Youtube Imports failing - "Unable to extract video data"
This should be fixed now. Please give it another try everyone.
Yes, this is working fine now, confirmed for both the links I provided earlier, and for some others too.
Was this hiccup perhaps linked to recent announcement that Youtube has decided to insert more advertisements within their posted videos perhaps???
By the way, this has been working fine up until yesterday, and I did not have any problems with this previously as seem to be experienced by other users as I have seen in the other 'Post' about similar issues.
Anyway, many thanks for quick response, very much appreciated .. :-)
It makes me same thing, I tried videos that worked before with no problem, and now it doesn ´t work on those videos aswell.
It works now! Thanks!
Sorry to hear that. We are looking into it. Can you please provide a link to one of videos you are unable to import? Thanks!
"Error:Importing failed - ERROR: WwRs8oIckEQ: YouTube said: Unable to extract video data"..
As I said originally, it is still happening for 'any' youtube video with CC, but here are specific links, and note the error text includes the id of the video ...
Hope that helps with investigation?
for example this link worked 3 days ago :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vit33xThqAE&t=4s
Although I lost all my belief that LingQ would EVER fix this problem with YouTube import, to my great surprise, it seems to have been fixed. I have uploaded another video from there successfully after some time of inactivity. Thank you.
I have the same problem.
i use MacOS Big Sur ver 11.0.1 Firefox Browser 82.0.3 (64-bit).
I also have the same problem.. tried uninstalling and reinstalling on both Chrom and Firefox and it still does not work. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
All youtube imports still failing on pc with Chrome browser with same basic error text!
However, I have just successfully imported some youtube videos via iphone., on Safari browser.
So, at least not grounded while waiting for any resolution.
As before, any feedback would be appreciated.
