Also, the example file (the "Wind" commercial) failed:

gloonie@habibi:~$ gawk -f get_youtube_vids.awk 2mTLO2F_ERY
Parsing YouTube video urls/IDs...
Getting video information for video: 2mTLO2F_ERY...
Could not get video_url for video: 2mTLO2F_ERY
Please goto my website, and submit a comment with an URL to this video, so that I can fix it!

I fixed the program because I needed it myself. Download the latest version.

Thank you for your program/file. I don't know if it is just my connection, but I don't always get the complete download. I have never seen awk before and can not determine the effects of a weak connection directly from the code. I tend to believe that my connection somehow is lost and the (Inet |& getline) returns 0 and exits the while loop in the save file function.
