URL to video (not embed) works just fine, but copypasted from Page Source embed URL leads to backtrace:

$ /sources/youtube-dl/youtube-dl
[vimeo] 47019590: Downloading webpage

(youtube-dl latest git:
HEAD is now at a171dbf Merge pull request #386 from FiloSottile/blip)


Now you can use youtube-dl "" --referer and it will download the video.
