Just watch them and then copy them from the cache folder. If your web
browser is Opera, the cache folder is located at ~/.opera/cache/sesn/.
Sort the folder by file type and have a look at the flash files, it's
probably the most recent one. All files are named like ”oprXXXXX.tmp”
so it's probably a good idea to rename them to
WhateverNameYouPrefer.flv before or after you copied or moved them.

Since I don't use any other web browsers I can't say anything about
them, but I guess they work in a similar way, or maybe not…

Kind regards
