YouTube Import Error (Signature extraction error?)

Hey y’all,

Have seen a few topics on YouTube import issues, but I have not seen one with the following error (I could just be terrible at searching the forum though :joy:):

Error: Importing failed - ERROR: Signature extraction failed: Traceback (most recent call last): File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/extractor/”, line 1590, in _decrypt_signature video_id, player_url, s File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/extractor/”, line 1510, in _extract_signature_function cache_res = res(test_string) File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/extractor/”, line 1578, in return lambda s: initial_function([s]) File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/”, line 36, in call return self.func(*args, **kwargs) File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/”, line 1037, in resf ret, should_abort = self.interpret_statement(code.replace(‘\n’, ’ '), var_stack, allow_recursion - 1) File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/”, line 441, in interpret_statement ret, should_return = self.interpret_statement(sub_stmt, local_vars, allow_recursion) File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/”, line 915, in interpret_statement return eval_method(), should_return File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/”, line 800, in eval_method self._objects[variable] = self.extract_object(variable) File “/srv/parts/youtube-dl/youtube_dl/”, line 952, in extract_object raise self.Exception('Could not find object ’ + objname) Exception: Could not find object vP

I tried in both Firefox and Chrome and received the same error.

If any other information is needed, I am more than happy to provide it. Mainly made the thread to give the error to whichever dev team handles the browser extension–if there is a better way to do this, please let me know.

Thanks for all y’all do with this product.
