Chris,
Regarding version: 12.18.18
I have had heaps of problems trying to download this version.
But with "brute force" I eventually was able to get a full download (two actually!).
Windows / Google / Whoever did NOT want that file on my computer.
I use IDM (Internet Download Manager) for all my downloads and each time I tried it failed with a timeout error about 2/3 in.
Windows 10 told me that the download was an unsafe app and would not run.
I also tried Google Chrome browser download (bypassing IDM) and 2/3 or so in kept getting a network error.
The same with Edge chrome - different error message but same result.
Using IDM to download I was only allowed one channel and no resume capability (that may be your setup? Never noticed before)
And the transfer rate was wildly fluctuating and just before the error(s) popped-up it was very slow.
BTW. The Free Version downloaded just fine when I tried it only the PRO version failed.
Just now I installed 12.18.18 without any "fuss" and it runs OK.
Don't know if only I was affected but I doubt it.
Regards
Laurie

I have the same problem. I had to downloaded it from my phone. You don't happen to use Verizon FiOS do you? If you do, it might be related to them blocking a bunch of DDOS-Guard IP addresses last month.

Youtube has just introduced a new URL format in search results, for example:

https://www.youtube.com/shorts/OORBa32WFcM

Could the Downloader please be made to support this new format? Thanks in advance! :-)

Sad to say that this issue has again reared its ugly head once again. Same issue as described before. Added a YouTube video and watch it vanish from VTD.

Yup, the new version is not usable, all videos you add just time out and disappear

Please try version 12.19.23, it should fix the issue.

Yes, v12.19.23 does solve the problem - many thanks again!!

ps: when I tried to post this, I did so first by quoting your message ("Please try version 12.19.23, it should fix the issue") and then adding my one-line response, and I got an error message from the forum saying that my message contains too few characters. I tried adding several hundreds of chars, but the error kept coming back and I could not post my reply. I had to remove your quote, and then I could post this reply. Weird!
