rogo, welcome to the forum.

Things are not clear here a bit. How are videos saved as HTML file?

Or, have you just saved the webpages containing the video as HTML?

The video formats cannot be in HTML, and viceversa, HTML files are not videos. Therefore, you will have to download the actual videos. The HTML files cannot be converted into videos.

If you're using Firefox or other mainstream browsers like Opera, Chrome, IE, Safari etc, then most free download managers is already integrated in them. See this article: Best Free Download Manager. They could be used to dowload the flash videos.

The browsers also provide extensions for download purposes like VideoDownloadHelper in Firefox

If you are not using one among the mainstream browsers, then you have little luck with the free download managers for integrating into them. I've only found one commercial download manager that does the same purpose of integrated into any browser even the secondary browser.

If you're using one among these browsers, then these are the ways that you can download the flash videos
  • 1. You can use onine services like SaveVid, KeepVid, CatchVideo that lets you to enter the url of the page that contains the flash video. For this Java needs to be installed on your system. But still they won't be able to capture the video from all sites.
  • 2. The best way is to use a url sniffer/snooper program that sniffs the url, analyzes the packets and checks whether there is any multimedia content avaialable for download. Programs like Url Snooper, SmartSniff and BitAnalyzer does this. Most of them require WinpCap driver to be installed, so you should allow that during installation. But you may choose not to install the driver for SmartSniff, as it can do the same with raw sockets too
