Yahoo! has once again changed their API. Although I have discovered how to obtain the direct download URL, it’s only a temporary URL which expires quickly. That makes it unusable on our site.
I apologize for this inconvenience and if there’s any further development, I’ll be sure to let you know.
I also plan on updating the Yahoo! download tutorial shortly.

Thanks for info and effort. It explains why the Yahoo trailers weren’t working earlier.
Keep up the good work you’re doing, and keep up surprising us…!!!
Thanks for the great site, but I am not able to get the tips for downloading from yahoo to work. When i open the link in a new tab or new window it never loads the trailer, only a blank screen. I am using Windows 7 and IE8. Thanks!
Looks like IE had a problem with our script. I’ve fixed it now. Let me know if you are still seeing problems.
Works! Thanks for the fast response!
Hi, I’m having trouble with the Yahoo downloads again. It seems I must have upgraded IE since the last time, I’m now running IE10. When I open a Yahoo trailer in a new window it takes several minutes to start playing, and when it does it’s very choppy and freezes frequently, and the Download button either never appears or it does not work to click it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
