Any video posted on Youtube will work for youtube-dl . It will snap the 
file in .flv format which can be player only with VLC and MPlayer. 
Nothing else. Clive is capable of snapping videos from Google video as 
well and has an additional capabilities to converting
.flv files to more friendly video formats like .MPG

So what do you think? That I can not watch YouTube because I use 
FreeBSD? Funny...

There are at least 4 other way to watch videos on YouTube on FreeBSD 
running machine. The one I proposed is the simplest.
