The YouTube download code is now fixed. We had to scrap the original YouTube download code. In its place is a new YouTube downloader written from scratch. This new method is actually a little bit quicker, in fact.
And while we were in there, we added support for their new, high-quality videos. If the video is already in the format you want, there’s no conversion necessary!
It also still works for other video sites like The Onion, DailyMotion, Porkolt, TeacherTube, GodTube, GospelTube (not to mention the unmentionables PornHub, YouPorn, and RedTube).
We’ve tested with a ton of videos, but since this is all-new code, there’s always the chance that some video will wreck havoc. If you find any videos that file to download, please post it in the comments, or email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
