The sites in question require you to play the content through their 
official Flash players.  Players that use RTMP streaming will only use a 
limited buffer in memory.  Players that use simple file downloads will 
download to a temporary file in your cache, which will be deleted when 
the player is closed.  While in theory, you could queue up dozens of 
players ahead of time, and just let them sit in the background waiting 
to be played for days or even weeks, in practice that would just be foolish.
