Latest clive can't download YouTube videos

After recent update in Arch clive can't download videos any more, outputs an error:
Checking ...error: /usr/share/quvi/lua/website/youtube.lua:111: no match: fmt_url_map
Tried to downgrade clive and it didn't help. Google doesn't contain info about fixing it, they say it's a bug. Is it just a bug or there is a way to fix it in current version?

Are you sure it is the clive update?

It is happening with other distributions as well as Arch. (e.g. Fedora14 x86-64). My clive has not been changed since May.

ll /usr/bin/clive /usr/share/quvi/lua/website/youtube.lua
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 10197 May 22 21:00 /usr/bin/clive
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 4403 May 22 21:14 /usr/share/quvi/lua/website/youtube.lua

Maybe a dependency has been changed. That would explain why your rollback to an earlier version did not work.

I downloaded a file from youtube Jun 23 OK, but when I tried the same command today I got the same error as you. The file plays directly from youtube. And it happens with all other files I try to download from youtube, but they play OK directly.

In friendship
