You could always use Audacity to just record it as it plays. As far as actually extracting the audio in file format, I'd imagine you'd need Flash MX or whatever it is.

Try looking in

majorgeeks.com multimedia section
http://majorgeeks.com/downloads32.html

example:
AoA audio extractor (freeware)
http://majorgeeks.com/AoA_Audio_Extractor_d5496.html
(extracts audio from flv and more)


edit to add-you may decide to use a transcoder too. That might give you more flexibilty in audio extraction programs. Search for "transcoder" in sites like majorgeeks.com, download.com, softpedia.com, http://www.doom9.org/software.htm, etc.

Hmm, I think I might just do the Audacity thing. How would you go about doing that?

Actually nevermind, my friend at school stumbled upon this today when he was trying to figure out the same thing. It works pretty smoothly, I'm impressed.

Thanks again guys.

Nice find, I might try that myself when I'm home.

For Googlers wondering how to do this using Audacity or similar:

Start up Audacity and set your recording preferences. Edit > Preferences Quality. You want at least stereo and 41kHz, which is CD-quality. Higher won't hurt, but it will take up more space and since you're recording from a (generally) poor-quality source, it's probably not necessary.

Set your source to Stereo Mix. Play a sound file to make sure the levels come up. If you don't see red moving bars, it won't record anything.

Once you're sure you'll be recording, clear that track or start a new one. Exit any programs that will cause noise - IM programs, etc. You don't want random beeps in your recording.

Press Record and then start playing the file. You can edit out the silence in the beginning later.

Audacity doesn't export to MP3 by default, so either choose a different format or get the LAME dll here:
http://lame.sourceforge.net/index.php
Audacity will ask you once where to find it (unless you move it of course) so save it in your preferred location and then point Audacity at it.


Disclaimer: As of 10 June 08 this was written from work, so I may have skipped or bungled steps.

Another way to rip music from flash is that as soon as you are playing the flash file online, you can use audio recorder to record the audio. It sounds simpler than using Audacity.
