have a look at this webpage and see if you can download the video(s) w/out searching for it, if possible. i was not able to find the video. surely, there must be an easy way to find these videos. there are two videos if you scroll way down. but there is also one at the top. thank you.

- new video request - # 2
thank you for the hints guys. i will add the technique to my custom browser/webtool (a tool i am working on to pull videos for me) but now i have another request at the link below.
see the "related video shorts" section, where you see a video for the "Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 Wireless Mobile..." that is the one i am trying to find.
so, i've looked at the source code but can't seem to find the video link (or mp4 webm flv f4m m3u8 etc etc) for the video which seems to be a floating window or pop up and plays the video. but i want to download it instead because my 1.1Mbps DSL keeps buffering every few seconds on these amazon videos.
what i'm looking for is the clue snippet. thank you.

sorry, i have those already. i meant the third video in this link here, the image has a link but i can't figure out how to find it through the source code. and i tried youtube-dl with different http addresses but couldn't figure it out.
Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 Wireless Mobile Scanner at CES 2015
edit: there must be a "url link" that i can feed into youtube-dll or else a direct link that i missed on the source page of that amazon webpage. this is something that i will feed into my browser/webtool for other amazon pages that house this kind of video.

Hi vhelp ,
Here what I have seen for ScanSnap ( Fujitsu ) :

thanks guys, i appreciate the help.
for some reason this kind of video (from amazon) does not play smoothly. it intentionally pauses and buffers every few seconds. anyway. i looked in the Opera cache folder and the video was there "opr0BVN5.tmp" but that's not what i wanted. that is, i was not trying to get the video because i couldn't. rather, i could, through the cache, but i have to wait for it to finish playing in my browser, and that's not always practicle. anyway.
what i am after is how to obtain it, the url link, so that i can add that feature to my custom browser/webtool that i am working on: for websites that i am familiar with, i will have a selector and choose the site, i.e., "amazon" and my app will know what routine to use to extract or download the video. this particular video was not available through the websites source code. i searched for it to no avail. i suspect that to obtain it that i would have to run a .js or .css file. i could be wrong, but aazerty provided a link that was not in the source so my guess is he obtained it through running a .js or .css file (or the link that ponens provided) in some kind of "sniffer" utility and he was ultimately able to "build" the finished link.
youtube-dl but it still did not help me. so, i kept looking until i gave up.
in this hobby utility that i am building, i am trying to use the least amount of external utilities as possible, so the website source code is what i am using to obtain the video that i can whenever possible, and youtube-dl as a fallback if everything else fails. thank you again for all your help.
update.. i found it.
1. run http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SJJSBSM/ref=pd_va_rv_0 in my utility, i have a [Button] for runing an http request and it runs this link
2. and returns me the results of the *new* source code
3. search for an ".mp4" text and vualla.
