If cclive messes up on you another possibility you could try is 
youtube-viewer.  You can search for videos in interactive mode and you get 
shown only 20 or less at a time.  Each video has a number to its left so 
if you're interested in 17 :d=17 <cr> gets that downloaded for you.  Some 
of us using hughesnet get broken up downloads just viewing the videos so 
want to download them and then listen without interruption.
