More Info:


  FLVGET is a fixed and improved version of
'Google and YouTube Video to AVI' script. The
script's name has changed because it now offers
support to
  manifold sites and the possibility to add many
more in the future.

  This is a script for Kommander. It downloads a
video from a video website (YouTube, Google Video,
...) and, if is a flash format video, offers
  the option to convert it to AVI format (MPEG4
for video and MP3, MP2 if MP3 isn't available, for
audio) using FFmpeg as back-end.

  This is a plugin-based script. Every plugin
offers support to a website. The available plugins
by default offers support to:
    * Dailymotion
    * Google Video
    * Grinvi.com
    * iFilm
    * Metacafe
    * YouTube
    * YourFileHost

  New plugins can be easily added just placing it
into the 'plugins' directory.


  * Kommander - http://kommander.kdewebdev.org/
  * FFmpeg - http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net/

  Make sure Kommander and FFmpeg are installed in
your system. Unpack the tarball and click or
double-click (according to your configuration) on
the 'flvget.kmdr' file to execute it.

  Note: The whole file must be unpacked to a
directory before executing, can not execute
directly from the tarball file.


  Insert the videolink into the URL entry. Set
your video preferences and click on 'Start'.
