How to record live streaming flash video?

by test123123123 / March 22, 2007 7:26 PM PDT

I want to record a live flash webcast that will be broadcast only 1 time, so I won't be able to replay and try again if I don't save it the first time. I've read about converting .swf files from temp internet files folder to .avi, but there are so many video converters to choose from at and I don't know which are the best for my needs.

I know it's an old post, but since Google is pointing people here I think it's relevant.

The Flash To Video Encoder Program is only useful when you already have an FLV file in the first place. The original question here was, in essence, how to capture an FLV file?
