Outdated YouTube Video Downloader Extension (403)
YouTube usually update their algorithms to improve performance. In this way, we also need to upgrade our extension functionality to work correctly with their algorithm. Make sure you have the latest version of the extension.
Token expired (403)
In case you are getting a 403 error notification. It means your extension’s unique token expired for some reason. To fix this, please restart your browser.
Too many requests (429)
The HTTP 429 Too Many Requests response status code indicates the user has sent too many download requests in a given amount of time (“rate limiting”). If YouTube has implemented this temporary ban on your connection, It will be reset in a few minutes, and it is also possible that this ban can be lifted by changing your IP Address.
Link not found (404)
A 404 error is an HTTP status code that means YouTube videos you were trying to Download couldn’t be found. It could be a live video, a Private video, or a video that has already been removed from the Youtube server.
Your Internet connection is unstable.
In most cases, poor or unstable network connections could be the top possible culprit behind downloading issues. So, when the Addoncrop YouTube Video downloader can’t download videos from YouTube, please check the connectivity.
Not enough disk space.
A video can’t be downloaded when there is insufficient free disk space. Check your drive space usage. If the free space is low, Please clear up some storage space by uninstalling some programs, deleting unnecessary files, cleaning temp files, etc.
