There's been several tools like this for yoube. I've seen a dozen of em blocked the last year. Use it while it still works!
You can always just grep out the encrypted string for the vid and grab it that way. There are others of varying levels of complexity -- If you can see it, you can grab it.

Find the ID: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SomERaNdOmStrInG
Grab it and get the encrypted file ID

Code: Select all

wget -O info.txt http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SomERaNdOmStrInG 
grep fullscreenUrl info.txt
will give you the encrypted ID (this is the bit they keep changing, just grep for swf and you'll find it though)
Add that to the end of http://www.youtube.com/get_video.php? and wget it

Code: Select all

wget -O downloaded-awesome-vid.flv "http://www.youtube.com/get_video.php?hl=en&video_id=TheHugeEncryptedIDyouGotInTheFirstPart
I wrote a bash script that did all this automagically, but I found the firefox addon and they also changed the format as you say and I haven't updated it to the new format yet.
