Downloading YouTube Videos on Linux

There are many YouTube Downloaders available on net but I use a very simple command line program called 'youtube-dl' to download videos.

Installing youtube-dl

yum install youtube-dl (For Fedora/CentOS)
          sudo apt-get install youtube-dl (For Debian/Ubuntu)

How to download videos
youtube-dl - This command will download the video into your Downloads folder.
If you want to specify the download folder, then use the following command :
youtube-dl -o /home/"YourPATH"
This command can be used for downloading any video and is not limited to YouTube.
