with mplayer but as soon as the buffering completes the file vanishes.
Did you have any luck?

is manageable, since I can then feed that url to mplayer or vlc and
instruct them to capture / dump it. But what to do when neither of
these is the case, and AFAICT the player is using some proprietary
protocol to communicate with the server?
I'm interested in audio and video, but primarily the former. Now,
obviously the Flash code isn't providing its own HW drivers, so it must
be talking to the ALSA and video subsystems, so shouldn't there be some
way to instruct ALSA to dump the audio to a file?
