Here I am going to outline how to download veoh.com videos
Veoh Videos (<30mins)
Navigateto the desired veoh video page
Right-click on the AdBlock-Plus icon and select
Open blockable item
Then type in the following
The text that comes up is the URL of the veoh video.
You can either copy the URL, place it in your flv player and watch the stream.....or
You can place the URL in the address bar + enter and download the videos onto your computer
If the video is more than 30 mins long. Veoh.com will only show a preview of the video
so following the steps above will only land you a 5 minute clip of the video or movie you wanted...read further notes at end of article
Navigate to desired video page
Right click the ad-block plus icon and select....
Open blockable item
Then type in the following text
The text that comes up is the URL of the youtube video
Copy the URL and place it in your flv player to stream ......or
place in the address bar + enter to download the video file onto your computer.
Make sure to add in filename.flv as you save the file. (adding this extension is essential for your flv player to recognise and play the files)
No hassle, no dodgy downloader software or website that give you lossy files. Yo will no longer need to have that youtube downloader extension on Firefox.
Notes: Veoh Videos (>29.59mins)
I have managed to work out how to get the full video URL off of veoh without using veoh just using firefox.
Here is how I did it
Type in the following after right clicking the ad-block icon and selecting "open blockable items...
copy the first line of text that appears and place in the address bar then press enter.
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
The above text should appear
Go to the line that says for example
video videoId="1497807" permalinkId="v14978074wEfGZEM" length="45 min 10 sec" tags="the host 2x02 x files" isExternalMedia="false" isDotComPlayable="true" isTvPlayable="true" extension=".avi" fileHash="bcc7c6cb2a737ea9e139b0ea61fa630c71e1ff91" previewHash="82bbdbb8b8eebdc2778486988d3330b611aa0634" previewHashLow="82bbdbb8b8eebdc2778486988d3330b611aa0634" numDownloads="0" portable="false" ipodLink="" fullPreviewHashPath="http://content.veoh.com/flash/p/1497807/82bbdbb8b8eebdc2778486988d3330b611aa0634.flv?ct=2a3d23e9190f59d4abd8973ded06067c8410ede57ac06a15" fullPreviewHashLowPath="http://content.veoh.com/flash/p/1497807/82bbdbb8b8eebdc2778486988d3330b611aa0634.flv?ct=2a3d23e9190f59d4abd8973ded06067c8410ede57ac06a15"
By substituting the green text with the italicized red text I was able to the URL of the full length video.
substituting the previewHash with the fileHash
Unfortunately i found out the hard way that veoh does not allow directory browsing of their site. So access to this file or ant other >29.59mins videos is restricted,
I got a 403 return. That is veoh.com for you right there.
