If you turn off "Save Loaded Media" and just turn on "Save Streaming
Media" then you just get the .flv or .mp4 video files (and any .mp3 or
similar audio files).  If you wanted the Flash files themselves (not
the media, but the "flash movie") then you are stuck also saving all
the little image files that the Flash file loads, too.  "rm" is your

However, leaving these options on will get *all* relevant files from
all the times that gnash runs; you'll have to clean out the directory
periodically.  And gnash doesn't know good names for these streams, so
they come in with simple names that you'll probably want to rename.
On my Linux machine, "totem videoplayback117" will play back such
a file, so I can see whether it's one I want to delete.

You can also set and clear these options in the Gnash "Edit ->
Preferences" pop-up menu, from any gnash.  So you can turn off "Save
Streaming Media" after you have the one(s) that you want; and turn it
on before loading one that you want.

Unfortunately gnash doesn't have a way to save just the *current*
streaming media from a pop-up menu item ("Save as ...").  Want to add
that to the code?
