installed "youtube-viewer-antix" package today to check it out.

launch failed via desktop menu (Sound-n-Music --} GTK Youtube Viewer)
so I tried launching via terminal:
/usr/bin/youtube-viewer
/usr/bin/gtk-youtube-viewer
both yield the same result
Code:
$ gtk-youtube-viewer
Can't locate WWW/YoutubeViewer/RegularExpressions.pm in @INC (you may need to install the WWW::YoutubeViewer::RegularExpressions module) (@INC contains: etc/perl /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.20.2 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.20 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20 /usr/share/perl/5.20 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/gtk-youtube-viewer line 367.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/gtk-youtube-viewer line 367.


project homepage https://github.com/trizen/youtube-viewer
shows plenty of recent commit activity.

(the version packaged for antix is older, from ?Aug 2015)

Here are some notes I gathered while shopping for alternatives today.

tested these tiny yad-GUI youtube downloader/ripper scripts:

github.com/capn-damo/scripts/youtube
(achieved video playback, no sound)

github.com/Misko-2083/scripts/youtube (derived from capn-damo script)
(no-op. I didn't attempt to debug it)

debian jessie package "youtube-dl-gui" has good featureset... but install size with deps is a whopping 52Mb !
+ can select video quality/resolution
+ can (select quality, and file format for conversion) rip audio (with option to keep, or discard, the video)
+ can handle multiple/batch sources in one pass
-- during first launch, without asking permission it announces that it is retrieving latest version (from where? via https?)
- in my quick testing, no sound during playback of mp4 files it created (probably not due to my audio settings; mp4 videos saved via "streamlight" app DO play sound)
