I have a friend that asking me How to download the videos at the Media Prima Website. For you information, Media Prima is including 4 big television station that is 8tv, Tv3, Ntv7 and the latest one TV9. There’s many interesting tv series in those channel. But not all people have time to sit infront of the TV to watching it. Media Prima has introduce something new to Malaysia, which is online streamying Television Series. So, here is an easy tutorial on How to download the Televison Series from Tv3, 8tv, Ntv7 and TV9.
First, access to any one of those Media Prima channel website. You can access the site from this following url:
- TV3 – http://tv3.com.my
- NTV7 – http://ntv7.com.my
- 8TV – http://8tv.com.my
- TV9 - http://tv9.com.my
In this tutorial, im choosing to download tv series from the 8TV. Go to the website. At the top bar Navigation, you can see the Catch Up Tv button. Click it and choose which Television Series you want to download.
For example here, i want to download the GuaMuzik Supergig 2008. Click on it and you will be forwarded to the page to watch it. Now, stop the button first.
Select the embed code for the video. Copy it, open your notepad and paste it on the notepad. Then, you will something like the above codes:
<object width="570" height="467"><param name="movie" value="http://www.8tv.com.my/App_Themes/8tv/swf/FlvPlayer_570x467.swf"></param><param name="FlashVars" value="flv=http://medprima.vo.llnwd.net/o18/u/tv3/sec/guagig/guagig_2008_01_cft.flv&title=Guamuzik Supergig 08"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.8tv.com.my/App_Themes/8tv/swf/FlvPlayer_570x467.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="570" height="467" flashvars="flv=http://medprima.vo.llnwd.net/o18/u/tv3/sec/guagig/guagig_2008_01_cft.flv
&title=Guamuzik Supergig 08"></embed></object>
Notice the red in colour code? That’s the URL for the video. To download the video, just copy and paste the URL to your browser. Then, Firefox will do it all for you. You also can use your download manager for this.
You need to download all the 4 part of the video to watch the full series. To watch the video on your computer, you need to have a FLV Video Player. I recommend you to download the GOM Player since it support various type of file.
Or you also can choose to convert the videos into various media file such as 3gp melayu sensasi mysabul2u, avi, mp4 or anything else. But yeah, you need to have the converter first. Dont be lazy, google for it.
You also can convert the video online using Vixy.Net. But the website is kinda slow.
You also should remember that only the media content is fully owned and copyrighted by Media Prima Production. So, now you can download your favourite TV series anytime you want and watch it using your handphone, iphone, mp4, psp or anything that support video file. Ohyea, that’s so geeky!
