New version of the Webvideo plugin is available at

The Webvideo plugin allows downloading video files from video sharing
websites, such as YouTube or Google Video, to your hard disk using the
VDR menu interface. This plugin only downloads videos, a separate
plugin, such as xineliboutput or mplayer plugin, is needed to play them.

Changes since the last version:

- Italian translation (thanks to Diego Pierotto)
- Support for mms URLs using libmms
- Guess the file extension from the Content-Type header, not from the
   defaultext tag
- New video service: YLE Areena (the web service of the Finland's
   national broadcasting company). Only partial support, some of the
   URLs do not work with libmms.
- Youtube: Download higher quality MPEG-4 videos
