I normally use Jaksta for downloading live YouTube streams but it's not working at the moment, there will hopefully be a new extraction engine to cope with YouTube changes soon.
In the meantime I've installed YouTube ByClick, which is working - but I can't see how to stop/save a live stream download before it auto-finishes.
(It is different from Jaksta, in that it downloads live streams from the start of the current streaming period rather than from the moment the URL is entered - a nuisance for me but I can manage.)
There appears to be no support on the website beyond what they consider to be FAQs, in which my question does not feature, as far as I can see.
I'm only using the free version as yet, because I don't need the (many) extra features offered by the keenly-priced Premium.

I downloaded youtube-dl-gui 64-bit because I'm not used to using command lines - and I download other streams besides YouTube's, as well as screen-capture, so I need to be able to click quick!
youtube-dl-gui says "May require ffmpeg (put ffmpeg.exe and ffprobe.exe in same folder as youtube-dl-gui.exe)."
I've can't work out how to get the necessary exe files unzipped into one folder, and am now so addled I have to give up as I have loads of other downloads/screen-captures going on here :'(
Also, all my "installation files", ie exe files, are saved to D drive, not C, but if I have a shortcut on desktop that shouldn't matter, should it?
I tried that, LZAA, but the ffmpeg exes wouldn't paste into the folder. I wish they'd give exe files to download instead of zips
You'd better not waste any more time on me, I am too committed to too many tasks to be able to dedicate my time to this task.
I have found that Freemake will open/navigate the YouTubeByClick downloads while they're still going on (VirtualDub can't do it), so I'll have to manage somehow - but it's a nuisance not being able to download from the current time and not include the history of the stream.
