    Sorry if this is obvious but I'd like to download a video from Yahoo and the site uses https. I think this is why I can't seem to detect the direct URL to the video file, and RTMPDump seems to have a problem with it too. as do other tools like NetTransport, Firefox download plugins etc.

    The link is
    https://uk.celebrity.yahoo.com/video/ronan-keating-tries-best-avoid-112858712.html

    What do I do to download?

    Thanks a million! Magic. I'm just really intrigued to find out how you figure out the stream URL and the file format?
