FlashGot & DownloadStudio can't download YouTube videos

Postby Will Pittenger » Fri Nov 24, 2017 6:03 pm

I use Pale Moon 27.6.1 64-bit, DownloadStudio 10.0.3.0 (from Conceiva), and FlashGot 1.5.6.14 (probably the most recent version compatible with PM). When I have FlashGot set to download media using DownloadStudio and try to download YouTube videos, DownloadStudio commonly gets confused and downloads videoplayback instead of the video. Do you know of an issue that might be causing this?

Below is the string I used to tell DownloadStudio what to do. Is something wrong here?
Code: Select all
<downloadstudio><originator>firefox</originator><script><add_jobs display_dialog=yes><joblist><job> [<url>URL</url>] [<url_list_file>UFILE</url_list_file>]
[<file>FNAME</file>]
[<referer>REFERER</referer>] [<post_data>POST</post_data>] [<cookie>COOKIE</cookie>] </job></joblist></add_jobs></script></downloadstudio>

All videos downloaded have also lacked sound.

Please also read FlashGot & DownloadStudio can't download YouTube videos. That's the thread at Conceiva's support forum.

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?

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?)
