Same issue here since the update - youtube is spotty right now. It'll work fine with certain types of videos, but with others it'll drop the audio. Tried to see how Video Downloadhelper would handle it and it's the same: drops the other options it'd usually have, and has a single "ADP" download for these videos, where they say audio and video tracks are separated and they ask for a converter download/license. Dunno if this helps narrow the issue down as to what type of videos were broken, I'm not a super-codey person...but anyway, back to flashgot.

The e10s fix didn't work and neither did using a previous version of flashgot, which I did the last time a firefox update broke stuff. I think it'll still work under the previous version of the browser, haven't tried that yet personally. If this can be fixed long term, thank you thank you!

Similar problem here. Am using Firefox 54.0.1 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions), and Firefox Developer 55.0b11 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions). Have installed FlashGot under all 4 installations. Same problem on all four: 99% of the time, I now only get .webm download options. And, 99% of the time, when I've tried downloading ALL versions of .webm, none of them have audio. I haven't tried earlier Firefox versions yet, but will.

I downgraded Firefox Developer to version 54.x and everything seems to be working again.

Obviously something in the latest update causing interference with FlashGot.

For others having the same issue be aware that not keeping up with the latest versions of your browser can leave you vunerable and may compromise your security.

I am willing to take the risk with an older browser version until a new version of FlashGot is available.

Thanks for your help @therube.

Cheers!

I'm glad you were able to get the functionality back by downgrading but I would still recommend(me included) to stay up-to-date with the latest browser version for security purposes. I think there're other ways to download videos from YT that does not involve you compromising on security.

FlashGotFan (not the OP) is using (for whatever reason) FF 55 - which is not (yet) a release item.

So in that respect, if something breaks there, it wouldn't be unexpected.

'm going to downgrade to a earlier version of Firefox Developer


Reverting to FF 54 - which is the latest release version, does not lessen "security".

(I don't know where FF 54 "Developer" fits into the scheme of things.)

FF 54 is not "older" - it is the current Release version.

I notice you use SeaMonkey 2.0.14 (as noted in your sig)... that is an old version or is not updated?

Sig is only there for nostalgic reasons.
I'm running a build of SeaMonkey 2.49.1. (Current Release is 2.46, which is dated at this point.)


What's the benefits of Seamonkey over FireFox?

Fits me. Looks & works how I want.

Hi therube

I'll post a few -

These one have the issue I mentioned

This one does not (meaning I can see "Available formats" as well as the DASH formats)

Hi Fabio,

I'm having exactly the same issue, which I've noticed has started on YouTube during the past 2 weeks or so.

I've tried your suggested websites and the one that does work with the same results. No VEVO videos seem to work properly, nor offer the 'available formats' option, which is the first sign of trouble. But most other videos which worked a few months ago are now having the same issue on YT as VEVO ones - that is you can only download sound with no vision, or vice-versa. Most other websites so far seem to work OK, but DailyMotion is another video website where Flashgot has never worked.

Seems to have to do with Google's new chunked video stream format.
Video DownloadHelper (another addon) has comparable problems.

Can we get a response to know if this latest Google attempt to cancel the 21st Century has a workaround?

Hi Guest

yes, I continue to have the issue on certain videos.

To Giorgio or TheRube: Any idea if any code update is being planned?

Many thanks

I can only assume that the intent is there.
That Giorgio is more concerned with NoScript, at this time.
That when he gets time, he'll update FlashGot (& also come out with a WebX version too).

You can take clip converter(http://www.clipconverter.cc/) to help you if you really need to download YouTube.
