Starting yesterday, I haven't been able to download any audio files from YouTube anymore. It would partially download the file, then stop with the message "Network disconnected"


This is the first one I tried downloading which didn't work. Subsequent attempts on different videos also failed. However, it seems like downloading mp4 still works around 80% of the time. Downloading from SoundCloud and Instagram seems to work fine as well. I don't use SaveFrom.net on any other sites.

Hello, in which format are you downloading?

For the better understanding it'll be great to see a screenshot with the error.

Send a couple of links to files that you can not download.

I generally only download the .opus files, but for the sake of showing the bug I tried each format. I also tried different kbps which is why I tried downloading .opus twice.


Here are all the ones that failed that I can remember, but it's becoming apparent that it wont work for any video:



Just to be safe, I also tried downloading audio from non-music videos and it also didn't work



Also, based on the timestamps of files, the problem seemed to arise between 1:44 AM, 06/16/2018 and 8:52 PM, 06/16/2018 in Eastern Daylight Time


Hope this helps :)



Reinstall the extension, remove Chameleon.

Install the Tampermonkey extension and the Savefrom script in it.

Install the extension here in these links.
Google Chrome. First 1 then 2.
1. Tampermonkey black: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo?hl=en
2. Savefrom.Net: https://download.sf-helper.com/chrome/helper.user.js?ts=1455972944179

Clean the cache and cookies in your browser.

I installed the tampermonkey version and cleared my cookies & cache, but it seems to still not be able to download


Extension provides a link for downloading, downloading occurs directly by the browser itself, the reason is most likely in it. Try using an alternative bootloader.
