in thread using WWW::YouTube::Download? still works, maybe needs .com/v/id sometimes instead of ?watch=id, but mostly it just works

    I tried get-flash-videos too. Unfortunately, it gives 404 error. I could see this through checking the debug output. Seems that Youtube recognizes and rejects get-flash-videos also.
      Hmm, in that case, please report the bug, it worked for me very recently (i want to say this month)

      mozilla addon UnPlug works, the difference appears to be a &signature=key

        I had the same problem with error 404 when downloading YouTube videos and I solved it.

        After frustrating, cursing, losing a few hairs and having a few more turn gray, I found the problem.

        When you copy a URL from a YouTube video in Firefox (or presumably another browser) you get something like this:

        you want to remove this portion of the string: feature=player_detailpage&v=

        The above string is for the browser, or for flash player, but is not a part of the video address string.

        YOU WANT THIS:

        When I called download with this string (with "feature_player" removed) it worked like a charm.

[marto]: Eily you can't remote connect the physical device via USB ;)
[Corion]: Eily: Sure, that's what I do, but some things you need to do on the Android device directly, like when navigating the bootloader :-)
[Eily]: marto you just need a longer cable :P
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, but I'm somewhat wary of installing random USB drivers downloaded from , Google Drive or whatever, so Linux wins there due to there being no conflicts and me just having to edit one text file in the worst case, to add the USB vendor
[hippo]: Long USB cable FTW.
[Corion]: Eily: I've thought of that, but I don't like running long cables through the appartment because sooner or later I'll trip over it, pulling at least one device off its stand :)
[marto]: hmm, may have to patch CPAN::Meta to move from search.cpan to metacpan in the META.json/yml files
[Corion]: marto: Heh - it seems that they plan to keep the links alive for a long time. But still, I plan on moving PM to use/generate the new links
[Corion]: And I think it's better to generate links to the new world instead of keeping the older links alive by generating new versions of them ;)
[marto]: yeah, I guess it's supposed to be a permanent redirect, but better to make the move where possible
