I'm trying to download this video from YouTube. I have tried FlashGot and Video DownloadHelper as Firefox extensions and a couple of online services which provide downloading videos from YouTube without success.

The strange thing is I can download any part of tutorial (total of 14 parts) except parts 2,4 and 8. When I download those parts the video has a single frame of picture (no videos in fact) and related sound.

How can I download those parts?

    Video DownloadHelper worked just fine for me for part 2. – DavidPostill May 27 '17 at 19:48
  • @DavidPostill: Thanks. Problem was VLC 2.2.2 and Totem plays the video. Still wondering what is wrong. Should I delete the question? – Xaqron May 27 '17 at 21:27
  • I'm running 2.2.4 and it works. You could self answer the question for the benefit of any future visitors. – DavidPostill May 27 '17 at 21:29

By the hint from DavidPostill's comment I found that the problem is really with VLC 2.2.2 on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS and other players (i.e. Totem) can play the video. Still VLC plays any other video very well including other parts of the tutorial.
