I built this tool because I was interested in saving conference videos from confreaks for viewing later, like when I have time to kill on busses and planes.
You can try it out right away with
$ gem install get_freaky
take a look at the featured video with
$ get_freaky featured
You'll see a short description of the current featured video as well as be asked if you'd like to download it.
See the github repo for the source and some more documentation/examples.
This is my first gem and it's still really basic so I'd love to get people's feedback on how to improve/refactor the code or what additional features could be useful.
