    How (where) can I access the temp files and cache files produced when browser is used to look at websites. Want to be able to replay videos watched on browser. Are they stored on sdcard or system memory?

    While in the browser touch the star in the URL area. Three choices comes up. Bookmarks, Most Visited and History.

    You should be able to locate what you're looking for there. For downloads in the browser select settings, more, and downloads.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, Hook, but after watching a youtube video, there is no entry in the menu/more/downloads screen. I'm wanting to capture (to file) videos from youtube, etc.

    Actually Hook...what he is wanting to do, wont work using your method...if Android(other browsers) work the same way as a normal internet browser on a PC. If you do as you suggest, the only real option that would somewhat do what he is asking, is the History Tab...and once he clicks any site he has listed, its going to fire the browser back up and actually go online.

    What he is asking to do, is navigate to the Temp Directory and view the content "off line" if I understand correctly...much the same as you can do on a normal PC.

    OP, I havent actually tried this, but the browser cache should be on the SD card...so I would first go there and root around and see what ya can find. It is also possible that it is on the internal phone memory...and if so, then you will need "root" access to get in there and root around. I do know there are some Temp files, but I dont ever recall seeing any "flash" content stored there as most all I ever use on the internet is streaming, so no actual "system downloads" go on...good luck either way...

    Hey BodyBagz - right on. You understand my problem. I have already looked around on my sdcard for flash content, and found nothing. Hopefully I won't have to root the phone to find what I want (don't really want to get into that mess - especially since as I understand it, I'd have to re-root the phone every time there's an OS update). I think (correct me if I'm wrong) there HAS to be a temp storage of the flash content "somewhere" on the phone in order to play it the first time.

    I`m sure there is...and I would be willing to bet its stored somewhere on the internal memory.

    Another option, and again I havent looked into this either, but you could check to see if there is an app that will do this, or a browser add-on...such as the one I use on FireFox on my PC...

    Good ideas. I've already looked for an app to capture videos. Will look for a browser add-on.

    Anyone have any app or add-on suggestions to capture videos?
