Hi Lawrence,

Since this machine runs Windows (no Python installed) I installed a
different youtube downloader. It turns out to be almost impossible to
download a complete youtube video. I think this means the problem is
with my Vodafone connection. The DSL speed tester shows 2200 kbs
download rate from the Vodafone server, but apparently there are
intermittent delays (lost packets?) that cause the youtube connection to
be broken. Is it worth complaining to Vodafone? I suspect not.
