Set your browser to use an HTTP proxy, and set the proxy to debug mode
so it prints out every HTTP request...  

It would be very nice if someone stripped-down gnash or swfdec to just
parse out the video URLs, but I haven't seen it yet.  I started
looking at the SWF video playback format docs some time ago, but I'm
certainly not up for that much of a project.

Ha. I'm the idiot.
