Why can't my YouTube Video Downloaders download VEVO vids anymore?

Posted

I have two Firefox downloaders - Easy YouTube Video Downloader 6.8 and 1-Click YouTube Video Downloader 2.0.6. Both work fine on videos that are not VEVO. I was able to until a few days ago. Any ideas?

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.7 r700
  • The QuickTime Plugin allows you to view a wide variety of multimedia content in web pages. For more information, visit the QuickTime Web site.
  • Displays Java applet content, or a placeholder if Java is not installed.

Application

  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0

YouTube may have changed the way such videos are served.

Can you post a link to a page with a video where the extensions aren't working?

Yes, that doesn't seem to be working with the DLH extension.
What worked in this case is the "Pop out" player.
That allowed to save the video as webm format and I was able to play this file.

Can you post a link to the Pop-Out player?

You can right-click the video player to see this in the right-click context menu.

It was a Youtube update that messed things up a few days ago.

I think we have a winner : D Thanks, Andy.

Unlike mp3tube, that particular add-on lets you download the video in full WebM format : )

Thanks Andy. Works here too

This worked until this morning. VEVO vids will not download anymore.

Awesome. Thanks, Joe.

I noticed that KeepVid.com is working again too. That was what I was using before this whole mess started.

Hopefully there's no more problems from here on out, but I'm expecting there will be. But as long as there's at least one way to download these videos in full WebM format, I'll be more than happy. Thanks to everyone involved : )

Can someone explain the manual way to download new VEVO videos? I was always able to download Youtube videos by inspecting network traffic in Firebug and there was an HTTP GET request to the FLV file. Is the video link hidden in the source code of the HTML tag or is the video hashed in several parts?

Yes YouTube keeps updating their website and some changes in the new web page code is preventing firefox add-ons from working. The author of the add-on needs to release an update to make it work. There are other apps that will do this that are absolutely free. I personally like "Download YouTube to MP3" it is updated on the regular and seems to always work. Download YouTube to MP3 I'm sure you already have but just-in-case you haven't make sure you download the latest version for firefox of the extension or add-on that is not working ;)
