Another likely possibility is that, apparently, you start a video in your browser and then proceed downloading it in YTD. Thus you use two simultaneous threads for th eplayback of the same video, and if I were developing a video service, I would certainly check for that and permitted only one of the threads. Why don't you close your browser completely and THEN try to download with YTD?

Good idea. Just tested on WinXP SP1a machine and worked flawlessly... now lets try others...

On Win7 SP1 it does not work - untill so many tries, as you can see:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gUZJNEV_is

(today is obviously "make damn f*cking lame booooooring videos" day)

Time for WinXP SP3 machine test.

...

Nope. It "seems" to increase my chances to exit all apps and stop the YewTube video from playing before exiting FF, but it still took many, many retry to get it started with the download.

Futhermore I have to report that there is a bug - only 3h 15min downloaded from 10h video!
http://youtu.be/EX1I2LI8Wc8

Damn. Same is happening using the http://en.savefrom.net/ website (webm format = fast download, no conversion)

So if you can download the whole file for audio extract, then pls reup it somewhere. Thanks!
It get only 1 119.2 MB from the file, witch decoded (FFMpeg) report 10h, but actually only 3h 15min of data are present (that is consistent of the video size, witch is why I mention it as bug) ...

Don't you just *love* it, when a simple GF request find out so stupid limitation of some program(s)?!


...and it did not look much better with other apps too, besides they *claim* to get full 10h, I have my doubts. I seen 10h in FFMpeg too, but then it show only few "frames" and ended up with only 3h of audio:
http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/369930-Only-3h-15min-from-10h-YouTube-video


PS. done, strike that last "bug." Microsoft wav limitation was found to be 3h 15min.

Yea, that come from people who once claimed that 640k should be enought for everybody. Okay. Microsoft strikes again!

See the conversion w/o wav works well:
ffmpeg -i x.webm -acodec libmp3lame -b:a 128k x.mp3

...and hoooray! 10h done and working, no bug in YTD that cut the downloaded file to 3h exist. Ufff.

I was kind of expecting an apology, but what the hell...

Sorry for suspecting YTD from any wrongdoing in the 3h from 10h video case  ;)


On the other hand, YTD bug "Nepodařilo se stáhnout stránku informací o médiu" still exist. Sadly...  What can I do to help with killing it?

Try to isolate it so that I can replicate it. Very little to be done about it otherwise.

How can I do to isolate it? Happens for me every time now. It was not happening when I start using YTD ... and then, after some updates, it start.

What can I test more that I already did?

You could start with my earlier suggestion and try how it behaves in cleanly installed Windows. That would provide reliable information.

After update to v1.46 it is not possible to start YouTube download.
Interesting thing - when - after holding the space for some time - the program finally start to "Preparing the download", then clicking (LMB) anywhere else into the free parts of YTD window cause INSTANT change to "Paused" ...

Also clicking to any other window cause such error - instant "Pause."

Is not that weird at least?!

As for clear windows install - well, since there is NO PROGRAM AT ALL that behave in such weird/crazy way, then there will be absolutely no difference on absolutely fresh and clean Windows. I think that first the "Paused" bug, each time I click anywhere, should be eradicated first.
In current state, YTD cannot be used to download videos from YouTube, witch suxx a lot :(

Works for me every single time. Make sure you have OpenSSL libraries in your path as those are required for HTTPS support.

Sure. Especially considering that there was no change to the UI and the only change to YouTube support was that I switched from http to https...

In other words, you didn't try and don't intend to try. Please don't post anymore, your reports are of no value whatsoever.

I have to report, that after installing the OpenSSL 1.02 light, YTD started downloading from YouTube w/o and troubles. So I was right, that resintalling Windows have absolutely nothing to do with it. Switch to HTTPS did this...

So thanks for your patience  ;)

...now off to make it work on Win7 too...
