Many thanks to all of you, on-list and off-list.

I've installed youtube-dl a long time ago, the very moment when I first read
about it on this list.

I've also seen that the '-h' option did tell a lot of things, except the
the reqirement to quote the URL...

Now I get the following:

me at pollux:~ % youtube-dl -v ""
[debug] Proxy map: {}
[youtube] Setting language
[youtube] 6xuubjIrYkc: Downloading video webpage
[youtube] 6xuubjIrYkc: Downloading video info webpage
[youtube] 6xuubjIrYkc: Extracting video information

ERROR: unable to download video
me at pollux:~ % 

Unable(!) to see the reason.
