Dear Lazyweb: scrape video from IO9?

Dear Lazyweb: The folks at IO9 have some great videos, but they're not
presently embeddable — while they're waiting for the next rev of their
player, I need a way to embed them here on BB. I'm
looking for a simple way of scraping and reposting (or
simply embedding) the videos they post there. Cross-platform is great —
but I need Ubuntu-friendly tools if I'm gonna be able to use it. Kibbitz
