Raja, did you try it more or less recently? Something has changed on youtube a while ago; so there are a number of obsolete recipes on Internet...

I didn't know about that, anyway gave him another link(download manager.), Thank you.
BTW I'm waiting for your answer.

On what? On Youtube downloading? I don't know at the moment -- recently wanted to download something, found that my old recipe did not work out. Worse, tried couple of new recipes I tried to Google, from too of the list -- they did not work either. So you reference needs confirmation.

Not particularly, the article says "Sample application that manages multiple segmented downloads and supports HTTP, FTP and YouTube video downloads" so I updated my answer with this.
/*found that my old recipe did not work out.*/
You mean your article? but I have checked no articles related to that, hope you mean your personal recipe.

No, I don't have an article on that. In YouTube, the problem is finding the URL from the page where the clip is played. Downloading is not a problem. I shared my own downloaded on Q&A, by the way.
