Hey I just realized every video i've downloaded since the end of september has no audio (i download videos to archive them in case they get removed from youtube but dont watch them for a while). the video is fine but they are silent. please let me know how i can fix this, thank you!
The entries in the video menu with "Video" at the end contain only the video (DASH). Same for "Audio".
If you want to download DASH streams you have to download both audio and video streams then multiplex them with a video tool. You can also use a browser protocol and a script associated with it (see script's page).
Videos download without audio- reply
thank you for the quick reply! okay i used the low quality option and it worked like normal. so there is no simple one click way to get HD mp4 with audio?
It's not possible with a browser user script or extension unless it uses a server which does both the download and muxing. The browser doesn't allow calling an external application unless you use a browser protocol or a web server.
I see, alright. thank you for the quick replies!
Message>The downloaded videos have no sound. Why ?
DASH streams are just audio or video, see the stream name in the first menu, if it ends with "Video" is video only. See the previous topics.
Hi! I just wanted to know if you could update the viewtube userscript to have compatibility on the website (http://cytu.be) It doesn't function at all on the youtube/dailymotion video players on that website. That update would be greatly appreciated.
ViewTube doesn't support embedded videos. For embedded you can try LinkTube script.
HD Shows but Only LD Available?
Only recently discovered this:
In spite of YT video showing HD, savetube only allows or shows Low Definition available?
I note this in Chromium browsers like Iron, and Mozilla based browsers: Seamonkey, Firefox, Pale Moon etc.
Is this now normal behavior?
Thanks for all you do!
There are two type of streams, normal and adaptive. Normal streams have both audio and video. For adaptive YouTube uses MPEG-DASH which has two streams, one for audio and one for video. If you want to download adaptive streams you have to enable DASH and use a protocol, see the above comments and the script's page.
Savetube vs Savetube+?
I failed to find out the difference between savetube & savetube Plus.
I apologize if they are explained on your site and I somehow missed it.
This happens in Seammoney, Palemoon, SRWIron, all versions of these browsers (installed & portable, older and new).
They are not the same:
SaveTube works only for the list of sites in the top of the script source code.
SaveTube+ works for any site but only if the page has the streams in the page source code and can be downloaded without modifications (YouTube doesn't work because streams must be modified to be able to be downloaded).
Video doesn't work at all on some videos
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQc-JIZ6C-0 is an episode of Game Grumps. Attempting to view it in Youtube results in "No video with supported format and MIME type found." Attempting to download it results in "C;\Users...mp4.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.
This video is 100% viewable on a different browser that does not use this add-on.
It's fine here. If you want to use the browser native player, select HTML5 from the second menu if the browser fails to play it.
