O.P. Getting the mp3 file out of a flash player
There are many sites where you can listen music by a flashplayer, but is there a way to get the mp3 file out off it?

You could use a Program like Record Smart that will record your computer's sound output and you can save into an .MP3 format.

Okay
Trying all google results:
1: License:    Shareware, $29.95
2: - (mp3player in flash)
3: - (mp3-player)
4: - (mp3-player)
5: - (mp3player in flash)
6: - (mp3player in flash)
7: - (how to make a mp3player in flash)
8: - (idem)
9: - (I don't speak French, but probably something different)
10 - (mp3player in flash)
Nor did I get anything I could use on page 2 till 5.

So only the first site offered what I want. But for even more money.

RE: Getting the mp3 file out of a flash player
There are a a few ways to go about this, if I understood your post correctly.


As already suggested by atown44 you could simply record the sound output of your computer. This can be done using many different programs available on the Internet. There are plenty of free sound recorders out there that you can use. Personally when I wish to record sound output I use Audacity. This involves setting your "input" on volume settings to "Stereo Mix" (I've also seen it called "WhatUHear", and most likely it can be named other things depending on the maker of your sound card) and then simply pressing the record button and exporting the recording to an MP3 file.


If the flash file in question is an animation (such as those found on http://www.weebls-stuff.com/) then the actual output is more than likely made up of a few different sounds embedded within the swf that play at a specified time. These can be recorded using the method I have stated above, or if you save the swf file on your computer the individual sounds (e.g. background music in the Weebl & Bob toons) can be ripped using software, such as Flash Decompiler. I don't know of any free SWF decompilers though, so if anyone else has any links feel free to post them.

Instead of ripping each individual sound in cases like the above, you could also run the swf file through a converter such as SUPER and selecting .mp3 as the output format, which would give you an mp3 recording of the flash file.


For sites that have a player that loads different mp3s when you select them from a list or something, there is another method, however it is much more complicated, and involves trying to find out where the flash file loads the mp3 file from. This involves extracting the action script from the flash file, and finding the part that actually loads the mp3, and then using that to work out the complete URL of the .mp3 on the server. If you do go down this route, one freeware action script ripper I use is Flare.

Personally I'd go with the first method or the second, depending on what it is you wish to extract the mp3 from.

Hope this helps :)

O.P. RE: Getting the mp3 file out of a flash player
I installed Audacity, but how to get sounds from a flash file?
Just clicking the record button and then playing the music in flash doesn't load the sound in audacity.
Do I need a microphone or how to do this?

I'm on Windows XP so the method might be slightly different if you use Vista, but open up control panel, then sounds and audio devices, then click "Audio" and under Sound Recording select your soundcard. Then click on Volume and make sure "Select" is clicked under "Stereo Mix" (or whatever the equivalent is for your soundcard).

Then try recording again.

Below is how it looks on mine:

Hope this helps..

You can decompile the file if the mp3 is stored as part of it, but most of the time for flash players the mp3 file is stored on the server and streamed by the flash. In that case you can use a packet sniffer to see where it accesses it.

@ Fatfreechicken:
Thanks, it works.
The only disadvantage is, that it hasn't a mode to start recording as soon as a sound is played. But the editing options can help a bit.

@ deAd:
I want a solution which is for free. Decompilers aren't free.
