Notes: Doesn't add more information than an entry in the list; usage instructions are documented in the man page and other upstream sources. (Discuss in Talk:Quvi#)

quvi parses media stream URLs for Internet applications that would otherwise have to use adobe flash multimedia platform to access the media streams. The typical examples of this are the different media hosts, such as YouTube, for videos that use this "multimedia platform" to deliver their content.

This can be configured as a default behavior by creating
