  1. I'm having a lot of problems downloading a youtube video. I figure this must be down to the age consent thing, as i don't normally have any issue downloading anything from youtube. I've tried youtube-dl but this throws up an error.

    Any help any of you may be able to offer would be appreciated.

    It would help if you give us the youtube link and the error you're getting, i mean,we could be looking for a needle in a haystack here.

    I tested,got also an error, and it's due to age restriction.
    You can simply add --age-limit 0 to the youtube-dl command and it should be fine. (at least it worked for me without any problems)

  5. When I try to play the video via the youtube link I get an age restriction / login prompt. But youtube-dl has no problem downloading the video with just the default settings:

    Code:
    youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqjyGrF55rk
    That got a 3.6 GB 1920x1080 30p video.

    Tried this and got an age restricted error. Changed the number and the same error as my original attempts crept up.

    You tube have made some changes that is stopping downloads
    https://torrentfreak.com/youtube-blocks-popular-mp3-stream-ripping-sites-190710/
    this will probably affect youtube-dl as well as a lot of these sites use this for their conversions

  11. The youtube-dl on my Windows 7 computer is ver2019.06.21.0. I used the
    -F
    command to see available resolutions and chose the smallest file size for video and audio and got a 2 hour 34 minute video that plays fine.
