another cheat is to watch proxy logs, and see what goes by.  To download
trailers for off-line viewing from Apple's QT Trailers site, I start
downloading the trailer, kill the download (by browsing back) and see the
proper URL for the movie in my Squid logfile.  It's also useful for seeing
Flash movies reference other Flash movies, so if you grab one, you know to
grab others.
