in thread using WWW::YouTube::Download?

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:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=zLHc8NR_v-8

      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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLHc8NR_v-8#t=136s

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