Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

My problem is very similar to this post, the only difference is before the flash video is up, there are few flash ads showing, I tried to follow the steps in the answer in that post, but got lost due to too many ad flashes, is there any other easier way to find out the download server in the step 2 when there are flash ads before the actual flash video?

Here's an example link: http://www.stopstream.tv/39/76/397656.html

ps: I'm not sure if I'm doing the right way, I tried to add comment to the OP, but since my rep is just 6, I can't add comment, this is why I'm creating a new question.

Thanks Michael

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

the link you put above is to a live tv, while arte tv (discussed in the other post that you refer to) provides videos on their website for a certain period of time that you could download. make your question more clear: do you want to simply download a video or record a stream? –  cipricus Aug 7 '12 at 14:17
if the latter is the case, look at this question askubuntu.com/questions/54787/record-live-streaming –  cipricus Aug 7 '12 at 14:46
You were right, it's a stream and not video, sorry for the mix up. Thanks a lot for this tip, I'll give it a try. –  Michael Aug 14 '12 at 5:03
this site functions on the principle of creating a "question+answers" package that would be of public interest. this is very useful in time, because all kind of unexpected (and interesting) problems are faced by linux/ubuntu users, and the presence of this community is a great thing. so, please edit your question and you will get a good answer –  cipricus Aug 14 '12 at 14:45
