Hello, Alan :-) 

Did you not receive my May 25th e-mail?

It's not necessary (anymore, anyway...) to install Linux, 
as now exist win32 rtmpdump binaries that can handle 
fine > 4GB FLV files...
Furthermore, GiP 2.94 was patched to download HD 
files (720p) via the hls modes, where rtmpdump does 
not come into play at all - the saving to disk is done by ffmpeg; 
instead of "--modes=flashhd" use "--modes=hlshd"
