    Not that I would look, but exactly which site is that?

    The only sad thing is that this version wont save flv videos into /tmp/Flash*

    Or at least it deletes it. In /proc/<PID>/fd the descriptor says deleted:
    16 -> /tmp/FlashXXU1p1aq (deleted)

    The thing that is REALLY disturbing about "flash video" is that you ***DON'T NEED FLASH OR HTML5*** to embed a video in a web page!

    Just throw it in an < embed src = "path/to/video" > tag
    ** it'll either launch it into a media player, or if you have a media player plugin (like mplayerplug-in), it'll load it right into the browser.

    This has worked since about firefox 1.0... or maybe even before that.

    <EMBED ...> is not a part of the HTML 4 or xHTML 1 specifications, but it is still widely supported by modern browsers. Unlike other tags, the attributes used by <EMBED ...> depend on the type of plugin being used (this odd free-attribute concept is why <EMBED ...> has been rejected by the HTML standards makers).

    The standards compliant element is <object> which has been around for a long time (maybe even longer than <img>). But browser support for this is not so great.

    Did anyone find a workaround to get the /tmp files back?

    Just incase you're not aware, you can copy the file descriptor from /proc/<PID>/fd if you want the file.....

    or at least get behind Gnash and Lightspark for playing back legacy Flash content
