Since youtube.com changes their format too often for stable releases
it is really problematic for some tools like youtube-dl to be packaged
in Stable.  I think it would do much better if it were released in
squeeze-updates (the new volatile).  But it isn't.  I wish it were.

Because of this I always use the youtube-dl from Sid.  It is a script.
It only depends upon ffmpeg being installed.  It runs just fine on
Stable for me so far.  YMMV.  But I use the Sid script on all of my
Squeeze machines.  I update it as needed when youtube.com changes and
breaks the downloader.
