Yes, it is great, and it is still greater with a graphic interface which is Youtube-DLG.https://mrs0m30n3.github.io/youtube-dl-gui/
And by the way I've forgot to mention, you can download even those restricted videos without to login with a Youtube account.
Badass, i was getting fed up with hooktube. because it wont let you do that.
Sadly it looks as if Youtube-dl.exe has stopped working.
Are there any other alternatives?
It happened to me too, but it worked again after I hit the "Update" option.
Google changes around stuff on youtube more times than needed, and to keep up with the changes youtudbe-dl needs to be updated ever so often. And as with >>4764
whenever youtube-dl shows an error an update usually solves it.
i know im late but i use this site, https://y2mate.com/
No add-ons or programs, just copy and paste.
I've Noticed a pattern forming. I've been using this program fro awhile. and any time i try to Download a video with copyrighted music the download instantly fails.
Did susan update something on youtube that could stop this? or was it something the dev did? Any help would be appreciated.
Yeah i've seen this since febuarary but i don't know
>>5050>any time i try to Download a video with copyrighted music the download instantly fails
Can you post a link to try?
sorry didnt see your message.
I Tried this for instance, and it failedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOM7DbOfKxU
Good news I could download it.
The first 2 pics show Youtube-DLG doing a successful download. Did you update it as shown at >>4764
The third and fourth pics show the same download using a broser extension called Video DownloadHelper, it is available for Firefox and the Chrome family browsers like Brave and Dissenter. However because of copyright reasons, downloading from Youtube is only possible with Firefox. Also if you want to download HiRes videos, I believe it is 720p and higher, you'll need a license in Windows, but in Linux it's free.
The fifth pic shows the downloaded file already playing.
By the way, that The Cure disc is a classic.
The "Update" Button does nothing for me.
In Regards to the error, i searched for one similar to mine. to no avail. So i attempted to do a fresh install, but because i'm kinda a boomer, i cant get the new one working.
I can't explain why you can't download.
Look, it just happened. I tried to download https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNbRbkN5G8g
and gave me an error, so I hit the Update option and try to download again, but it gave an error again.
But, I could download it by deleting the failed address and re-entering again.
In case you still can't download, you may try 4K Video Downloaderhttps://www.4kdownload.com/products/product-videodownloader
