Some videos on Vevo work. Others produce this 404 error. The URLs are of identical structure. No reason why sometimes the common.py extractor is used when the vevo one is available!

Fixed, thanks for the report.

Don't worry about the common.py file, it's just that the code for downloading webpages (as well as other utilites) is defined there. As you can see in the message [Vevo] USUV71302279: Downloading json info the url is correctly recognized as a vevo video.

WOW. Thanks a bunch. That was hella quick. Great job.
