YouTube blocking downloads
I see YouTube seems to be blocking the download of music videos?
I was trying to download this oldie Boxer Beat by JoBoxers but get error 403 forbidden.
Anyone know why the change, never known it before

I have just tried this to see if it's something your end.
It refuses to work on this end as either MP3 or MP4 format.

I was offered the opportunity to u[date my YTD, but as it used to work so well, I declined it, so even the older version won't do it.

Not one for me, but I was able to download using RealPlayer (which is a free download, though I do have the paid for upgrade).

Not a problem even on old Xp.

Still works when using Firefox.

I think I tried that last night. Although it did download a file it then failed on all others.

I've updated my YouTube downloader and it seems to be working fine.

Sold all my 45's from my teens but want all the songs.

I've been using this for a couple of years with no issues. It can be set to either download a full video or just extract the audio.
