Re: [Gnash-dev] Gnash Temporary Files

Last week I submitted the question seen below, but have seen no replies...

On the theory that the gods help those who help themselves, I took my own final question,
Perhaps there is a website that explains the options for this (config?) file...?
and looked for the answer myself.

I searched and found the documentation page at
and pulled up the user manual and reference manual, but nowhere in either was there any reference to .gnashpluginrc or a representative environment variable (saveStreamingMedia).
(I had hoped to find other environment variables discussed there that governed the
storage of .jpeg and other non-flash files)

Could anyone please either tell me how to stop the storage of non-flash files, or direct me to where I can find documentation that does include gnashpluginrc and the environment variables that control the storage?

Thank you.

I wrote in a while back, asking where Gnash stored flash files it was loading
from YouTube (etc), so I could store the ones I wanted.

I was told to :
create the file: /home/scott/.gnashpluginrc
In it, put these lines:
set saveLoadedMedia true
set mediaDir /home/scott/gnash_media
set saveStreamingMedia true

This works great.  Thank you.

However, is there a way to be more selective in what files are stored there temporarily (actually, I don't know if any are ever deleted...), and which are more permanent?
The files I want seem all to be labelled "videoplaybackXXX", where XXX starts out blank, and then is numbered from zero on up.
But there are many other files (lots of .jpg thumbnails, for example, and lots of files sXXX) which I don't care about.  When I say "lots", I mean it: Ignoring all of the other sub-directories, the YouTube sub-directory has about 45 "videoplayback" files, but the total number of files is 1062!

Perhaps there is a website that explains the options for this (config?) file...?
