I am here as a last resort as I have tried other things myself first and had really no success.
I am trying to rip a video off the British Channel 5 On Demand service and I have had no luck. I have got a piece of software that lets me rip things from other sites, including the BBC, but it won't work for Channel 4OD or Channel Five On Demand. Can anyone help me to do this?
I have tried Vity's Rapid Downloader and it didn't work, I have tried various other FLV capture softwares, they didn't work and GetFLV doesn't work either. Anyone else, more intelligent than I am, got any suggestions?
This is the link to the video I would like to save.
I also saved the other link from the Source section on the right-click function and got this link with numbers at the end, just in case that might help in some way -
Thank you in advance for your time.

Likely has a copy protection flag set.
Try a tool that doesn't use the url, but simply captures the data as it's streaming. Such as Replay Media Catcher 5 (which works on all the content that I've used it for..but I haven't tested on BBC streams.Google is your Friend

Channel5 uses often Brightcove, and sometimes the links returned are downloadable via rtmp, but in this case we have a drm file:

In other cases, a link like
are downloadable rtmpdump -r "link" -o something.mp4
rtmpdump -r "rtmpe://bt.fcod.llnwd.net:1935/a800/o10/" -a "a800/o10/" -f "WIN 11,9,900,117" -W "http://admin.brightcove.com/viewer/us20131111.1220/connection/ExternalConnection_2.swf" -p "http://www.channel5.com/shows/greatest-kids-tv-shows/episodes/greatest-kids-tv-shows/" -y "mp4:videos/19582164001/201311/23/19582164001_2820463855001_C5170590001A-1200k-channel5.mp4" -o "19582164001_2820463855001_C5170590001A-1200k-channel5.flv"
