in reply to Is it legal to use WWW::YouTube::Download ?

Whether it's legal to use the module doesn't come into play at all.

Maybe Youtube just blacklisted your computer from downloading any more data.

Consider trying other methods (browser, youtube-dl) to check whether it is your internet connection that is blocked or just your script.

    Thank you! Watching in browser works. Since the POD says "It relies entirely on scraping a video's webpage and does not use YT's /get_video_info URL space." I wonder whether it is possible to block just the script?
