url keeps on changing

this is a general question regarding MD.
there are some sites which keep on changing the download url every hour or so. To download from them I have to manually monitor the download.
Is there some way that MD can automatically get the new url and resume downloading as soon as a 404 error occurs if I tell it where the new url will be located?

eg:
www.abc.com/pavideos123/xyz.avi

Now the pavideos123 part changes to pavideos456 after 1 hour.
The new value of pavideos* is located at www.abc.com/members/fbnvideos.incl
Can MD get the new pavideos* value and resume the download when it gets a 404 error?

Thanks for looking into the question

Dear Ashish Gupta,

Thank you for writing us.
We will discuss the possibility to add the requested feature to the future versions of Mass Downloader.

Thank you guys for the reply.
I would just like to add one more thing.
If you open www.abc.com/members/fbnvideos.incl then it contains ONLY 1 line which is pavideos* and NOTHING ELSE.

Here is the source code of one such file:

** start**
pavideos231097992777
**end**
