I've never used it before, but have you taken a look at the man-page for it?
Bash:
man youtube-dl
The man-page for it can also be found online here:

It seems fairly trivial.....

To download a video, you run:
Bash:
youtube-dl {video-url}
Where {video-url} is the url of a video on youtube.
e.g.
Bash:
youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sXtRCnNe2c
And it has a few other options for extracting the audio from videos, or listing the formats that are available.
