Downloading youtube videos using python's subprocess

If I do this cmd :

youtube-dl -i -w "ytsearch:funny animals"

Then it will successfully download the first video file with query name funny animals but when I wrote the same thing using python code

from subprocess import call

command = 'youtube-dl -i -w ytsearch:funny animals'
call(command.split(), shell=False)

It downloads funny instead of funny animals.

EMBEDDING Youtube-DL in Python with Batch File

Ok, I know that to get Mp3 files from Youtube-DL in a python program you use

from __future__ import unicode_literals
import youtube_dl

ydl_opts = {

'postprocessors': [{
'key': 'FFmpegExtractAudio',
'preferredcodec': 'mp3',
'preferredquality': '192',
with youtube_dl.v=BaW_jenozKc'])

I have gotten that to work no problem.
