Audiodump a flash file


I see that there is a codec in mplayer that will play swf (flash) files. My browser (Firefox) automatically plays such files off the web with Macromedia Player. I've viewed the html source and am not sure where my pc is downloading the swf file from that Macromedia Plays. I know how to audiodump mplayer streams to a wav file...how could I make an audiodump file of a flash file when I don't know the URL? My home network consists of Linux boxes: Fedora Core & Slackware.

You should save the flash to disk first. And there are several options for getting the files you want. If it's a simple, single-file flash object, take a look at page properties>media and you should find a link to it there. If it's a more complicated multi-file type, you can probably find them in your browser cache. Type about:cache in your address bar and you can browse, search, and save files to disk just like with a regular web page.

There's also an extension out there that will let you save embedded objects easily. I forget the name exactly, but it's something simple like 'download flash'. Another option is 'Live HTTP Headers', which will show you what locations Firefox is contacting when you browse, including your flash files.

I cannot find the swf file for a 3 minute song in my cache or with any firefox extensions. The firefox extensions show swf files that must be links to the actual file. My cache has small 55 byte swf files that are probably the same links.

Since the sound is going though my soundcard, couldn't I make a audiodump of the file with sox? How?

I was thinking that you could download the swf from the links you found. If you can open the link directly in your browser (i.e. on it's own and not embedded in an html page), you should be able to do a 'save page as' to transfer it to disk. You could also try using wget or something to download it directly.

It's starting to sound like they have some kind of streaming player set up though. You may be out of luck.

As for recording directly from the sound card, I'd guess it could be done with audacity or one of the other sound recorders out there. I couldn't tell you how to do it exactly though. To tell the truth, sound card stuff confuses the hell out of me.

That's what they've done....their own player opens up once you've logged in.

I think sox would do the trick if I could start playing the swf file from command line.....
