New version of the Webvideo plugin is available at 

The Webvideo plugin is a tool for browsing and downloading videos from
popular video sharing websites, such as YouTube and Google video, using
VDR menu interface or a command line client. With the help of
xineliboutput plugin the videos can be played directly without
downloading them first.

Important changes:

- Simplified building: better Makefile, fixed instructions in README
- German translation (contributed by cnc at gmx.de)
- Fixed segfault when a menu title is NULL (this happened for
   example on YouTube search results page)
- Try to start daemon process automatically if can't open a connection
- Ability to cancel downloads (through the status screen)
- Fixed problem with downloads never finishing if the server sends
   shorter file than expected
