In OS X, how can I capture sound from a QuickTime video in my browser window? I can't save the video to disk.

No, Wiretap merely installs a kernel extension. If you don't like programs screwing with your system, the APE method is actually less intrusive, since it affects only applications and not the system itself.

Actually, if you're willing to get into the code a tiny bit, you can almost always download quicktime movies to disk. If you can find the URL to the movie, just make a file that has a link to the url and open that in your browser, then right click or whatever. If it's one of those pesky "Click here to launch movie" loader pages, save that movie to disk and open it in a text editor, and you'll see the URL to the actual file in there. Then you can even use iMovie to extract the audio.
