Status in “youtube-dl” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed

Bug description:
Please sync youtube-dl 2010.03.13-1 (universe) from Debian testing (main)

The youtube-dl currently shipping in Ubuntu can't handle a recent YouTube
redesign, and is so essentially useless. Without this sync, there's no point
shipping the package at all.
The sync will fix LP: #485442, #555002

Upstream doesn't ship a changelog.
