Any way to save the classic match video?

I'd like to save the classic men's matches on the US Open website. Is there any way to download it?

download directly:
Agassi-Blake 2005: http://www.usopen.org/media/video/CL...360_400kbs.flv
Martin-Moya 2000: http://www.usopen.org/media/video/CL...360_400kbs.flv
Agassi-Stich 1994: http://www.usopen.org/media/video/CL...360_400kbs.flv
BJK-Casals 1971: http://www.usopen.org/media/video/CL...360_400kbs.flv
BJK-Goolagong 1974: http://www.usopen.org/media/video/CL...360_400kbs.flv

you'll need an flv player like this one:

I had saved those videos before but my hard drive crashed. I tried the links and they don't work any more. How can I download them again?

WM Recorder should record FLV files/streams too.Depends how long these videos are, free demo version records up to 10 min per clip.
http://www.wmrecorder.com/

Full version (if you buy it) recording time per clip is unlimited.Of course, if the videos are encrypted,DRM protected, You can not playback recordings, but I dont know if they are.

I tried those links but got a "page not found" - They don't seem to be available outside the USA if you go and look for the files via the browser

Yes, as I say, trying to view those videos from outside the US fails with an error message.

Re: Any way to save the classic match video?

and my question is this :

Why the hell is there no one there during the Moya-Martin Match?

That was a shame because it was such a great match and a great moment for Martin. I think a lot of people left when he lost the second set because he fought so hard in both sets they thought he was finished. Also, it finished past 1:00 AM so some people left because they had to get up for work the next day.

Another problem was that USA's time slot finished in the middle of the 4th set tiebreaker, so they switched to CBS. As a result of that a lot of people who just left the VCR recording woke up the next day watching a rerun of some sitcom and missed the whole victory lap.

So its tough to find people who recorded the entire match including the end of the tiebreaker and the entire 5th set.

I wish that the US Open let you download the full matches like Wimbledon does.
