    OK guys I need some help here. I have Any Video Converter Professional to download vids but there is only like 10% of the videos I can download, and usually terrible ones too. What do you do in order to download any video from youtube? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Needs: Perl , LWP.

    perl script.pl http://youtube.com/watch?v=vCsQLQ00hvs

    it will download and save to Title .FLV ...
    If you want it in a different format, you have to handle it yourself :D

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use LWP::Simple;
    use LWP::UserAgent;
    
    print "starting first page retrievaln";
    my $urlin  = shift || "http://youtube.com/watch?v=vCsQLQ00hvs";
    my $content = get( $urlin  ) or die "argh : $!n";
    print "done first page retrieval : $urlinn";
    
    my $infile     = ($content =~ m{<title>([^<]+)</title>})[0] . '.flv';
    my ($video_id) = ($content =~ /watch_fullscreen?(?:.*?)video_id=([^&]+)/);
    my ($t_id)     = ($content =~ /watch_fullscreen?(?:.*?)t=([^&]+)/);
    
    my $get_url = "http://www.youtube.com/get_video?video_id=$video_id&t=$t_id";
    
    print "gettin video file : $infilen";
    
    $| = 1;
    open(IN,"> $infile") or die "$_n";
    my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new();
    my $received_size = 0;
    my $url = $get_url;
    print "Fetching $urln";
    my $request_time = time;
    my $last_update = 0;
    my $response = $ua->get($url,
                            ':content_cb'     => &callback,
                            ':read_size_hint' => 8192,
                           );
    print "n";
    close IN;
    
    
    sub callback {
      my ($data, $response, $protocol) = @_;
    
      my $total_size = $response->header('Content-Length') || 0;
      $received_size += length $data;
      print IN $data;
      my $time_now = time;
      return unless $time_now > $last_update or $received_size == $total_size;
      $last_update = $time_now;
      print "rReceived $received_size bytes";
      printf " (%i%%)", (100/$total_size)*$received_size if $total_size;
      printf " %6.1f/bps", $received_size/(($time_now-$request_time)||1)
      if $received_size;
    }
