Problems with saving videos

Hi Sebaro.
Maybe you can help me with viewtube... I have 2 issues:
- I'm not able to save webm files directly, but when i click on 'Get' button, I get 'Get Link' button instead, clicking on which a video starts plaing in an emty window. If I select 'Save Link As' button on it, then I'm able to save a video but only with 'videoplayback'as a default filename, which is very strange.

- If I download a file using youtube-dl, file is being saved using correct encoding, cyrillic in my case:
$ youtube-dl -c --no-check-certificate -f best https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLMNE-ziZBU
[youtube] NLMNE-ziZBU: Downloading webpage
[youtube] NLMNE-ziZBU: Downloading video info webpage

But if I download a file with viewtube, it's being saved like this
$ ll

-rw-r--r-- 1 x x 3861114 15 апр. 20:25 ?KA:07K20=8O- !B@0B538G5A:>5 4820==>5 B2>@G5AB2> (?>7=020B5;L=>5 "?, ?0B0;LO ?0=56520) (HD).mp4

Currently I have ru_RU.UTF-8 locale and for iconv recoding I have only ISO-8859-1, ISO646-US(ascii), UTF-8; everything else was ripped off.
$ locale
LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8

ViewTube is Javascript, it depends on server response and browser. Python doesn't.
