in ubuntu both Chrome and Firefox stores temporary files in /tmp . Now im using MacOsx and i dont know where to find Temporary files, such as flv videos, do you know something about it ?
Firefox stores its files in
Chrome stores its files in
You can see these paths when you run either of the following:
If you just want to download FLV files off a video sharing site, I suggest using a browser plugin, or Safari's Web Inspector with resource tracking.
If they follow the correct OS X conventions, the temporary files will be in
where the x's represent some sort of random string, which is per application (I think).
In Ubuntu for Firefox, you can do:
This will display the direct URL to any media file on the page. You can select/highlight it and click the Save As... button. Choose your directory and save it.
Works fine for me that way. I usually do it for .swf files but might work for .flv files as well.
I know this isn't a solution for the temporary file question but that this might help if you're trying to obtain a media file from a website.
