Perhaps it’s to do with copyright? As YouTube’s ToS make clear, you do not have permission to download copyrighted material (which is everything, unless permission is explicitly granted for it to be downloaded).

But there i many sites
using this sites we download any files how thay do it please explain

for example

Just because lots of people go burgling doesn’t make it legal or OK to do.

if it is possible so please tell me how they do it

Hopefully nobody here will tell you how to download copyrighted videos for which no permission to download has been granted.


The only ones who will likely be able to do that, are the ones doing it already, and there is little reason for them to help you figure it out.

As for your script, you should try debugging it. Look into the parse_data method, chances are it isn’t handling something very well. And that is the key to your problem.

However, you shouldn’t overlook the legality of your application. It very well could lend you into a really bad time.

hmm that mean i need to hire a more educated programmer

I’d say it’s the opposite.

You need to hire a less intelligent programmer.

One that is incapable of comprehending the ramifications of illegal activity.

oh come on every one knows that IDM and sites like that easily download YouTube videos its just a joke of this policy’s

No, I think you missed the point of WebMachine’s post entirely.
It would be interpreted more accurately as “you need to hire a less ethical programmer.”

What ever I will create this site Born this policy

if youtube so care about copyright so why thay provide link to download

Because some people who upload their videos to YouTube give express permission for users to share or download their video.

They don’t. They only allow you to download your own videos.
Anything that allows you to download others is a hack.

hahahaha hacks well so i just west my time to lean youtube api

I think that is likely the key difference between the working and not working URLs in the OP

The working - Veritasium - is a “science, educational” video channel.

The not working - T-Series - is a “music, movie” channel.

The first is much more likely to be agreeable with freely sharing knowledge.
The second is much more likely to not want to freely share copyrighted content.


Please explain one more think if we try to download video from this site download will start but when i copy paste download in in browser download show me permission error how its done
