It works here (with a single-quoted URL), but there's no '-b' option in the current version. I suspect your youtube-dl is out of date.

The download is a .flv format. Do you have flash setup correctly?

You could try savevid.com and switch formats.

You could try from your desktop, go to where your download is and right click and open with firefox to see if it plays.

It is an old version. You might want to try this one.

The proper command is:
Code:
yum localinstall youtube-dl-2011.08.04-1.fc15.noarch.rpm

or 

rpm -Uvh youtube-dl-2011.08.04-1.fc15.noarch.rpm
To see which version is installed:
Code:
rpm -q youtube-dl

Use:
Code:
rpm -q youtube-dl
The command you are using is asking if a specific package is installed, not what version is installed. The commands are not the same.


If necessary, first:
Code:
yum remove youtube-dl

I am not a programming savvy guy, so I get used to downloading videos with different free programs and easy tricks.

Actually you can get the video file after watching the whole YouTube video, just check the browser’s temporary Internet folder, and copy the flv video file then paste into local folder.

Or record videos from YouTube with certain video download tool like Firefox add-on, streaming video recorder, Keepvid.com
