Please add perl-net-http to dependencies.

I will release a new version of youtube-viewer in the next few days and I'll also add those dependencies in the PKGBUILD.
Thank you guys!

I have had also problem with running youtube-viewer. After installation perl-http-message and also perl-lwp-protocol-https package everything works. The package perl-http-message is no more dependency for perl-libwww package. When I have had only installed perl-http-message package I had one line error:

Can't use an undefined value as a SCALAR reference at /usr/bin/youtube-viewer line 1494.

Best regards.

'perl-http-message' should be a dependence of 'perl-libwww' (at least it was. (Arch Linux bug?)) and 'perl-lwp-protocol-https' is optional. Your error is strange... Please run it in debug mode (youtube-viewer --debug) and copy-paste here the URL which appears. Thanks.

Also reinstalling the youtube-viewer may fix the problem...

I'm wondering why all these packages are not part of the dependencies.
