Description:

Purpose:
* Displays contextual information about the currently playing media
* Adapted from similar scripts by rsyh93, Jean-Philippe Andre and ale5000

Status:
* MC has only been tested in Windows and Linux so far
- Let me know whether it works on other operating systems
* Only a few local files and remote streams have been tried

Crashes:
* VLC crashes when replaying the same local media file
- Here's the bug report: http://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/5044
* VLC locks up if starting/stopping media when extension is busy
- Here's the bug report: http://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/5070
* VLC locks up when downloading files after track changes
- Here's the bug report: http://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/5056

Issues:
* There's some unwanted crap in with the topic information
- Wikipedia keeps changing its webpage code every few weeks
- I will update MC's filters whenever I see this happening
* The image shown sometimes isn't related to the context
- Google Images sometimes returns totally irrelevant results

Other:
* If you encounter other problems, please provide detailed descriptions
* When the above VLC bugs are fixed, I'll unlock/implement more features

This means the video is missing metadata and the filename format wasn't recognised either.

Both download locations are working for me right now. Maybe you should try again using Internet Explorer this time.
