I need to download the sound from the Google's doodle. I saw this post on Superuser that explains how to download a doodle for offline usage and I tried it, but the sounds are not included in the download. So, anyone knows how to download the sounds from Google's doodle?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
This is a work around; Download and install Audacity which is a sound recording program.
Now, ensure you have the option to record "what you hear" or "stereo mix" by going to control panel, open sounds and then open the mixer. Selecting recording and select 'stereo mix'. If you're on W7 (maybe Vista) then you may have to download Realtek sound driver to get this option and then follow these steps:
Now, hit record in Audacity, and then play the Google Doodle. All system sound will be recorded (but please note, if you were, for example, to get a skype call, the ring of the skype call will also be recorded as this method of recording records 'what you hear'. Also, the volume of your system sound affects the record level so adjust as needed).
Right, the above was all from memory (other than the bullets) so let me know how it goes and sorry if instructions are not 100% accurate/clear.
After inspecting the source of the page using Google Chrome, it looks like the sounds are all stored in this SWF file - https://www.google.com/logos/swf/halloween12.swf
If you can decompile/extract the sound files out of there, then you can get all the sound files.
