yaydl (yet another youtube downloader) is a commandline-oriented tool that allows you to download videos from video sharing Web sites (currently YouTube, Myvideo, Dailymotion, Clipfish, video.google, Metacafe, Sevenload, and Vimeo). The use of external programs like mplayer or ffmpeg enables it to re-encode the videos or to rip the audio off a video.

If you're one of the few yaydl users out there, you might have noticed that I didn't put too much effort in the project recently. As I don't see any chance of maintaining yaydl in an appropriate way over the next months, I decided to discontinue the whole thing. Feel free to use the script as long as it works, but please don't email me any bug reports or the like. If you're looking for an alternative, I suggest you take a closer look at clive or youtube-dl.
