Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm not looking for a software or site to download youtube but for an opensource script in bash or any which is up todate as youtube often changes the download url.

I've found this but seems deprecated: http://linux.byexamples.com/archives/302/how-to-wget-flv-from-youtube/ http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread104419.html
