At Nasul TV is a TV recorded show, free.

I want to be able to find the URL for the video and then to use wget to download it. How can I achieve this?

You probably need to install flash player from the software center to view videos online. – w4etwetewtwet May 14 '13 at 19:00

Running following command in terminal:

sudo apt-get install flashplayer-installer

Will let you watch videos in firefox.

More detail is needed. What do you mean by "viewing a link"? Normally you can find the link to video files in the page source, or via the Firebug network tab (if you don't have Firebug, you should get it). It should be something that ends in ".flv", or sometimes ".mp4", and once you have it it's easy to download: just open a terminal and type:

wget "" -O filename.m4v

(with the quotes).

I got Firebug but it didn't help. At that link above, there is a video. I'd like to have it's URL. isn't that something like http:..... ? There isn't any .flv there or .mp4, you could check for yourself. – user157244 May 14 '13 at 19:27
Why am I being downvoted? He asked how to use "uget" (which I assumed meant wget) to download it, that's what I'm providing instructions to do. – Matthew May 14 '13 at 19:27
@user157244 are you actually talking about having the file on your computer to keep, or just watching in your browser? can you post the link to the page the video is on? – Matthew May 14 '13 at 19:29 Here it is, I also posted it in the question. Of course I want to download it. – user157244 May 14 '13 at 19:35
