I saw a short flash video on a website that I wanted to save. SO I tried using the new QuickTime's Screen Recording feature, but no matter what options I use (Line input or Internal microphone), I get no audio.

Is this because Flash won't allow it, or am I doing something wrong?

    The recording options don't include the option to capture any audio outputs, only audio inputs.

    just figured this out myself today. you're on right track.

    open system pref and go to SOUND - got to OUTPUT tab and choose soundflower (2ch) as your OUTPUT

    open safari and open a new window - drag SWF file into that. it should play in the browser window. hit pause on the video.

    open quicktime. go to NEW SCREEN RECORDING, and use the arrow to the right to open options. Choose sound INPUT as soundflower (2ch). do not raise the volume in the record window - keep it at lowest possible else you'll get an echo.

    you are ready to roll.

    so the browser will be outputting sound to soundflower, whilst the quicktime screenrecord gets input from soundflower. works like a charm. sounds great.

    good luck.

    Or, just take a standard 3.5mm stereo cable and connect your Mac's sound output to the sound input and select the sound in as the source for the screen recording's audio.
