4 Замечательная программа! Работает великолепно!. Пояснение для новичков как с ней работать: После установки программы, откройте Терминал и введите команду youtube-dl и веб-ссылку на видео с youtube. Например, youtube-dl https://www. ... После загрузки, ваше видео будет сохранено в вашей рабочей директории: /home/user. Более детальнее смотрите тут: https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=199&v=3gDCsHLic9Q (Алексей Романов)

4 Almost perfect - as a finn I'll give all 5 stars when support for public TV channels - YLE Areena (areena.yle.fi), MTV Katsomo (katsomo.fi) and Nelonen (ruutu.fi) - currently also DownloadHelper for FireFox has issues with these and separate extra CLI utilies have to be used to get them. But I'm positively hopeful that they will be implemented: it's clear that the developer aims for universal functionality with single tool :)

5 If you found an error format video not available, just try running your youtube-dl with this code on your terminal. youtube-dl -u username -p password "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atz_aZA3rf0" -i. This happen because youtube needs verify your age. make sure you already have an account on youtube. This software works perfectly on my linuxmint12 lisa. Thanks

5 Great program ! FYI: its a comand line program run from terminal, see link for usage. Also,your better off downloading the latest version from the website and manually installing it in /usr/local/bin ,as the repository version isn't updated frequently. Youtube seems to change their format routinely to interfere with download programs.

5 Very nice. For those of you new to it and would like to know the commands you need to use just type man youtube-dl. my favourite command is youtube-dl -b -t which downloads the best quality (-b) and the title of the video too (-t). awesome. With minitube it becomes too good.
