Are you sure the link is correct?
Why don't you use the plugin for firefox?

What happens if you press OK when you get the message?

Kind regards

What happens if you make that "message" box wider, or taller? Is there a longer error message that we just can't see?

First of all, it's "YouTube", not "utube".

The problem might be that YouTube changed the way you download the video files. That happened a few times before, and many of the youtube download instructions you can find online are broken because of this.

many thanks to you all for your help,and sorry about the delay in getting back to you,i have had some major problems,and found that the easiest way out was to "reinstall",i am now using "firefox" and the youtube plug in,without any problems.
as i have said before im not a lover of "firefox",but it has solved a few problems that i was having with "chrouium"
by the way,anyone know how to keep the page "zoom" constant instead of having to zoom every time ,regards
