There are some logical problems with getting movies from any HTML page (I've talked about these too many times to recount now), and I simply don't believe that it can be done in a consistent and reliable manner unless the videobloggers change the way they link to their own video files. That script may work today, for the entry you're adding today, but I highly doubt that it's a solution that works for HTML documents in general. And *that* is what we need. I can write something that grabs any video link from a website in two minutes, but that's useless - we need to get the *right* videos. We simply can't make that distinction today with the way people are linking to their videos today. That's why I've been talking about this rel="alternate" for so long. That's why I've been trying to explain the different kinds of links. I can't check out the code used in the script. It gets executed on the server so none of it reaches my browser. - Andreas -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt;
