After installing the latest update, the youtube video download speed is much, much slower.

I just installed the latest update today. I used to be able to download a 60 minute youtube video in 2-3 minutes, now it takes 15+ minutes. I tried re-starting my computer after the installation, but this did not help. It's just taken me over an hour to download 4 videos.

Hello, Youtube restricts download speed, which means that provided speed is enough for watching videos but is not enough for downloading files.
The reason is simple: Youtube doesn't need users to download videos.
Unfortunately, it's not up to us to change this, but we are trying to find the solution regarding the issue. With no results for now, though.

Are you saying that Youtube began restricting their download speed at the exact time I chose to update my Ummy video downloader? The videos were downloading at full speed yesterday, before installed the latest update of Ummy.

Updating the program here does not matter.
Just a coincidence.
