just got a 404 from youtube but doesn't see it until i printed the plain error in FileDownloader.process_info.
only ERROR: unable to download video (format may not be available) is a little less info i think.
ERROR: unable to download video (format may not be available)
I get the impression youtube-dl has broken completely today due to YouTube changes. I'll have to investigate later when I arrive home.
Youtube no longer provides www.youtube.com/get_video interface and responds on these requests with HTTP 204 No Content. Native youtube flashplayer gets HTTP 204 code as well.
I fixed YoutubeIE by extracting url from fmt_map variable. Pull request pending (yaplik@7393b94).
Also close #35 when closing this ticket.
Fix YoutubeIE after recent YouTube changes (closed by d157d25)
youtube-dl --format=?? xxxxxx
is not working because it's still using old /get_video interface. Patch incomplete. Reopen.
See yaplik@54a7911 for fix.
I thought nobody would notice that I had to backpedal a bit and retag the release about an hour ago. :)

Works for me.
