Explanation

When you watch a flash video like youtube in a browser, the video file is saved on your harddisk at a temporary location. And, if you watch a video and then another video in the same window, the first one will be deleted.

Limitations

  • Might not work with all browsers.
  • Does not work with all websites (for example IMDB).
  • Does not work with an anonymous window in Chrome.
