I would like to bring to your attention a competitor to videoob.

cclive is a tool to download which uses libquvi, a library which supports more
than 30 video websites. It is written in C++, and backends are written in lua.

There are less features than weboob and videoob, as it only get direct URL to
video file or stream, not any meta-data. But the approach is interesting,
because lua files are light.

I think we should ease backend creation, and avoid copy/paste from other
backends. Perhaps there are too many files in a backend, or many classes
(backend + brother + video + pages) for little quantity of code. The more
meaningful example is radios, where there are really few lines exploded in many

I'll try to rewrite radios backends in one files each.
