I've been using a youtube downloader, which has stopped downloading! I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and sevaral different
downloaders, but none will work! Any opinions?

Is it up to date? Try deleting it and downloading it again, maybe one of the files got corrupted

I had this problem and found by googling that it is because of something youtube have done. (Also standalone program "youtube downloader" has stopped wortking) On a recommendation what I have used tonight and very successfully is this website

As superhoops says, this happens when You Tube makes a change, as a result YTDownloader has to create a 'fix'.

It's a regular occurrence and just a question of waiting until YTD finds the solution. Which they normally do in a reasonably short period of time.

Thanks for the info! I've been using a stand alone "grabber", after a lot of trails I've settled on "Moyea" until youtube get it sorted!

I've just recieved an update from downloadhelper, in Firefox, to put right what youtube had messed up!

You Tube Downloader, version 2.5.7, now available which cures the problem.
