Bug#542159: clive: please add support for extracting video urls

Package: clive
Version: 2.2.4-1
Severity: wishlist

clive seems to be like the perfect video downloading application.
However extracting video (data) urls does not seem to be among the
supported features (not even by parsing debug output). I imagine
something like youtube-dl -g URL which just prints the url of the flv
file. This can then easily be passed to mplayer and thus saves bandwidth
when I abort playing the video early. The reason for not using
youtube-dl is that clive supports more sites.
