For those occasions where you don't have the bandwidth to watch something without buffering: youtube-dl.

On a Mac:

  1. sudo pip install youtube-dl
  2. brew install libav
  3. youtube-dl <url>

If bandwidth is a real pain and you just want the audio...

youtube-dl --extract-audio --audio-format mp3 <url>

To update:

sudo pip install -U youtube-dl
