How to fix IDM while bar download not showing on youtube videos

On December, 2014. Posted in Google Chrome, How To

When you open any type of video on YouTube or any other video streaming website, IDM automatically suggests you a button bar, "Download this video" to download the running video on the computer or laptop. This is a great solution as you can complete two tasks with a singular software download manager and audio, video downloads.

But sometimes, IDM fails to show the "Download this video" option on the playing video files and this can be quite annoying for many users as they only rely on IDM and have used it for a long time. It can become very frustrating when IDM stops showing the downloading option on YouTube videos because then you need to download some other video downloads from the internet specially to download that video file.

I read on many online forums and web sites that lots of users face this issue with IDM when they want to get a video from the internet. But I have a method for this, actually its solution is available with IDM as well. You need to reconfigure some custom in IDM to enable the "Download this video" feature on web browsers.
