in thread using WWW::YouTube::Download?

I have looked at get-flash-videos recent issues and the issue 453 suggests to use a recent version from git. I have been able to download youtube videos with this recent version.

    I had the same problem with error 404 when downloading YouTube videos and I solved it.

    After frustrating, cursing, losing a few hairs and having a few more turn gray, I found the problem.

    When you copy a URL from a YouTube video in Firefox (or presumably another browser) you get something like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=zLHc8NR_v-8

    you want to remove this portion of the string: feature=player_detailpage&v=

    The above string is for the browser, or for flash player, but is not a part of the video address string.

    YOU WANT THIS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLHc8NR_v-8#t=136s

    When I called download with this string (with "feature_player" removed) it worked like a charm.
