Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:
in place of "output-filename.mp4" put the name you want the file to be named with.
in place of "youtube-video-link" put the link of the Video page eg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AclA-7YntvE
in place of "format-number" put the number of the file format you would like
How to get the "format-number"
to get format number type in below command before running this command
youtube-dl -F "youtube-video-link"
and it will list all the available formats with the format number, like to download in 360p mp4 use the number "18"
To automatically let it fetch the best quality available just remove the -f "format-number" and you are good to go.
There are 6 alternatives - vote for the best!
If you can do better, submit your command here.
