Some YT videos downloads too slowly (hours even)

Post by aznshow »

Hi. So I have the above issue that has been happening for weeks. But it has grown too bad in a way that I know have too many videos that get this issue. Out of the 10 videos, 3 downloaded just fine in around 5 seconds or less which is the norm for a 1Gbps connection. But the rest.... A 17:17 minute video that is just 887MB should have downloaded in seconds as well end up downloading in hours. With ridiculously slow download speeds. When checking the history section on VTD, it will say 'Video Download has failed' with that triangle and an '!' icon being displayed on those very slow download videos.

The only way that I can solve this is to input multiple instances of the same video into VTD and then try downloading 1 by 1 to see which will download at the normal fast rate. I will have to do this for every individual video. So out of 10, if 7 failed, then I'll have to do that method more than 7 times until I managed to download every single video in a slow painstaking way.

I hope you can help get this issue resolved. They are not M3U8 files. They are normal WebM video formats that download normally with file sizes and ETAs. Not by parts like an M3U8 file would.

Currently, even when I tried to apply 4 of the same videos, all 4 will still download slowly. Even more than 4 of the same video even. So I am now at a loss. I don't want to wait for hours like as if I have a slow internet just to get these YT videos. So I am writing this in the hopes that this issue can be fixed. Thank you for your assistances on this matter.

PS. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. But the same issue still persists. As per normal, I have the settings maxed out such as multithreaded downloads and 10x speeds, unlimited downloads and all.

Hi aznshow, I work in a team where we process lots of YT videos on a daily basis with the ChrisPC software and we also have been experiencing this issue, which is frustrating at times. From what we were able to find out it came to light that the low download speeds are a result of changes in YouTube's algorithm. Hopefully a fix wil be released soon!

Try latest version 14.21.1014, it should work better for those videos.
