    Hi,
    In youku.com, I can watch the films which is in .flv format. However when I wish to download the videos, I noted that the show consists of many parts of .flv
    How do I download all these parts.
    Thanks

    Not sure if this is allowed - read forum rules regarding
    Hacking/Interference.

    http://www.techguy.org/rules.html

    The way most websites are set up that show movies
    is that you can watch them but not download. So I
    really am not sure if this is against forum rules or not.
    Ask a Mod.

    I believe YouKu delibrately broke their files into even
    more pieces than just the normal 4 parts to prevent
    people from downloading.

    Other websites do not - they just have the 4 parts.
    Sometimes you even find the full movie in 1 part.
    Having said all that, if you are smart enough to have
    discovered that YouKu has approx 12MB pieces,
    then you just save each one to wherever you want.
    And then you will just have to use a FLV viewer to
    see ALL those. If it is a 4 part movie, you are talking
    approx 48 pieces....hardly seems worth it for the
    work involved.
