URL Snooper doesn't work for you?

mm, I have a problem with my custom installation of XP, where I removed some network drivers required for wincap
I would be grateful if you could catch it and paste the link to the file
thanks

PS: or it may be hardcoded with the flash

hard-coded flash means it's better to try something like Total Recorder or Streamripper. anyway will take a look at the website later..

actually i did but after that i couldn't find the thread.. :) what you said was true, there is only a .swf file so URLSnooper didn't pick up any urls. as i mentioned before, Total Recorder or Streamripper seems a better option.

can you paste the link of the swf that contains the music please ? that can be played in a video player afterwards
because ripping the music will loose quality I think (that would be the last option)

thanks

Another last resort option is using Audacity to record it and export to mp3

it's the same link that has the music

i can download the page and possibly the music is in it
downloaded with downthemall
it says it's a compressed shockwave flash object
and ie8 tells me it's a script and blocked it

a direct link to the page connected seems the only way to play the clip

works well, it saved an swf file from the cache of firefox that has only the audio, that I suppose is has been saved "losslessly"
now, I can extract the audio to an mp3 or convert it to mp3

thanks!
