Actually, the newest version of the Adobe player doesn't put them in
/tmp anymore. Which is a pity. I used it not only to save videos I want
to keep (in fact I seldom used it for that, as youtube-dl usually works
better for this purpose), but more often to easily play a video in
mplayer, when Flash is too slow to play it properly on my machine.

(Unfortunately Gnash doesn't work with most video sites beside YouTube;
and also, the way Gnash permanently saves streams is actually less
useful for the use case I described: instead of just doing "mplayer
/tmp/Flash*", it's necessary to always specify the name :-( )
