Q1How do I extract audio from a SWF (flash file)?

I have a SWF video (flash file) and I want to get an embedded mp3 file out of the flash. So I can put the audio song into my iPod Nano, but how?

Q2I wonder if it is possible to download/save only the audio component in a SWF file?

Many a times, if the flash file is too large and would occupy much space on the disk, I would prefer to download only the audio part.
