As far as I can tell, there is no direct equivalent to Arachne's APM for Links.
But extracting and downloading vids from Youtube with Links is not difficult.

The way I do it is: download the youtube page as "watch.html".
Process that with ytcrack.exe, and then let Links see the output.

I will put together a package with instructions and the files required.
If you use it, you will need to create two subdirectories: download, plugins.
You will also need to edit Links configuration to point "downloads" at \download.

I use an ad-on in Arachne called Googanon. (Google anonymiser)
It takes a Google page of links and turns them into direct links that Google doesn't see.
Otherwise, any links you click on will take you there, but via Google so they can record where you went.

Would that help ?
