Gmediafinder is a software to search stream and / or download files form youtube, dailymotion, vimeo, and others engines without flash.

It support fullscreen mode (double click on the video or f key/esc), visualisations and use the gstreamer engine to play sounds and videos.

For youtube you can select you prefered resolution and it give priority to webm(vorbis/vp8) and mp4 format for video seeking! (and lower cpu usage than flv…)
