Nope. I do not even know if it is on your hard drive.

I do not know.

Flash considers users to be the scum of the earth. 
I expect that PBS (not Austin City Limits) has decided 
to make saving the stream difficult. Search for flash in 
add-ons for Mozilla/IceWeasel. Try the different downloaders. 

Here's something to try. 

Before going to the web site for the video, execute: 

   man find
   find / >before.files

As you are watching the video, execute: 

   find / >while.files

The compare them: 

   man diff
   diff before.files while.files | less
