There are 2 reasons that I mentioned the addon, Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express:

1. To offer a temporary option for those with browsers for which this addon is compatible.

2. To point out that even if something changed on Youtube, if the above addon works, it must also be possible to make the same adjustments to Flashgot so that it also works (I would think...right?).

(By the way, Flashgot still works fine for other sites, and I have not tried using EYVDE addon on sites other than Youtube.)

It is known that on Youtube, FlashGot is not hacking it.
Can you take it over?

I am not using Pale Moon, but the issue with Flashgot appears the same.

FlashGot should work in Pale Moon "Goanna", no?
FlashGot works, except for the YouTube videos. It's the Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express that doesn't work in PM.

Pale Moon is a fork based on the Goanna engine. All extensions are XPI.

I do not use DownloadStudio, but a different downloader that is compatible with Flashgot. I would think this is the same issue. What appears to be happening, is Flashgot is offering the video file and audio file separately. If just the video file is downloaded, then there is no audio. Further, Flashgot is not offering the different formats/qualities of the video. A few weeks ago, it was offering the videos with the audio merged in the same file, and all the available formats, just as it has always done. I would think maybe Youtube changed something (?). I found an addon called Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express, which does everything that Flashgot previously did, except transfer the download to the downloader, but an extra step with the Flashgot context menu will do so. However, I prefer and suggest, and likely you all do too, that Flashgot would be fixed so we do not have to install and use these extra steps with addons for addons.

Youtube changes constantly.
FlashGot has not been updated in (relatively) ages.
Presumably FlashGot is to be updated.
If so, whether that includes XUL browsers (SeaMonkey, PM) or only webextensions remains to be seen.
(Actually I suppose updates for XUL could be relatively minor, only needing current code to handle YT?)

I also tested the issue with Basilisk (another Firefox fork) and the same FlashGot version. Again, the file lacked an audio track. Could YouTube have changed things so the audio and video are in diffferent URL streams?

All videos downloaded have also lacked sound.
