Press start button to run WSMonitor. All Flash movies running within this Browser are monitored, such as the maps.amung.us plugin located on right hand.
To see this content latest Flash Player Plugin is required.
Just open your Flash or Flex app within Browser or Flash Standalone Player and start WSMonitor using
WSMonitor.swf located in folder named "deploy".
Note: WSMonitor and your app have to run with the same Flash Player.

Thanks to Artjom Tarassov, who is one of the smartes Flash programmer I've ever met, for the active exchange of ideas during the last weeks ;-) .
