cURL is the premiere cli download utility, it can with proper use download pretty much anything...including youtube videos.
I like the simplicity of wget, but without a doubt cURL is more feature rich and overall powerful. It is also built into php (plugin), this is probably the biggest single use of cURL.
I like it, I like wget, I like aria2c. I use them all and applaud the developers of each one. I throw the name of other cli download applications for reference, otherwise how would you rate it if you had never used the competition :)
Five well earned stars.....It is that good, really.

You're forgetting that cURL is not only a commandline application, but also a powerful libcurl library that is perfect for making web content accessible for your application.
I've used both libsoup and libcurl and i find libcurl to be significantly less buggy.
