Automate the download of YouTube videos in Safari 5.1

Great script!
Now, wouldn't be even better to go by extension (.flv) instead of filename (videoplayback)?
Maybe it's harder as you might end up with the "wrong" file being downloaded...

The videoplayback URL doesn't have a filename extension. After the word “videoplayback”, which is the filename, comes a query string (“?” followed by a bunch of name-value parameters).

Also, the desired video file may not be a .flv file. Depending on the selected quality setting in the player, it may be a .mp4 file instead.
