    Cool Problems with MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b4
    OSX 10.6.7
    Safari 5.0.5
    MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b4

    Hello -

    When I attempt to open, convert or download (non-copyrighted) YouTube videos using MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b4, under File>Open URL, I get the "File Error: Can't open the file" alert, with no option to "Open Anyway."

    This occurs 1) even after the YouTube video is fully loaded on the open URL


    2) with ANY combination of

    a) Open; Convert; Download;
    b) Progressive download; Random Access; and
    c) YouTube: HD; MP4; FLV

    I've heard nothing but good things about this software and haven't found any forum threads regarding it since 2009. I've had problems opening video files from DVD's with Streamclip too, but right now the URL problems takes precedence. Frankly it seems nothing about this software works for me. Perhaps it's a compatibility issue, and there is a newer version out there that works with Snow Leopard? Any ideas?

    You can go back to 1.9.2 and try it with that, but really here's what you want:

    Download MacTubes for Mac - YouTube video player and downloader with iTunes-like interface.

    Works great, use it all the time.

    Thanks for the link -
    I started with 1.9.2 with the exact same problems.
