Did youtube threaten sites/program developers so they cant make vids d/l-able?

Did youtube threaten sites/program developers so they cant make vevo or any popular artists videos downloadable? That would be the only reason why things like download helper or other popular sites and programs can't download music videos from popular artists any more. I'd imagine it would be easy to bypass youtube's encryption or whatever and make them downloadable because it's happened in the past.

Have an example of a popular artist? I just tried on a couple different videos and DownloadHelper can still download just fine.

I just tried it with download helper and it didn't work. What happens is once I click on the save destination, the download button appears as if something is finished downloading and when I try to play that video with vlc it just shows a blank screen. What I downloaded was something that is 0 bytes.

You can CTRL SHIFT J in chrome in the networks
look for video url
and copy url

and change range parameter from 0 to wherever the end is... i guess in bytes
just do like 99999999999999999999999 or something

but then youtube seems to have changed something so that video is separate from audio...

so i get the video but no audio
