Additionally, you can get youtube-dl from here:

Just make sure you have Python 2.6, 2.7, or 3.2+ installed.
YOu can then run it from ~/bin. Keep in mind it also includes
an updater (-U), so in worst case, you don't need to update
it via ports.

It's also worth mentioning that youtube-dl doesn't just work
for YouTube, but for many others, too. It's really helpful
when things get... de-published. ;-)

And of course it allows you to watch videos comfortably in
your favourite media player, you won't have to get angry
about crappy browser plugins and their lack of usability.
I think just _this_ point is more than enough to justify
the use of this great tool.
