I just dowloaded a copy of SWF Browser and I am having problems retrieving swf from the web to use as a learning tool. Could you please suggest ways of doing this!

Thank You

Hi,

You can get the SWF from your browsers cache most of the time.

Also you can view the source html and get the path/name of the SWF file, create a quick HTML file with the SWF link and then right click choose 'save target as' (IE).

Tom,

Gimme the URL and let me have a look. It might be loading external SWFs...

I've just checked, no problem. Here's what i did:

A
Entered the URL to IE and let it load.
Opened folder windows/temporary internet files
Sorted the contents by 'last accessed'
dragged and dropped 344k SWF file into an open folder

B
Created new txt file
Wrote the following (hope this shows alright):
<html>
<a href="http://www.swift3d.com/swf/v07_10_20.swf ">
the swf
</a><html>
Renamed the file to an html
Opened file with IE
Right clicked the link and selected 'save target as'

Yet another way you can achieve this is by viewing the source and opening the SWF itself.

You will still need to retrieve the SWF out of your cache though.
