Youtube video can't be downloaded

Post by agaxwmtp » Thu Mar 21, 2013 6:51 am

I'm using:

- Firefox 19.0.2
- DownThemAll
- the current version of FlashGot

Put The Needle on the Record - it's ~80 minutes long.

I reloaded the page three times - there's no icon so there's no way for me to download it.

I've never experienced this sort of problem before. I downloaded a couple of other Youtube videos a few minutes ago. I'll edit this post if I have more "undownloadable" videos.

Hmm... do some Youtube videos have copy protection?

These download sites didn't work:

http://www.music-clips.net/v/v1IicrMQm1o/mp4/
http://dirpy.com/studio/v1IicrMQm1o#video-options-div

And I didn't use java-based sites. There's no way I'm using those.

Yes, those videos use RTMP, an Adobe-proprietary Flash-based streaming protocol, sometimes preferred for copy protection.
FlashGot does not support it (yet?)

And the Youtube is doing what ?

"ptracking" ?

Code: Select all

That seems to be "flv" ?
But what or how ?

YouTube downloading ?


But then a link like this is seen & can be downloaded, Zlata Muck Faint on Live TV Školski:

Code: Select all
