    YouTube downloaders are all crap any way, the best thing to do is to install the YouTube to mp4 greasemonkey script In your browser, it adds a download button to the video just next to the thumbs up button on the web page.
    Can't post a link to it though as I'm posting on my iPad.

    Try downloading the latest version. I think Solar's comment is a bit too strong, as I use YTD and it works very well. I have yet to find a browser add in that could download the protected / "Do not embed" content in all cases, yet YTD can.

    I have had YTD for a long time and suddenly I have also been getting the failed message.

    Just given up on it.
