If you are entering a YT URL into the YouTube sniffer and it is not returning a list of files to download, the likely cause|
is that you are using an non-standard YT URL. Depending upon where in youtube you are it can give you a variety of URL's, some
that have playlist or channel information appended to them. For example:
Such a URL can cause a problem because the Standard YT video URLwhich the YT sniffer is expecting looks like this
The basic rule here is that anything including the ampersand (&) and after that can be removed from the URL. So
for example this URL
Please take a look at the URL you are trying to download and shorten the URL as shown above. If you have problems
getting a shortened URL, probably the easiest way to find this is to go to the Sharing option that appears below
each YouTube video, and grab that URL and put it into your browser and tap your enter key. This SHARING link will
refresh to a Standard format YT URL that you can either use directly or easily shorten as shown above.
Once you have the correct URL format and use it, the YT Sniffer should work correctly for you.
