       NomNom - The graphical media download tool


       NomNom is an application for downloading media from Youtube and other similar media
       websites that require flash to view the media content. Media streaming or downloading can
       be started by dropping an URL onto the application window.

   Project name
       The name of the application refers to the sound effect that is made when eating something
       tasty or nutritious.


   Right-click opens the context-menu
       Most the application features can be accessed via this menu.

   Check the settings (Ctrl+E)
       NomNom will attempt to detect the available commands when you run it the first time. Going
       over the settings before use is recommended. The dialog will not close (by clicking OK)
       unless you have entered everything needed.

   Check that NomNom is set to do what you expect
       Make a note of the combobox widget on the main window. You may choose to either "Download"
       or "Stream" from the widget.

   Drop media page URLs to main window
       You could, for example, have a web browser open from which you then drag the URLs onto the
       main window of NomNom. Alternatively, open the right-click context-menu and choose

       You may also consider making sure that NomNom stays on top of other windows if you are
       working on a small screen. There is an option for this in the application settings.

   NomNom defaults to resume interrupted transfers
       See also the "KNOWN ISSUES" for more about this. You can also choose to overwrite any
       existing media files if you'd prefer this.

   You can grab media page URLs from YouTube feeds
       Choose "Feed..." from the context-menu or hit the key-shortcut (Ctrl+F) to open the


       NomNom supports the following command line options.

       Prints the path to the local user config file and exits.

       Prints the system locale (as returned by Qt) and exits.

       Prints the detected commands and exits.

       Turns on verbose output. Please make a note that NomNom must be configured and built with
       the "--enable-verbose" switch for this to be available in the application.

       Prints the help and exits.

       Prints the version and exits.


   Media page URL
       NomNom feasts on media page URLs. You can drop these URLs to the main window to start the
       process of downloading (or streaming).

       These URLs are known to go around also as "video page URLs".


   Media stream URL
       Not to be confused with "Media page URL". The media stream URL is the URL to the media
       resource that is returned by the quvi(1) command and then used by NomNom to either
       download or stream from it.

   YouTube feeds
       NomNom can read, with the help of umph(1) command, and grab media URLs from YouTube feeds.
       These feeds may be playlists, user favorites and user uploads.

       You can open the user-interface by selecting it from the right-click context-menu
       ("Feed...") or by hitting the key-shortcut (Ctrl+F).

   YouTube format strings
       The YouTube "fmtNN" string IDs are documented at:


   Resuming partially transferred files may fail
       Some websites are known to refuse to work with the HTTP requests to resume a file


       Either check "Always overwrite existing media files" in the settings or remove the
       existing file manually.

   HTTP user-agent
       Some websites refuse to play nice with renegade user-agent strings.


       Make sure both quvi(1) and curl(1) use the same user-agent string.  Note that quvi(1) uses
       "Mozilla/5.0" by default.

   HTTP proxy
       Generally OK, although some proxies may have been configured to "cook up" the HTTP headers
       before they are sent back to the server.  This may sometimes lead to issues with the


       If you use an HTTP proxy, make sure you have configured all of the commands that NomNom
       uses (e.g. quvi(1), curl(1), etc.) to use the same proxy.


   Use configuration files
       Although it is possible to configure custom commands for NomNom to use (via "settings" and
       "commands"), another way is to add/edit the appropriate configuration files for these


        ~/.quvirc ;# refer to the quvi(1) documentation
        ~/.umphrc ;# refer to the umph(1) documentation
        ~/.curlrc ;# refer to the curl(1) documentation

       Same goes for whatever media player you choose to use with NomNom.


   Configuration file
       The location of this file may vary and depends on how Qt was configured.  You can use the
       "--config-path" program option to print it. See also "COMMAND LINE".


       NomNom is free software, licensed under the GPLv3+.
