  2. Use Software manager to download youtube-dl. I tried downloading via the terminal. It would download the package; however, it would not work on Linux Mint 14. Any case, than just type on the terminal the following:
    youtube-dl "LINK"
    Just replace what is in the quotes with the URL you want but make sure the quotation marks are before and after the URL.
