I often use Axel to download youtube videos with multiples connection (20). But 3 days ago, when i try to download the video i get a 403 forbidden.
I use axel with the header cookie to put cookie information from youtube-dl and i've set the user-agent correctly...
I don't understand, some videos download correctly but most of them give me a 403 error.
What youtube change in their code ?
Have you updated to the latest version of youtube-dl? https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl#error-unable-to-download-video
My version of youtube-dl is updated.
Do you think that some youtube servers block multi connection to a file ?
Without this method, download takes for ever...
Umh... have you changed the User-Agent to our latest?
Could you post your complete console log? I'll try to reproduce.
I've managed yesterday to get rid of the 403 error : axel didn't wanted to take the cookie
All worked for me yesterday, but today it's crazyness ! If i request with curl more than 1 time the donwload url, i get no answer from the server !
example : curl -b m62SfhWwpqU.cookie -I "http://o-o---preferred---sn-25g7rn7k---v22---lscache6.c.youtube.com/videoplayback?upn=ypSW97Pzjs8&sparams=algorithm%2Cburst%2Ccp%2Cfactor%2Cid%2Cip%2Cipbits%2Citag%2Csource%2Cupn%2Cexpire&fexp=900148%2C922401%2C920704%2C912806%2C927201%2C900711%2C913546%2C913556%2C925109%2C919003%2C912706%2C900816%2C911112&expire=1349641490&algorithm=throttle-factor&burst=40&ip=184.108.40.206&itag=34&sver=3&key=yt1&mt=1349616492&mv=m&source=youtube&ms=au&ipbits=8&factor=1.25&cp=U0hTTlZPT19OSkNOM19OSVNFOmc2bjlVS25COWtz&id=9bad927e15b0a6a5&signature=323F4B244A330E7C18BB79B1BC1CBBFA6DBA052C.738D8CF4E9F853ECFC84124764C70D81255FA8E3&gcr=fr"
Do experience the same problem today ?
Youtube really wants us down..
And youtube-dl -g "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PRk-guI7VE" takes forever to respond ! But when i try dailymotion, it just run fine
I have the same problem. Have you found a solution?
