Youtube wont let me download vevo video's anymore

I use to be able to download vevo video's from youtube. I would see the download helper give me the details of how much time is left in the download. All of a sudden it just downloads 0% and when coverting to hard drive it gives me a error.

This is an issue with the Video Download Helper extension. This is copied from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/video-downloadhelper/


September 14th 2012 YouTube issue

We are aware of the problem that occurred on Sept 14th (13th if you are in the US).

This is due to some changes YouTube just made. We are working hard at solving the issue. Please, give us a little bit of time and refrain from downrating the addon.

UPDATE: we now have a temporary workaround. It is available from http://www.downloadhelper.net/install-beta.php?version=4.9.10b2


The add-on page includes this link to the support site:

A Firefox user reported this in another thread:

Download Helper has been fixed. New release 4.9.10 today ! It automatically notified me. One glitch though, there was no link from the notification page for the update. Had to do it thru Mozilla and search for it. But it does work now as good as before.

I had Video Download Helper v. 4.9.9 and I was able to update to v. 4.9.10 from the Firefox Add-ons -> Extensions panel by clicking on the "Gear" box (top right) and selecting "Check for updates". Firefox then found the available update and I was able to install it directly from the Add-ons Manager.
