Unable to download from YouTube Purchases

I am a premium YouTube member. I have purchases I would like to download. It completes but I get an error (unable to extract video data.) I tried DVR but I get a video asking to login or signup to verify my age.


How am I supposed to use the DVR if I can't login to YouTube?

Thats strange.  I can login here just fine.   Where does that "Learn more" link take you?

Anyway you can spoof the browser by settings the user agent string in Settings > DVR > User Agent Override

You can set it to something like

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/86.0.4240.111 Safari/537.36

YouTube Movies requires the DVR to capture.

Open the DVR 

Navigate to YouTube.com and login

The Navigate to the movie, play it and click REC

Ok, I tried to sign in and it wouldn't let me.


Couldn't sign you in

It looks like the Chrome version the DVR uses is Version 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (32-bit). It does ask me to update it but I didn't.
