         use WWW::YouTube::Download;

         my $client = WWW::YouTube::Download->new;
         $client->download($video_id);

         my $video_url = $client->get_video_url($video_id);
         my $title     = $client->get_title($video_id);     # maybe encoded utf8 string.

DESCRIPTION

       WWW::YouTube::Download is a library to download videos from YouTube. It relies entirely on
       scraping a video's webpage and does not use YT's /get_video_info URL space.

METHODS

       new()
             $client = WWW::YouTube::Download->new;

           Creates a WWW::YouTube::Download instance.

       download($video_id [, \%args])
             $client->download($video_id);
             $client->download($video_id, {
                 fmt      => 37,
                 filename => 'sample.mp4', # save file name
             });
             $client->download($video_id, {
                 filename => '{title}.{suffix}', # maybe `video_title.mp4`
             });
             $client->download($video_id, {
                 cb => \&callback,
             });

           Download the video file.  The first parameter is passed to YouTube video url.

           Allowed arguments:

           "cb"
               Set a callback subroutine, SEE LWP::UserAgent ':content_cb' for details.

           "filename"
               Set the filename, possibly using placeholders to be filled with information
               gathered about the video.

               "filename" supported format placeholders:

                 {video_id}
                 {title}
                 {user}
                 {fmt}
                 {suffix}
                 {resolution}

               Output filename is set to "{video_id}.{suffix}" by default.

           "file_name"
               DEPRECATED alternative for "filename".

           "fmt"
               set the format to download. Defaults to the best video quality (inferred by the
               available resolutions).

       playback_url($video_id, [, \%args])
             $client->playback_url($video_id);
             $client->playback_url($video_id, { fmt => 37 });

           Return playback URL of the video. This is direct link to the movie file.  Function
           supports only "fmt" option.

       prepare_download($video_id)
           Gather data about the video. A hash reference is returned, with the following keys:

           "fmt"
               the default, suggested format. It is inferred by selecting the alternative with
               the highest resolution.

           "fmt_list"
               the list of available formats, as an array reference.

           "suffix"
               the filename extension associated to the default format (see "fmt" above).

           "title"
               the title of the video

           "user"
               the YouTube user owning the video

           "video_id"
               the video identifier

           "video_url"
               the URL of the video associated to the default format (see "fmt" above).

           "video_url_map"
               an hash reference containing details about all available formats.

           The "video_url_map" has one key/value pair for each available format, where the key is
           the format identifier (can be used as "fmt" parameter for "download", for example) and
           the value is a hash reference with the following data:

           "fmt"
               the format specifier, that can be passed to "download"

           "resolution"
               the resolution as widthxheight

           "suffix"
               the suffix, providing a hint about the video format (e.g. webm, flv, ...)

           "url"
               the URL where the video can be found

       ua([$ua])
             $self->ua->agent();
             $self->ua($LWP_LIKE_OBJECT);

           Sets and gets LWP::UserAgent object.

       video_id($url)
           Parses given URL and returns video ID.

       playlist_id($url)
           Parses given URL and returns playlist ID.

       user_id($url)
           Parses given URL and returns YouTube username.

       get_video_url($video_id)
       get_title($video_id)
       get_user($video_id)
       get_fmt($video_id)
       get_fmt_list($video_id)
       get_suffix($video_id)
