I've found that the youtube-dl in repos (whether Debian or Ubuntu) is
*always* horribly out-of-date. I just installed my copy from git:
git clone https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl.git
echo export PATH=$HOME/bin/youtube-dl:$PATH >> .bashrc
then whenever things break, my first line of defense is
git reset --hard HEAD
which seems to get me what I need.
Youtube changes their stuff frequently enough in ways that break
youtube-dl that this is the only program I run directly from source.
