New version of the Webvideo plugin is available at

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

Changes since the last version announced on this list:

2008-08-21: Version 0.0.4

- Updated Italian translation (thanks to Diego Pierotto)
- Include a workaround for a bug in the libmms header file mmsx.h
   which caused the compilation to fail
- Fix compiler warnings

2008-09-08: Version 0.0.5

- New video service: SVT Play. Contributed by Lars Olsson.
- More robust parsing of .asx files
- Workaround for buggy servers: if the server reports the Content-Type
   of a video file as text/plain do not use it for deciding the file
   extension. Try to extract the extension from the URL instead.
- Sort service names alphabetically
