Problem on MacTubes

by tjlean / August 23, 2010 12:10 PM PDT

I have a question about Mactubes and hope this is ok to ask here. I have 2.4.3 version running in tiger and I used to be able to download YouTube videos using this software. Recently whenever I click download it will give me an error message 'Cannot start download' and when I click on the log, the 1st part of the message says "Can not parse html
html=<!DOCTYPE html>". Hope somebody can help.
