    I have seen a number of guides that show how to go to Developer Tools in Chrome or Firefox browser and to click on the Network tab and then to watch the output for what obviously corresponds to the video stream (file keeps increasing in size).
    However in my case I am not seeing any evidence of a video file being streamed when I do this - using the location http://tenplay.com.au/channel-ten/the-bolt-report/2015/2/22
    How can I possibly capture the video file being played if I can't see it happening in my browser's Network console?

    Have you tried any stream downloaders? Like eagleget, idm, getflv, youtube-dl or livestreamer, etc. They might work better than just the browser.

    Thanks for all this fantastic advice! I really appreciate this help with streaming videos from TenPlay.
    Is there some kind of tutorial or article to work out how to put together the parameters for running rtmpdump.
    What change do I make to get mp4 output instead - so I can do some editing with my video editing software?
    How does one tell what streaming system is being used by a site i.e. how do I know TenPlay is using Brightcove?
    Once again thank you very much - in particular to Biezom - you have saved me a lot of time researching this.

    David
