I am unable to access YouTube on http. But I can access the same on an https.

When I executed the command wget https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StJLvbPIvTw it returned the following response:-

--2013-03-04 13:09:28--  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StJLvbPIvTw

Unable to establish SSL connection.

Please guide me on how to download the YouTube videos on HTTPS

Found from some other Question:- Use the URL savefrom.net and type in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StJLvbPIvTw . Press Download button and you can download it in any format :)) No matter whether you access it via HTTPS or HTTP

you can download the chrome app also from here>> http://en.savefrom.net/user.php enter image description here
