Disabling BYTubeD (Posted on: 27 September 2013)
Previously YouTube used to change things in ways which were easy to adapt to. Now they have started encrypting some portions of the video URLs. And the encryption schemes are sufficiently random to consider the effort of chasing around these changes to be futile, if at all legitimate. So, highly probably BYTubeD will never be back again in its normal working condition. The development versions on this site will continue to be available, but I have disabled the add-on on addons.mozilla.org. I do not have any plans to resurrect BYTubeD, given the state of affairs. Programmers who think they have enough time to spend on hacking the encrypted URLs can get the existing code of BYTubeD from here and try to modify it. Users who still wish to test their luck may try version 1.1.2a2. Adiós amigos!
