Does not work for me. Tried others as well and it seems that Google/Youtube has blocked downloading due to possible infringements of copyrights. Google the prob today and lots of people are having the same difficulty.

I've been having problems with the YouTube site. IE keeps freezing when typing in the search box on the site. It will recover the tab and eventually get there. Same happening with Firefox and on another PC running XP. I use aTube Catcher and that downloaded successfully. I'm running Safari now and it seems ok on this browser. Not sure if it has something to do with the latest updates.

Not just me then with the Browser freezing problems, I'm using Firefox and getting freeze-ups and taskmanager showing 50 to a 100% CPU usage.

@rdave....... I was having the same problem with Youtube freezing, although it did eventually recover, It seemed to start after last weeks Windows updates.... It turned out a nVidea Graphics card update sorted out the problem for me.

Apparently YouTube did some alterations middle of Sept and lots of downloaders had problems after that. My FFox Download Helper needed to be updated before it would work properly.
