Convert Online Video to MPG File

I'd like to figure out a way to convert a video, such as the Maxed Out video (
The Silver Bear Cafe ) to an MPG file so that I can watch it on my TV instead of on the computer (I realize the image quality won't be great).

Anyone figured out a good way to do that?

I'm not sure I understand the question. That video probably already is an MPG. Are you just looking for a way to view it with a different viewer?

Try this:

oh...i learned how to do this for a video i put together. google "download flv videos" and it should get you started. you'll need to use a website that will download it for you, then a simple program to convert.


start with those search terms and the rest will follow, i promise..

And if you simply want to avoid the flash player, go here and you can choose to download the MPG directly:
