I think they have already obfuscated things.
I used to use the Video Download Helper plugin for Firefox, but that
stopped working for me. Then I installed youtube-dl and tried to use it
about a week ago, but received the following:
[youtube] sgN7fUGPgMM: Downloading webpage
[youtube] sgN7fUGPgMM: Downloading video info webpage
ERROR: sgN7fUGPgMM: YouTube said: Invalid parameters.
I tried downloading it from the yt-dl.org page, but that version gave me
the save results. I use it to watch karate kata when I don't have
internet connectivity, but it looks like that is no longer possible.
