Geek Software of the Week: Super!
While working with the new video netcast… I found that I needed a way to incorporate a video from the web into my video editor. In this case, the Weird Al Yankovik video, “Don’t Download this Song.” It was on the web as a flash video on MySpace. First, I used the Firefox plugin called “Video Downloader” to capture the video as a Flash “FLV” file. Then, I needed a way to convert it to an MP4 format video to pull into my video editor, Ulead VideoStudio. Now, where to find a free, excellent, video format converter? Enter, “Super” to the rescue!

It was VERY nice, and easy to convert the file, then I was able to pull it right into the video! By the way, here’s the link to the Firefox Video Downloader:
