The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.

Suppose you want to download the top 5 most watched videos with title containing "FOOBAR" in category Music. Using the youtube feeds protocol you can do something like this:
| xmllint --format -|grep "media:player"|cut -d\" -f2 |clive -y -s
xmllint --format will obviously format the downloaded XML file so we can easily extract the needed URL of the video located under the "media:player" tag.
Next we pipe the output the clive which will know how to handle the url and retrieve the flv file. Optionally you can pipe it to get_youtube_vids.awk if it accepts downloading multiple files, however clive has more options and can even encode the vids after download :)

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
