It is only necessary to clearly carry out the proposed instructions.

Streaming video

It may happen that to sit down and watch online video is not possible. Or you can access the Internet hourly and watch a movie three hours more expensive than downloading it in an hour. It does not matter, most likely, it can be downloaded and viewed in offline mode. The mechanics of online translation can be of two types. The most common - the video is completely loaded on the user's computer and simply played in the browser. This concept is used by, the social network VKontakte and many similar sites. A less common and somewhat highly specialized translation technique is an online transmission used, for example, by the service, nothing is loaded on the computer, and the playback window is just a picture transmitted from the server. How to download online video of the first type - an unknowing user will figure it out, for the second type of broadcasts you do not even need to download, but record the broadcast, which, of course, is more difficult to perform.

On-line translation

Here everything is much more complicated. In this case, there is not even a video as such. Its just nowhere to download. But even if you ate - there are two ways. And then you can wriggle out - do not download the video, but record it yourself. Here will help a simple program Fraps. We expand the video to full screen, turn on the recording and turn on the video. And everything that will happen on the screen is recorded in a file, which can then be viewed without connecting to the Internet. However, in the case of hourly Internet fees this will not help - to record a video to a file, you still need to first view it online.
