Ok, let's say you visit a website with the following flash player on it.

http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=Flash+Mp3+Player

A song will be downloaded onto your computer and played. Where is this music file on your computer? Where does it get stored?

I am not sure that the media is actually downloaded, but I think it is streamed.

So are you saying that if something is streamed, then it is not on my computer? How does my computer play it then? It just doesn't save it somewhere, temporarily?

I would imagine it is stored in a temporary cache as it is "downloaded", then when the cache is filled, the data is fed into the Flash player. The cache, however, would only contain a small portion of the file and empty itself as more data is fed into it.
I am not an expert on this, so take what I say with a grain of salt.
Cheers,
John
