Why does you tube prevent music video downloads?
I have figured out that music companies do not want you tube users to download videos to their hard drives or jump drives. Well, I want to. All the other videos work fine. I am using Firefox 18.0 with video download helper, and every time I download a music video, it says zero bytes. Zero byte download files, zero byte music video file. So I found the workaround to this problem to be save vid dot com, where I can enter the url to the music video I want to download and save it to my disk. Why does Firefox not allow this. Why does you tube not allow this. Money must be involved. Like I said, there must be some stupid reason why they don't want us to download their music videos. What's their problem. I just want to watch the video when I am offline, and save vid has saved me from getting angry again.
All the other videos that do not have major sponsors download just fine, and it's sad that we have to find workarounds to stupid problems. Save vid allows you to save the you tube video without loading a spybot plugin that changes your home page and peppers you with ads, I'm glad they have it. I hope to save someone else the trouble.

Actually, it is keep vid dot come, not save vid that i used, but both are legit websites that allow you to download videos from anywhere without a lot of hassle or unsafe plugins. Sorry about any confusion.
I forgot to mention, it has nothing to do with cookies. I saw a lot of threads about cookies disabled, enabled, clearing the cache, whatever. It's all irrelevant. The companies who allow us to see the music videos put some kind of block that doesn't allow Video Download helper to download them. It's got nothing to do with cookie settings. I know you may think differently, but I don't have all day to tweak things that should work right in the first place. Why else would they have websites that allow us to download videos without any tricks or gimmicks or adds. I'm just sayin.
Abandoning post. For vexed Firefox and video download helper users who have the same problem.
