For use with YouTube:

-------flv2avi--------
#!/bin/bash

for i in "$@"; do
mencoder -oac pcm -ovc copy "$i" -o "${i%.flv}.avi";
done;
------EOF-------

mplayer has problems with audio seeking in FLV files, so a good choice
is to convert it to PCM. Reencoding it to MP3 would not be worth the
effort (heck, quality already sucks with youtube videos, no need to
make it worse).
