The following patch adds support for HTTP streaming of the stupid useless videos
from YouTube.com (Flash Video). I know, GoogleVideo also have stupid videos that might need to
be playable some day.

YouTube provides videos under the following form :

which are HTML page that need to be parse to retrieve the hidden URL of the video.

This patch does so.

Is it appliable flameless, with or without minor/major modifications or has to go to /dev/null ?
Go on, i'm getting cold :)
