullscreen=true” quality=”high” allowScriptAccess=”always” bgcolor=”#FFFFFF” scale=”noscale”wmode=”window” name=”VE_Player” align=”middle” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer” /><br><a href=”http://bebo.com/watchtv”>Watch More Videos</a> Uploaded by <a href=”http://bebo.com/watchuser/436885205″>www.bebo.com/De-baw</a>
All you are interested here is the part:
To download and save that file you need to put _high.flv to the end of the URL string in order to download that file in .flv format.
So the new URL would be:
Type or copy/paste this URL into a browser window and you will be prompted to download the .flv file
How to play an .flv file
You need to download a FLV Player to play back the .flv file. There are many free flv players available on the internet I use Wimpy FLV Player. No installation needed as its a stand alone player and it also supports drag and drop. It is available for both Mac and Windows.
Download it here: http://www.wimpyplayer.com/products/wimpy_standalone_flv_player.html
There is probably lots of software and tricks to download video from Bebo but I think this is the quickest way around it. Hope this helps you…
