[blindreplay] Recording Videos From Local TV Stations: Would Replay Or Media Catcher Be Best?

In June Dave and I were on a local TV newscast as we explored the nearby
Sequoia National Forest and climbed Moro Rock, about 9000 feet high.  We
wanted to publicize a new bus shuttle service from Visalia to the forest,
and the station decided it would be a good human interest story.  We agreed
to allow the reporter to accompany us and record parts of the trip in order
to demonstrate that blind people can indeed enjoy the local attractions
alone when there is available transportation.  That's the quick version, and
I do have a question.

I have repeatedly tried to play the video which resides on the station
website.  I find only what appear to be numbered elements which click as
though opening as links or flash content.  I can hear no sound.  I'm
wondering if there's a way I can determine what this is, then record it to
share with interested family and friends.  Of course video would be nice,
but it's not necessary to share with blind friends.  

The following link may take anyone interested to the feature:

If not, please go to the <kmph.com> site, then click "community
correspondent", then "special assignment", then "blind ambition" page and
there is a button labeled "View Videos Now" .  :  

I have asked on another list how I might watch this clip, but the discussion
regarding You Tube got me wondering if there might be a way I could at least
make and hear a recording, if not play the audio from the clip directly.
I'd like to get this clip before it goes away, though they still have things
from January there so they tend to hold them for several months.  

Thanks very much in advance for any help.
