    You can't use wget to follow links in flash animations. Flash is far more complex than wget will ever want to handle. I don't think that the flash file format is open anyway.

    Well, if you can't find URLs, then you're out of luck. I don't know how the Flash file format works, but maybe you can do something like this to retrieve URLs from a Flash file:
    Code:
    wget -O - http://url/to/flash | strings | egrep '(^http://)|(www\.[^.]+\.com)'
    Try it and see.
