Question [Account required] JD2 can't download age-restricted videos anymore. Any solution?

Was this done intentionally by the devs?? Or is it YT's doing? Is it going to be fixed?

I do not use Google account, so I relied on JD2 to download such videos. YT can get anything age-restricted.

Grateful for any info.

Google just complies with new requirements for age checks and you have to use your Google account in JDownloader.
I've also read that YT even might ask you to verify your age via passport.
Just add your google account, see https://support.jdownloader.org/Know...n-instructions

Just add your google account, see **External links are only visible to Support Staff**...
So if I have no Google account – I can't download age-restricted videos with J2 anymore? This is not going to be fixed, workaround to be found?

Exactly.

No there is not workaround available anymore.
Either create a google account or use other online webtools for this purpose.
They will internally use a Google account to circumvent this.

@azat11:
There is nothing to fix. Also in browser you have to be logged in in order to view age restricted videos. The *workarounds* from the past has all been closed by Yt

So our overlords have done it...I guess it had to happen. I hope this will inspire many to decentralize (LBRY;)).

Thanks to everyone for replies.
