I am not an html programmer.
I was wondering if such a programmer would download
the web page (wget) and be able to look at it's contents
and zero in on the exact location of the video, and download
it from there, rather than from the link provided above.
AFAIK that's basically what youtube-dl does. It's just a Python script
that scrapes the YT web page.
The problem isn't with the script, it's with you being in the wrong
country. The way round it is to be in a different country, e.g. by using
a VPN. A number of such services are available, usually for a cost.
