if you didn't tweak your flasplayer settings the video should appear in
/tmp while it's streamed. Usually it's a random name with letters and
numbers. When you see the size stabilizing, or the progress bar in the
player full (pause the video, but leave it open), you just have to copy
that file from /tmp, rename it with extension ".flv". VLC will happily
If you tweak you flashplayer not to cache content locally, just tweak it
back using the setting panel from Adobe there :
the image in the upper right part of the page is a setting panel, what
you set there is set locally on your computer in ~/.macromedia/.
