 == What is it? ==
 
-//youtube-dl// is a small command-line program to download videos from YouTube.com and a few more sites. It requires the [[http://www.python.org/|Python interpreter]], version 2.x (x being at least 4), and it's not platform specific. It should work in your Unix box, in Windows or in Mac OS X. The latest version is **2010.07.24**. It's released to the public domain, which means you can modify it, redistribute it or use it however you like.

 I'll try to keep it updated if YouTube.com changes the way you access their videos. After all, it's a simple and short program. However, I can't guarantee anything. If you detect it stops working, check for new versions and/or inform me about the problem, indicating the program version you are using. If the program stops working and I can't solve the problem but you have a solution, I'd like to know it. If that happens and you feel you can maintain the program yourself, tell me. My contact information is at [[http://rg03.wordpress.com/contact-me/|rg03.wordpress.com]].
 
 
 The program is usually invoked as //youtube-dl// followed by options and the video URLs. Listing all the options here would make this text too long, so you can run //youtube-dl --help// and get a summary of them. From that point on you can start experimenting with the different options yourself. The most common ones are -t (or -l) to include the video title in the file name, and either -f or -b to download a high quality version of the video. Also, the -o option can specify the output file name and path. It allows special character sequences that can be used as templates to be replaced. See the "Output template" section for more details.
