Is there anyway to download that video from mixergy? I would like to save a local copy.

(Heard mixergy is a paid services for older articles)

I may be downvoted for this, but...

  -If you're on a Mac, navigate to the page using Safari.
  -Start playing the video
  -Open the Activity window (shortcut: command + option + a)
  -You should see a large file being downloaded into your cache. 
   (In this case, it'll be from Wistia CDN).
  -Hold the option key down and double click on the file.
  -The file will now download to your downloads folder 
    as a .flv which can be opened by VLC.
This will work for most video sites on the web: Youtube, etc.
