Youtube Downloads really slow lately

Postby farisr » 18 Jan 2018, 04:35

Over the last few days or so (before and after updating to the latest version), I've seen downloads take a really long time compared to before. At most it downloads at 1 mb/s, usually well below it. Whereas before it could utlilize the extra available speed of my connection without any issues (I can download up to 40mb/s with my connection and it used to download near at least half of that speed before).

Wondering if this is a known issue or not.

same to me since today and a pop up window tells me, a new version has been released.
But there is no new version (I have already the latest 9.12.28)

I'm seeing the same (unrelated) issues here - slow Youtube downloads since Tuesday late afternoon (GMT), and a notification from my v9.12.28 that there is a newer version.

YouTube is blocking download rate bypass, so the download is at same rate as if video was played/watched.

Only DASH streams seem to be affected.

Chris, that's right, only Dash-streams are affected.
But if I choose 1080p MP4 H.264 high only 720p is possible

1080p MP4 High hasn't worked or been a thing for ages for me, I had figured that YT may have just stopped having that format which is why it was no longer available when selected.

But anyways, Chris, any ideas or plans to implemented a multi-threaded download system for DASH files that while, not getting around it completely, does complete downloads significantly faster.

I have another app I use that captures downloads and runs a multi-threaded download that basically downloads at 20mb/s right at the start of the download and then eventually goes down to an average of 5-8 mb/s, which is still a lot better than sub 500kb/s downloads that are currently happening with single threaded download.

I'd prefer being able to use this apps other features, like adding in playlists, or capturing YT videos by just copying the link, having the quality automatically set etc. rather than having to open each video individually that I have to do with that app.
