It might help to tell what extension(s) you are using.

One-Click Youtube Videos Download by Julie_Rodriguez

Note comment:
"Stopped working after 1st succesfull download from youtube.

Worked on first download from youtube on 720p video. After that creates correct named file, but adds (720p) to the name and the file size is 0. No partial file container was created like it did on the first download.

I truly think youtube developers are catching on and preventing downloads from any plugins because they all seem to be failing."

There are many programs out there to choose from. I use Youtubedownloader_HD, not an extension but a standalone program. (But very few/no program will D/L copyright protected videos.)
