Use youtube-dl to download video with output Youtube Title

youtube-dl -c -o "%(title)s" -f 18
Before you use this command you want to replace everything after the "https:" with the url of the video which you want to download. This string and it's switches will use "youtube-dl" to download the Youtube url into the directory/folder where it is called from. It will output the video using the same name as Youtube uses.
