This is the story:

Some online video streaming sites like won't allow Adobe Flash Player to cache the streaming videos on your Hard Disk, so the users can't watch them offline.
Instead they use RAM Disk to cache the streaming videos.

I was wondering, if there is a way to take off the data files I want, from the RAM and store them on my hard disk...
(May be by mounting the whole RAM as a filesystem or by a code)

I know there are video downloaders out there, but this question is for educational purpose, and may also apply to the other kind of data types rather than videos.

Has anyone got a clue..?

Thanks in advance.

Try using DDD, a Front end of GDB, in which you can view and edit the contents of RAM. I'm not sure this is what you really need, but try check it out
