get flashanimations without option "save"


this is a song from the country i was born in. they had not a too much different "information problem" like we discussed in the gmail-thread... i'd really like to save the .swf file but i don't know where to find a folder like "temporary internet files" in windows.
i use mozilla firefox 0.9 and konqueror that came with suse 9.1, but not too often since it freezes all the time...

best regards

In Konqueror, there is an option to inspect the DOM of the current page. From that, you can get the URL of the .swf file; you can then download it by typing it into the toolbar.

You can also use “file/save as…” if you have the SWF file opened without a containing HTML page, or right-click on the containing HTML's border and “View Source”.

If you have the URL for it, you can also download it into the current directory with
Code:
wget url

Gee, I never thought of that. Firefox has an extension for inspecting the DOM as well, so you're all set (as am I if I need to do it too.) Thanks for asking the question that i didn't know I wanted an answer to. LOL

DOM stands for Document Object Model. It's basically a tree structure that represents the contents of a web-page.

Go to Tools/DOM Inspector, and look under Document/HTML/Body. Somewhere under there you'll find an OBJECT or EMBED attribute whose source URL ends in .swf. Right-click on that URL and save it.
