I'm sure someone else is going to jump in saying to qoute the URL, but 
and even easier way is to grab the string after watch?v=  in your example :

Retrieving video webpage... done.
Extracting URL "t" parameter... done.
Requesting video file... done.Video data found at
Retrieving video data:   7.8% (   1.59M of 20.41M) at  159.43k/s ETA 02:00

It's a little be easier, IMHO.

If you can't beat your computer at chess, try kickboxing.
