    Question Freecorder: Why does it not record every video off youtube?

    I was watching a Billy Connolly series of videos off youtube and it recorded parts 1 to 5 and part 7 just fine but won't record part 6. They were uploaded obviously by the same person and all videos are the same video and audio type so I don't understand why freecorder refused to record part 6 but had no problem all of the other parts. I refreshed the page quite a few times and still it won't record part 6. I have Freecorder 5, 5.11.

    Can you please provide me with the URL of the audio or video you're trying to record, so I can trouble shoot the issue?

    Sure no problem. Apparently there are 12 parts to the video series of Billy Connolly and I noticed that it did the same thing to at least two other parts as well. Here is the link to part 6 though (it still won't copy this video):

    Hi Gram

    I was able to record that just fine, though it did record as a webm file using Replay Media Catcher (which youtube is SOMETIMES using). Give it a shot, you can record youtube videos for free with it

    ALSO, i'm transferring this ticket to the correct forum

    Thanks!

    Well it still won't for me but it will record most of the other videos in the series of videos. Part 6 just won't record. I can however, click on the "Download videos off youtube" button on the Toolbar itself so this isn't a major problem for me. But when activating Freecorder itself and leave it sit on my desktop where it normally catches a good 90% of the videos I watch on youtube, it did not automatically record Part 6 and at least 2 other parts of that Billy Connolly series of videos. I just thought I'd bring this to your attention. And I don't have the Replay Media Catcher installed at the moment.

    Hi, I have encountered a similar problem on some youtube videos, the only way i could find to get around this is to use a different programme to download these videos (not as convienient as I have to launce a separate programme).

    I too have had trouble using the Freecorder Toolbar (Freecorder 5 in use) to record YouTube videos. It still works at other sites. A free-program called, YouTube Downloader (Hope it's okay if I mention this here?) works on all YouTube videos. I then play them back using the Applian FLV Player. I understand that since Google took over at YouTube, they've changed the way YouTube videos are streamed, so the old plugins and programs no longer work. You'll want to fix that.

    YouTube appears to have changed their protocol for video downloads, or is at least experimenting with it. This has the effect of disabling Freecorder and other free solutions.

    The best way to continue to be able to download videos is to use a product like Replay Media Catcher. You can try it for free here:

    I'm having the same problem, only for everything. Just last night I was saving videos from justin tv but today nothing is showing up in the video catcher. No youtube videos or anything else works anymore. There was no update to firefox but my laptop did download updates for Windows. I don't know why it would disable freecorder like this but any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I don't have long before the videos I really want to watch start to get taken down.

    I'd use Replay Media Catcher, which I only use as a last resort, but it automatically disconnects from Justin TV after a while, leaving me with an incomplete video. I don't know why because I thought not closing the window would avoid that. Arghgh
