My sister sometimes asks me how to convert youtube videoclips to mp3. She can only browse the internet, write cv's, and listen to winamp music :)
She is often interested in some exotical teams like "Alive", but no album can be buyed in europe.
So, I've created a (simple?) tool for browser - just wait until the clip is completed (full downloaded) and click a icon in browser toolbar to save the mp3, or whole clip as flv.

How it works:
The foreground window is assumed as browser window (usually IE). The caption contains current clip title, and site url contains id of the clip.
Having the clip id, we can search for file in browser cache using wininet api's. If found, we can just copy it, or extract the audio/video (mp3+avi).
For now it supports only Youtube and Google.

If the foreground window is not a browser, or current site is unsupported - the program displays a dialog with some info and installer buttons.
