I use the Easy Youtube Video Downloader addon for Firefox. It creates a Download button on the youtube video page itself, and the download it starts can be paused and resumed.

Might have to use a online you tube video down-loader like maybe. I'm not sure though how good it is for dropped connection reset though, like you are experiencing.

I guess you tried cclive also in Debian? Not sure if this will help either but you can watch I guess. It looks like it's kinda new.
