what the hell - why should youtube-dl touch flash or a webbrowser?
how would this work without X11 in a terminal?
hint: it would not
youtube-dl is a STANDALONE script and that is why it needs
to get updated after changes in the way youtube works
Yes, you are right, sorry, the script isn't doing what I described, it's more
But my point was that manually copying the file from /tmp doesn't work either,
and one needs to dig deep in order to steal the file from the flash plugin.
