Audio flash saver

Is there an extension like Video Flash Saver to save audio flash streaming.

I have look for temp folder, nothing.
I have uninstalled FlashPlayer and I use the modified plugin, but I always don't know where can be located the file.

unfortunately true streaming doesn't save the file to local disk and plays directly from the server.. this is much more common with audio files than video due to copyright issues and mainly bandwidth since true streaming will require much more bandwidth because every time the user pauses, skips or replays a file it ill have to be streamed from the server where as just saving a tmp file means the file can be reused as long as it's cached. naturally websites try to avoid that with video files which are much bigger and reduce costs. some audio websites do not adapt true streaming but those are rare and becoming less as record companies pressure them into streaming.
imeem http://www.imeem.com/ was one of those few no-streaming music websites but it got bought by myspace recently and now they use true streams

fla video server can't save audio streams because there was never a copy on disk to start with. the best way to save those audio streams is with a good sound recorder which can record directly from the sound card.

one of the best sound recorders is audacity which is available for many platforms:
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

another program called liveincode doesn't have special filters or advanced editing features which makes it perfect for that task
http://liveincode.rm.pp.ru/
it's for windows only

Thanks ... I'll try LineInCode (I already uses Audacity)

It's not specially for me, but for a poor Win XP user, so it can be ok smiling smiley

By the way :
In Linux you can also use sox to record a stream
from your soundcard from the commandline and encode
it on the fly to a mp3 file, without creating a
wav first.
The command would be :

sox -t ossdsp -w -s -r 44100 -c 2 /dev/dsp -t raw - | lame -x -m s - ./test.mp3

P.S.

You would need sox and also libsox-fmt-all,
and the right to use the Lame-Encoder, which
should be present for mp3.
Recording to an ogg file should also be a possibility.
Connect headphone output and front microphone input
with a cable and enable the front mic inputs in alsamixer
with F5 to see all mixers, and set both captures to the
first green mark at start.

I just noticed that there is a windows version
too at sourceforge.

All the songs I have listened were mere mp3, they are in the KM cache. You can see them with the mozilla cache viewer, but close KM first.
But sometimes, the Flash SWF object is just a program that connects to a XML file, and then plays files from there.
