I want to download all my private videos, but I when try it I get errors. This is the command line arguments that I'm using:

youtube-dl -u "Username" -p "Password" https://youtube.com/watch?v=58e_io9sIjE

And here is the output:

[youtube] Downloading login page
[youtube] Logging in
[youtube] 58e_io9sIjE: Downloading webpage
[youtube] 58e_io9sIjE: Extracting video information
[youtube] 58e_io9sIjE: Downloading DASH manifest

Any idea how to fix this?

Try using youtube-dl --no-part.
