Howto use it

NB this test takes some minutes to run due to download time:
>>> from candy.candy import Candy
>>> import os

Create a Candy object:

>>> namedownloadedvideo = u'Plone video used for testing purposes'

Let's download it:
Analyzing page 1
downloaded Plone video used for testing purposes

>>> filename = '%s.mp4' % (namedownloadedvideo.replace('/','-'), )
>>> filename in os.listdir(os.path.abspath(os.curdir))

>>> os.remove(filename)
