comment How to download facebook videos by using 'youtube-dl' in linux?
but they are needed when the URL contains the '&' character! it has a meaning to the shell that the command should run in the background and the rest of the line is a new command. see the lines in your screenshot starting with [2] and [3]. you were just lucky that your URL worked in its truncated form (i.e. till the first '&') and the other parts did not do any harm.

comment Switch encoding of terminal with a command
@joseph_morris let me point you to the third paragraph of the question being answered. the OP did know how to change the encoding using the menu commands of the terminal emulator (that you call the 'normal' way) but he was looking for a CLI alternative.
