Re: [dwm] + youtube downloader scripts

Hi All,
Perhaps my first 'release' was premature. In testing I found
a rather atrocious bug which rendered my script useless with some
youtube videos.
I just completed a partial rewrite and have tested it with great success.

UGETURL=$(curl -s $1 |grep fullscreenUrl)
SPLIT=`echo "$URLPARAMS" | sed -e 's/&/\n/g'`
video_id=`echo "$SPLIT" | grep video_id=`
t=`echo "$SPLIT" | grep t=`
echo $URL

The bug came from having the positions or "t" and "video_id" hardcoded via awk.
By splitting "URLPARAMS" and grepping for "t" and "video_id", the script can
extract the information necessary no matter where it is located.

As for setting up a hotkey in w3m, I got distracted from
the manpage by my bugfix but I'll post to the mailing
list as soon as I have it figured out.
