MySpace Videos

My son has a video on MySpace. I have to send it to his aunt since something about "active x" and her security settings has her computer to where she cant view the video.That being said, Is there a way to download it, then copy it, or copy it to a cd straight from MySpace so I can send it to her via snail mail. Or is it Hopeless?! Thank you ever-so much for any advice.

Where was it uploaded?

Where was the video uploaded... through myspace? Youtube?? something else??? and how did it get onto myspace? there had to be an original somwhere if it's his own video... if not, that's a different story...

Uploaded

My son uploaded into myspace....Then with his profile being private I used one of the "video codes" to retrieve it. Once I did that I just saved the address directly to it.. I now just want to copy the actual video.
Thank you for your prompt reply

hmm...

Get on the computer he used to upload it... the original has to be on the computer (more likely than not)... and you can either trial and error by going into My Documents and look for it there, possibly in the My Videos folder... or you can use the search feature and trial and error with that (hey it may even be saved to the desktop)... Or search Recent Documents... could be stored there... these are just a few things to try... it'd be the easiest way... and if you knew what kind of extension it was (.mpeg, .mov, .wmv) then you could just go to search and type *.mpeg or whatever the extention is and it would show you all files in that format...

But this is assuming you have access to the same computer he uses...

Sorry I should have said. He is in Tenn. Im in New Orleans.Just a Dad missing his wayward son.Just thought there might be a way to download it or copy it straight from myspace. Again, Thank you very kindly for your prompt reply.

Well...

As far as I know, the only way to extract it from a link that you can't download, is to have some ripping software (something I've not had an interest in so I don't know much about)... but I could be wrong... I don't think there's a way to download it otherwise... and I wouldn't know where to get the software you'd need...

My only suggestion, is to tell them to change their settings temporarily just to watch the video... or... why don't you ask him to send you a copy of it via email? or snail mail...

Or you could wait for someone who may have better advice... Sorry I can't help you more...

Well.....

Well as fathers and sons sometimes do, we are not speaking for some unknown reason right now.So i dont see him assisting!!! But thank you very much for throwing at me all your advice. I guess I could try to shoot a video of my computer screen....just not very sure how that would turn out....
Thanks again animestrinity

*sweatdrop*

Oddly enough, I was going to suggest that... but then I thought... no... that would sound funny... and you'll probably get a blueish version of it with screen vibrations and that little line scrolling over the screen... but, if you really want it... then that seemes like a decent idea until you're speaking to him again... who knows... maybe someone will come up with a genius way to load it...
