Gem unpack youtube

I was told by support that I cannot get a listing of remote gems. Ok. So I tried to install a gem un vendor/gems in my rails project:

[edendale]$ gem unpack youtube
ERROR: Gem ‘youtube’ not installed.

Could somebody please explain why this does not work? Perhaps the only way is to package a gem on my local machine and install it by hand? I hope that is not the case. Thanks.
