First of all, get-flash-videos is in the official repository, not packman,
so I think you're in the wrong mailing list:)

> Check for updates by running: /usr/bin/get_flash_videos --update

>From what I can see, network:utilities is a digit ahead (1.25.92 vs 1.25.91),
maybe try that one before anything else.

Flash video downloading is not an exact science, so it can break without advance
If upgrading to the latest version doesn't help, I suggest you file a bug report
upstream, possibly with the URL.
