Flayer makes Flash-Videos usable for Amiga Users
Robert William's ARexx-Skript Flayer makes flash videos, which are offered for example from the popular video hoster, usable for users of AmigaOS. The script searches within the indicated website for the url of the video and saves it at the local hard disk, wherefrom it can be watched with MPlayer.

The offered first beta release needs AWeb and MPlayer (experimental preview 3 or newer) and doesn't support streaming yet. Because it is a pure ARexx-script, theoretically Flayer should work under Morphos as well. (cg) (Translation: tz)
