There's a couple BBC programs I like to DL from YouTube. Could watch them there, but I prefer the greater playback control I have with a video file in my player (GOM or PotPlayer). I don't re-post them in any way, just play the file then delete it. Oddly, some of these files dl fine, others of the very same program (different episode & poster, usually) will not. EG, this one WILL DL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEYF_0MynEQ this one will NOT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Gqhsq3wns The "Will Not" files simply "DL" with 0 bytes. There are multiple examples of each of these. Anyone know a sure-fire way to DL ANYTHING from YouTube? Have tried "Easy Youtube Video Downloader" which does not seem to work at all anymore, and "1 Click YouTube Video Downloader", which will DL some, others just get the 0 bytes thing. Running 60.4.0esr 64 bit in win7 home.

TIA

Moving to Firefox General...

&, Here are 2 extensions that may work for you.
They do so here.

If you find that one does not work, try the other one?
