wget unable to retrieve file, error 303: see other
I am trying to retrieve a file from youtube using the following command:
This produces an error:
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 303 See Other
12:59:37 ERROR 303: See Other.
If I type the same url into mozilla, I am prompted to save the file.
How do I force wget to retrieve the file?
Thanks in advance.

10.3.4 303 See Other
The response to the request can be found under a different URI and
SHOULD be retrieved using a GET method on that resource. This method
exists primarily to allow the output of a POST-activated script to
redirect the user agent to a selected resource. The new URI is not a
substitute reference for the originally requested resource. The 303
response MUST NOT be cached, but the response to the second
(redirected) request might be cacheable.
The different URI SHOULD be given by the Location field in the
response. Unless the request method was HEAD, the entity of the
response SHOULD contain a short hypertext note with a hyperlink to
the new URI(s).

Give it the correct URL, or the right options.
