Crank up the sound.

Now, WHERE in the hell, is that background sound coming from?

No, I've downloaded ALL .swf that you find (including the one that is 2+ MB) and DECOMPILED it. There is NO music that represents the background one.

Plus, there is no LINK to that music!

How in the world, is that music reaching the website (and is it even possible to get a link to that ?).

And no, its not a RTSP feed either... or any of the other newfangled transfer protocol...

Hmmm, at least it must be flash, because if you open the page without a flashplugin, there is no sound at all.
If the page were HTML5, I'd say <audio>, but it's XHTML so I bet it's flash.

edit: I opened the page now with flash. Which music do you mean? All I hear is a constant murmur. It's the sound this glowing thing makes.

Howdy,

Thats the funny thing about SWF files. They compile funny.
If you decompile a SWF, it doesnt readily show you some stuff
and makes it difficult to figure out where it is due to multiple "calls"
for the lack of a better word.

I believe the the file starts out as a FLA (I dont quite remember),
And then compiled and outputted? as a SWF.

I have even had the "source" FLA and had troubles dissecting it.

And dont waste your time with decompilers that claim to
convert it to flash. They dont work. I spent months last year
screwing around with SWF files and I hate them.

Alex... HOW did you get that link?

Woody... what do you mean? Is this SWF a 'sorta' zip/rar file... I mean, a container? So why should it not decompile everything that's in it?.... or you mean its like an EXE... izzatso?

You may catch it with Firebug extension of Firefox. Enable firebug and then enable Net panel and reload the page. You will see mentioned sound file in Flash tab of Net panel.

Thanks Laptonic... I went to Firefox and selected Tools->Page Info, but it had not shown up there.

I catched it with Google Chrome. Ctrl-Shift-I, switch to Network, and reload the page.

Or wget to get the html page..

Interestingly, if you use Opera Dragonfly on the site (or maybe also Firebug), you can edit the stored (25 year) cookie for 'soundvolume' so it is in effect the next time you load the page. I guess that's kind of useless parlour trick...

Well, it's kinda like an EXE but with obfuscated code I suppose.
It's difficult to explain in that all the components are obviously in the SWF
but unraveling it is the challenge.

No one makes a tool that is 100% successful to decompile SWF files.

you can use hex-editor for rip out mp3/jpeg/other files from decompressed SWF file
