xclip is what you want. Version 0.8 is in the debfarm repo but is twice the size it should be so might be compromised. I compiled version 0.12 and put it up on the ASUI download page . It isn't the full xclip package, only the xclip binary. Copy it to /usr/bin/xclip and chmod 755 it. You must then install the libxmu6 dependancy by running the following command as root:

apt-get install libxmu6
Now change your script to call xclip, those are grave marks around the command, it is the character on the tilde key of a full size keyboard.

cd /media/mmc1/Videos
youtube-dl-x --no-part -f 5 -o "%(stitle)s.%(ext)s" `xclip -out`
Now you can just run that script without any parameters and it will download the selected youtube URL. Enjoy!
