Unfortunately since the last update (rollback) to version 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4257.549)
The video down loader no longer works.
We've already been advised that updates may not happen till Feb.

Okay good to know, so we can expect it to work again in February? Would be nice to get that download option back.
