[resolved] Error Occurred During Download

Aug 6, 2010 at 5:24 PM

Hi,

Sadlly looks like Youtube has changed something and this no longer works.

It gets the response from youtube and asks the user which type to download and then when you click ok you get "Error Occurred During Download". :(

Thanks,

Will

Well now today it is giving me "Youtube has changed something in video parameters. Try to update youtubeFisher to resolve problem." :(

"Error Occurred During Download" in both the old and new versions of Youtubefisher.

I know this problem caused by some changes on the YouTube protocol.. Youtubefisher will be updated as soon as possible (unfortunately, these days I have no time to devote to this free project..) Thanks for reporting.

Excellent, confirmed as working again.

Thanks again!

Though no more picking video quality. :( So only 360p now it seems.

Also, any chance to take advantage of Windows7 features such as http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd942846.aspx .

Like to show download progress right in the task-bar for example.

If you can watch a video in 480p, HD 720p or HD 1040p on youtube, you can download it (with the same quality) using youtubeFisher..
else the video quality is 360p (obviously I can't increase the video quality.. ;)

For now, i have little time and i prefer to leave only .Net 2.0 as prerequisite (it's incredible but there are many people who don't have .net 3.0 or higher..) Maybe in future..

OK must have been a server issue last night cause yes I just tried again and working correctly. I simply went to sleep after my post last night and then woke up today and tried it and it works again. :)

No problem about the .net issue, I understand. Though you do know that Windows Update now offers .net 4.0 as an optional update to Windows XP users, and as a recommended update for Windows Vista and Windows 7.

It was released over 3 months ago now, please see: http://www.satter.org/2010/07/net-and-windows-update-june-2010.html

So you'd think many more people are in fact updated by now, no?

We are talking about a small, non-critical feature.. and unfortunately I have little time to devote to this free project, for now.. 
About .net issue, you have to think that the average user do not know what is .Net and maybe doesn't update its o.s.
(I also receive requests for help because they don't have and do not know how to install .net2 !!!)
However when I have more time for this project, I can implement this and others features ;)

An update of youtubefisher will be released in a few days...

Hi. I'd like to volunteer to help.

I've extracted vide_id and t values from you tube page, but probably not correctly.

How should resulting URL look like?

 

This is what i get, and it does not work:

http://youtube.com/get_video?video_id=fJOsFh3VVuI&t=vjVQa1PpcFNHwN4CTW53cPW4Bcqag6jK53xPa9BDC4U=&fmt=18

 

This is for video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJOsFh3VVuI

 

I'll try to play around more.

The best method (and this does work still), is to pull the fmt. With this you can pull the signature etc so that it is not dependent on the SWF settings variable name or location. Here is an example using that, in VB http://www.sourcecodester.com/visual-basic-net/youtube-downloader.html
