YouTube has change some parameters in their pages and this breaks YouTubeFisher.

I'll fix that and release new version soon (later today).

Thanks for reporting the issue.

What's that screenshot??? That's not the original youtubeFisher (at least the title was changed...)

 
However, I'm doing several tests and i think that YoutubeFisher working properly...
Sometimes there may be temporary errors due to connection problems or communication with youtube... try again or, if the problem persists, try a different output format..

Actually is not possible to pause a download and resume it later (this is a youtube limit, not of our program...)

hey!!!... i am not talking about pause the download.!!!! i mean.. you download the file and its been downloaded incomplete like 50%.  but it still play the 50% downloaded file..

but next time i again download the file,  its download the file incomplete as previous 50% and show it as 100% downloaded!!.. got the point ?

Hi spletshadow,

The first issue is most probably a connection problem, but that needs to be confirmed.

The second issue is kind of strange as YouTubeFisher does not save the provious status of the download, and each new download is treated as new one even if you paste the same URL again and again.

We are open to investigate any issue reported by our user, and to be able to help you with the issues reportd, please provide a step-by-step directions of how to reproduce the issues. From our side, we were not able to reproduce the issues. Also, try to use the original executable from here and see if it has the same issues and we prefer if you can test it on different PC's and see the results.

Thanks for reporting.
