"4.9.22 broken"

This has always been a useful tool however the new version, 4.9.22 is broken. I can no longer download uTube videos. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the old version but I can't get that to work now as well. The new version must have changed something under the hood which is not getting uninstalled or replaced by the older version

Pros
  • When it works this is a great add-on
Cons
  • 4.9.22 doesn't even recognize videos anymore
