Default Downloading from Youtube

Hello,
I am trying to get a record album from Youtube. I get as far as "save file" and the green arrow, but that's it. I see no run prompt. Does anyone here have any ideas where I can go to find this information?
Thanks in advance

You are using any software to download the video? Which one? You haven't specified the method which you are using.

Or do you need to know methods using which you can download from YouTube?

Well if youre not using any software when you try to download, id recommend Video download helper (if youre using firefox at least) Its a free addon and has worked perfectly for me so far.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ownloadhelper/

This post assumes you use firefox or firefox portable

Although outdated and discontinued Bytubed along with downthemall still works for most user uploaded videos http://msram.github.io/bytubed/

I have had a lot of (youtube) problems with video download helper during the past 6 months or so and it seems that are not updating it or at least not updating it like they used to, just read the reviews on the page. Although it seems to work for some other sites

One I have found that will get most stubborn videos including vevo and the dash formats is complete youtube saver and they seem to update it regularly https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...youtube-saver/ you will also need ffmpeg to go along with this to do the muxing of certain videos as they have split certain resolution videos into separate audio and video streams. You can get ffmpeg from here http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ffmpeg or here http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ Just download and extract it to a folder and point the addon to the folder via the options button on firefox addons page

I have also seen some success with this addon Download Flash and Video https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ash-and-video/

^ You could try the portable version of Youtube Downloader HD. It's very simple to use and, being portable, if you don't like it or it doesn't meet your needs, you only need to delete the stand-alone .exe file and the .ini file that it will create when first used to remove it entirely from your system.

I use NetVideoHunter within Firefox, it does excellently at catching vids on most sites.

I had long forgot about Youtube Downloader HD Portable which is a neat little program that is apparently kept up-to-date and it works. Also apparently it has a built in version of ffmpeg to do muxing. The only drawback is that it does one video at a time but it worked flawlessy when I tried it .

I have not tried NetVideoHunter but apparently the last official version 1.15 was released on November 23, 2013, which probably means it won't get certain videos and certain resolutions, because here lately youtube have been stepping up there game to try to prevent downloads.
