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

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?

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.

There are websites that have managed to fix this problem. See http://www.themp3tube.com

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 : )
