Download YouTube videos from Terminal

If you are a YouTube fan, and have always wanted to download the tons of videos available online from Linux based distros, there are quite a few good options available, like Flashgot (Firefox plugin), etc.

However, if you are of the CLI-types, and prefer a Terminal based solution, just download and install youtube-dl

su -c ‘yum install youtube-dl’

And you are done.. now use it in the following way and enjoy 🙂
