I've never used youtube before.
I received a link to a youtube video <https://www.youtube.com/watch
?v=82_bPWyrPFc> which played fine.

I did not have time to watch the whole video.
How can I download and save it?

# apt-get install youtube-dl
# youtube-dl <some-youtube-URL>
# <some-media-payer> <name-of-downloaded-file>

Just one additional trick: as I learned from this list a while back,
mpv has a convenient hook script that invokes youtube-dl itself,
letting you just do something like:

$ mpv https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjlCUN975C0


Thank you.
