Why can't I download a specific YouTube video?

  • Question
  • Updated 6 years ago
Why won't Miro find a specific video (from YouTube)? I put in the proper search term & it finds numerous links, but not the one I need. The video is watchable on YouTube & is the first to be listed in the YouTube search.

For example--I want to download this video:

It's obviously there, but Miro can't seem to find it & I cannot download to Miro. Why is that?

Howcome Miro can't apply a similar method that DownloadHelper for Firefox is using. That thing always works, embeddable or not. You're actually viewing the page then though, but that shouldn't be so hard to "simulate"?
