ok this is what you do, you search the flash files you want, e.g. pacman,
after writing it in google at the end write in .swf, so it will look like: pacman.swf
Then click search,
When the lists come up you see many opions,
When you have found the one ou want, make sure on the left it has [FLASH] next to it,
next you right click the link and click "Save target as"
save it where you want it,
and there go you!

This does not work. All it does is save your Google search html page as pacman.swf.html  Silly.

Get a download accelerator that works with Chrome(I strongly recommend Orbit, which can be downloaded from here: http://www.orbitdownloader.com/) and configure it to automatically download the shockwave extention (*.swf).

for Ubuntu users, in the folder ~/.cache/chromium/Cache/, you can find every file buffered using "chromium" browser, and for google-chrome the cache folder is : ~/.cache/google-chrome/Cache/

If the URL has a .swf at the end
Just save as the page in control current page menu.

If the flash object is in a website.
Right click near the flash object (HAS TO BE NEAR or it'll be harder to find it) inspect element there should be some part that has a div tag then some name after it. Open that and it should say object type as a .swf. Click on that then go to the right and press the first HTML Object Element. It'll say all about the information about the object. What you want is the URL that has the .swf at the end. It'll usually say 'data: "x.swf"' for example. Or if the website uses something like 'outerHTML <param name...>, then remove all the subheadings of your url and put the tag at the end. For example, if it looks like that <param name="movie" value="/games123/game.swf"> and the website name is website.com, do website.com/games123/game.swf.

Hope that helps. Google made it complicated to download flash objects...

I have just figured out a simpler way to save flash files on google chrome in four steps.

(1) just goto the page with flash file(swf file) you want to save
(2) press ctrl+U to enter view source of the page(it will be opened in a separate tab)
(3) press ctrl+F to open the find box on top right corner of the "view source" page and type "swf" (withought quotes)
(4) now right-click on links ending with ".swf" (ie- http://brainteasers.ic.cz/zip/frogsgame.swf ) and click save as AND SAVE IT

@Lensgypsy
Actually, if you follow the instructions, it DOES save a .swf, not .swf.html
On Google search results, if a site ends in just .swf (a 'pure' flash file), as he said, on the "left it has [FLASH] next to it" in bold.

I wrote an extension for that very purpose, it got booted out from the official gallery, but is now available at http://bitbucket.org/m.23/flv_download/wiki/Home

Just press the button, and "voilà" ;)

Ubuntu: simply go to /tmp and copy the flash file with the most recent time stamp (might show increasing file size during download/watching)
Re: How to save flash files from a website in google chrome browser? themanhunt1234 4/4/10 4:29 AM
Do what the below comment says, but then right-click on the link and click "Save Link As". That should do it. You could also go onto the page and view the soruce and search for ".swf" to find the link. If it is like "/games/game.swf" then try fitting that into the current url so it is like "http://gamesite.com/games/game.swf"

Hi! The GetFlash plugin works fine. It may be usefull for someone's, when clicking on  GetFlash icon on visited Youtube page to links appears above frame with flash movie - the "Download"  and the "(Video)".
By clicking on "Download" lnks in most cases  takes to the  page with mesaage "An error occured, please try again later". But clicking on "(Video)" link saves the movie in all cases.
I hope my expirience willl be usefull for sombody.
Good Luck!
Someone, please help me to configure the OrbitDownloader to save flash movies in Chrome
Thanks for future

GET FLASH extension: I get the ERROR message: Oops! This link appears to be broken. For BOTH "Download & (video)" links.

YouTube Downloader extension: This extension works GREAT for me: Im running MAC OS X 10.6.1
Download: http://flaviobayer.no-ip.org/YouTubeDownloader/#down
Also available in FireFox and Opera.
Video on how to use this extension: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ir-tWmUhH0U

There is a way to download any media file in Chrome, just like the "Activity window" in Safari.

Please follow these steps to save a .swf flash file in chrome

1. Download Videocacheview a freeware tools from the following site
      http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/video_cache_view.html
This freeware tool helps to locate and view your online flash files which are cached in your system locally.

2. Goto the website in which your flash files resides. Play the flash file fully by streaming it in online.

3.Now run the application Videocacheview. It will automatically shows down the list of recently cached flash files with the corresponding website names. You can search the file name with its website name by ctrl+f. Double click the corresponding file a window will appear. In that see the Full-Path Filename: which gives the exact location of your file. Copy that and open it from your explorer.

4. To play that flash file download Windows Flash Player 10.2 Projector content debugger from the following site.
http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

This thing will surely work out.
All the best.
