    Can someone tell me how to find the direct link of the embedded video in this page?

    http://oruwebsite.com/music_videos/apoorva-raagangal-1975/ezhu-swarangalukkul-video_f3df5ae2a.html

    I could not find it from 'view page source' or 'view page info'?

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    The site uses the following code to embed swf files.

    Code:
    swfobject.embedSWF("http://oruwebsite.com/music_videos/player.swf", "Playerholder", "496", "401", "9.0.115", false, flashvars, params, attributes);

    Download the demo of Replay AV and run it.
    Start playing the URL in your Browser.
    The real URL appears in the Window.
    Exit the Browser.
    'Preview the URL' gives the option of playing or saving the video.

    Thanks a lot for your help. But is it possible to locate the source URL of the video from the link?

    The webpage has an embedded video player. I'm interested in the direct youtube link. (Eg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKnjGbAg5mY)

    Hope that makes sense.

    Here you are mate I think this is what you are looking for. the piece of code you tok from the source of the page is only to load the player. The player then takes it's info for which movie it is loading from another piece of the code which would be this:

    Code:
    clips = clips + " { name: '', url: 'http://oruwebsite.com/music_videos/videos.php?vid=f3df5ae2a' } ]";
    
    so really the URL to directly go to the video is:
    Code:
    http://oruwebsite.com/music_videos/videos.php?vid=f3df5ae2a 
    putting that in the addressbar of any browser brings you the download dialogue for an mp4 file...right from google video.
    :)
