    Adobe Flash Player Question

    Hello all,
    Does anyone know where "Flash Player" (with Firefox) places internet streaming files? I can listen to the audio stream , pause , play, etc. even when i disconnect from the internet....Seems that it must be residing someplace in some file\ folder ...but i can't find it . Any ideas? Regards Fred

    PS: Right click "save as" doesn't seem to be an option when listening.

    RR,
    Hello... Thanks for you response..I opened it (Control Panel) but i can not find where the "file download " is saved to... I can see the download take place (NetWorx) and then "log off" from the internet and play\pause the stream ...as long as i leave the window to my browser open (no internet connection) So the file (download) must be stored ...somewhere? Regards Fred

    Look at the browser cache for FF (i.e. the TIF equivalent).

    Hi Joe,
    I have had a look through my OS... exploring most of the usual places....Program Files , Users, Program Data, Windows, etc. but can not find anything looking in "Flash", "Shockwave", "Adobe" , "Mozilla", "Temp" "Documents and Settings"etc. Could you be more specific when looking for "Browser cache"? Regards Fred

    If they are *streaming* multimedia content then they are not stored in
    their entirety on your host. Flash, for example, could save a .flv file
    to store the entire video or it may only store a .swf script file that
    is used to pull the bytes from the file server to play them using the
    Flash AX control. The .swf file is small and contains only the info
    needed to point at the source for the streamed data. So when you purge
    the TIF, you delete the .flv (cached) videos and the .swf (pointer)
    files.
    Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. -Albert Einsten

    Have a look at Nirsoft - web browser tools. There are four Mozilla/FF related utilities one of which is a cache viewer.

    Joe,
    Thanks for the link quite extensive I downloaded Mozilla Cache View and will test it ...The download page gives this information as to where the "Cache" is stored... The cache folder of Mozilla Firefox is located under C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[Profile Name]\Cache .. Good info! Regards Fred

    There are many useful free utilities at that site. Be aware that some of them are occasionally identified as malware even though none are. It is just the characteristics of what they do.
