    Help with downloading a tricky embedded media??

    Hi guys (and girls)
    I've been struggling all morning to figure out a way to grab this embedded video off a website.
    Tried looking at the activity monitor in Safari and since it's not cached it doesn't show up.
    Tried 'Unembed" script with firefox: doesn't work.
    Tried 'DownloadHelper' firefox tool knowing that it wouldn't work either and of course it didn't.

    So I started looking at the source code, couldn't find where the embedded file is located.
    I'm certain it's a wmv file because I can only view it on windows os and not mac. (no working flipformac plugin for this one, but that's besides the point)

    Either way I'm hoping there's a genius out there who can give me a simple solution.
    Here's the link to the video:


    (it's a video about a crazy muslim that hopes islam will conquer the US, the kind of thing I want to download and inform my friends about)
