Any way to download Nico vids?
« on: January 18, 2009, 05:15:11 AM »
Hey people. Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section of the forums, but considering that it's video-related in a way, I thought of putting it here.

I was wondering if there is a way of downloading Nico vids. Why? Oh, say I wanted to watch this collection of super awesome team combos again and again without the need to wait for the thing to load on my browser (my Internet connection sucks). Can anyone help me?

There's NicoFox for FF, and a Greasemonkey extension you can find if you google.

If you use a download manager (older versions of Flashget are my preferred tool) you can install the Flashgot extension for Firefox and it'll automatically catch any media being played in your browser (audio or video) and flash a little icon on the statusbar, which you can click and it'll automatically load your preferred download manager with the CORRECT direct download to the media file. :D

Opera loads them in caches, at least, as files with very strange extensions.  If you wipe your cache out, load your target, and fish for the biggest file, you have a good chance of finding your target.

Use http://toshichan.selfip.org/. Log in to your account, load the video fully, and then paste and download the link (while the video is opened and fully loaded). Then your comp should download the .mp4/.flv instantly.  (If you download w/o the video fully loaded it will take some time to dl)

I tried the toshichan one, but then an error popped up saying "404 Forbidden". So I tried the Nicofox thing and now I'm downloading the flv. Didn't try the other stuff though. Thanks for all your help guys!

You can use  :) Smiledownloader to get nicovideos.

It's basically Japanese but you'll find no difficulties in downloading vids.

This's an ancient topic though.

What I usually do is load the video page in internet explorer and then once it's finished loading (for vista) I go to to this location in windows explorer

C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5

You have to go to tools -> folder options -> view and click "show hidden files and folders" and possibly uncheck "hide protected operating system files"

In the Content.IE5 folder, you'll have some folders with odd names, a file called desktop.ini and a file called index.dat

Check inside the folders and look for a file called smile[1].flv . It's easiest to find this file by sorting the files in the folder by size, and it'll usually be the largest one.

The process on XP is about the same.

This seems kind of long, lol. But I've found it to be the easiest way to download stuff from nico video without having to download any extra applications.

Yea, I sorta knew of that method cos I used that to download songs from streaming sites. I asked on this forum because when I was trying OrbitDownloader I kept getting some sort of error that had 'Forbidden" written in it so I presumed that the Nico site had encrypted the videos or something to prevent anyone from downloading them or something (I'm not very good at these stuff). But seeing that the internet is full of people who make stuff to override these kind of things I thought I would try asking to see if there was a known method or not.
