Question: Can Web2Disk download Flash content? What about embedded videos like YouTube?

Answer: Whether or not Web2Disk can download the Flash content for a specific site depends on how the website links to its Flash content. In most cases Web2Disk is able to download embedded “.swf” files. This is how most animations are included in websites using Flash.

Embedded video using a Flash based player is a different matter. With these types of websites the Flash player downloads the video content on demand, not the web page itself. When content is streamed in this way it is not possible for Web2Disk to download the video.
