in reply to using WWW::YouTube::Download?

Given the YouTube url, the $video_id is sP4NMoJcFd4.

UPDATE... The following was sufficient to d/l that video (and it played successfully using VLC). I also used some of the other calls successfully, so it seems like all is working well with this module.

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use WWW::YouTube::Download; my $video_id = "sP4NMoJcFd4"; my $client = WWW::YouTube::Download->new; $client->download($video_id);

    I tried this code to download a youtube video and got the message: !! download failed: 403 Forbidden at C:\...\ line 8 If you can offer some suggestions to prevent this negative response, I would appreciate.
      I re-ran the code I posted in June (that definitely worked in June) and I'm getting a 403 error, too. Perhaps YouTube is blocking downloading of videos in this manner.
