clive is good for grabbing Flash videos and converting them to .mp4.
I'm not sure that there's generally any need to convert them; mplayer is
perfectly happy with files with .flv extensions.
True.  But IIRC, the mp4 files are smaller.

It is my understanding that clive does not convert .flv to .mp4,
but downloads the higher resolution .mp4 directly from Youtube
if that format exists. "clive -L" will download the lower res

That must be new, because I thought it took it's instructions from it's rc file. But mine is 19 months old, and clive has been upgraded and rewritten since then...

$ cat .cliverc
encoder = /usr/bin/ffmpeg -y -i %%%%i %%%%o
always_accept = yes
encode_format = mpeg
