Judging from a very cursory google, seems that there isn't one good answer
to this.  Therefore, you might try downloading the file again, using the
video download helper plugin that was recommended. 

I've used that successfully in the past--it will, if I just choose download
from the options, save an flv file (not compressed) in a directory it
creates, dwhelper.

What happens if you add .swf to the file's name.  (I haven't followed the
whole thread, you may have already done this.)
