If you think Flash is the grooviest thing to come along since sliced bread, this Firefox add-on will suit you nicely.

Sothink SWF Catcher for Firefox is for folks who like All Things Flash. Launching the utility from the Tools menu opens a vertical pane on the left side of the Firefox window adorned only by a simple menu. When we visited a site with embedded Flash flicks--whether e-cards, games, or other items--Sothink listed the items by name in the vertical pane. We were able to add URL and size details to the list easily by clicking options from a drop-down list on the panes' menu bar. We were able to save the items to a folder of our choice by right-clicking the item's name in the list.

This free tool doesn't offer any features beyond what we've described here, but it performed quickly in all our tests, and it's pleasingly simple to use. Any Firefox user interested in compiling a Flash library will find Sothink SWF Catcher for Firefox a handy little tool.

"Fantastic!"

May 07, 2009  |  By optimist134

 |  Version: Sothink SWF Catcher for Firefox 1

Pros

Does exactly what it says it will do.

Cons

There is a small learing curve, but it is fairly intuitive.

Summary

I have yet to run across a video I can't capture. I haven't tried any of those from sites that require their own "special branded" video player, so those probably won't work. After all, it IS meant for flash videos. As for the folks who had a hard time installing, I suggest you get it by way of the Firefox add-ons site.

"Sothink SWF Catcher for Firefox can't be installed."

January 27, 2009  |  By Holybride

 |  Version: Sothink SWF Catcher for Firefox 1

Pros

I can't install it, so I don't know any pros.

Cons

It has xpi extention, so your computer doesn't know with what application it should be opened.
When I tried to open it with Firefox, the firefox said "Sothink SWF Catcher" will not be installed because it does not provide secure updates.

Summary

I can't try it at all since it won't be open nor won't be installed.
