can't download videos from youtube wuth builtin browser

Post by jb » Wed Mar 16, 2016 4:13 pm

It was working before the last few firefox nightly updates. I use latest nightly + flashgot 1.5.6.13rc1, i go to youtube, pick a video, right click the media button in the icon bars, select a video format, the download starts and stops immediately, download windows said failed. If a choose in flashgot options an external download manager (jdownloader) then it works. It affects only the firefox builtin downloader. It was perfectly working last week.

Does Error Console provide any related clues on the failure?

Any change if you drop back to FlashGot 1.5.6.12 ? https://flashgot.net/feeds
Any change if you use FlashGot 1.5.6.13 with FF 45 (Release version)?

Error console? the one with ctrl-shift-j gives nothing.

i can't go back to old versions of flashgot with nightly, it prevents installation of the xpi of your feed (and does not offer the allow dropdown)
but i succesfully run and use 1.5.6.13 with a previous version of firefox (light 42, a special firefox)

I have the same on FF 20.0.1
Dropping back to FlashGot 1.5.6.12 solves the problem. Unfortunately I didn't look in error console, just tried the advice to drop back, so I don't know what had happened.
