i updated the plugin with new Python packages on Arch and everything was
good but i did an error updating Mplayer and FFmpeg since i couldn't
reproduce files after download.

Well, now i can see all the files downloaded from YouTube but without audio.

Can be possibile to put and option that convert the file adter download
in a mpeg file?

Thanks for your nice work,
