We need to download swf files from a Moto CMS and we don't have access through FTP. The swfs are embedded with object tags. Is there a way to get the data from an object without an FTP connection?

Look through the website source code for the actual address of the SWF file and go to that link with any browser or download manager and you should be able to get the file. Otherwise you're out of luck.

  • Thanks, I tried that but was only able to download a PEG file and it's way too small to contain an SWF. Are PEGs compatible with Flash Pro?

  • @dcd018 so far as I know a peg is a game data file! May 18, 2012 at 20:42
  • Well it is 100% flash site which is why we need the swfs, so I can convert them to HTML5/JS. Maybe it's a shockwave file? IDK, either way thanks for your suggestion.
