    I am trying to clear my macromedia flash player cache, however I can not find where it is located. Can someone tell me where the flash player cache is located?

    To my knowledge, there is no dedicated Flash cache. You'll want to clear your browser's cache.

    I was looking for this information for about 10 minutes before stumbling over this thread, so I just thought I'd revive it to give a clearcut "yes", if there is saved data from a flash applet it will be in

    "\Users\(username)\Library\preferences\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\(some string [A-Z1-9]+)\(url)\"

    That's where it stores the stuff it's referring to in the right click settings under "Local Storage
    How much information can (url) store on your computer"

    The place where it stores those settings, such as the one above "Local Storage blah blah blah," is in

    "...Flash Player\\#(url)\"
