How to Use

Invoke from command line, passing a Youtube URL (required) and an ITAG quality flag (optional), for example:

python youtubedl.py https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzp8AE8gEfA

or if you want to specify an ITAG value:

python youtubedl.py https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzp8AE8gEfA 22

ITAG Values

Please refer to Fred C. Macall's YTCrack documentation for a table of possible ITAG values (http://users.ohiohills.com/fmacall/ytcrack.txt). By default, low quality .FLV will be downloaded.
