Wow. It just worked. i don't know if sometimes there are issues with the videos themselves but the method you gave just worked! Thanks.
I think the only thing was I had to hunt a bit for the downloaded video, that is the save location. It turned out to be in the Video folder with a vlc-... to the file name of the actual video.
Once again. Thanks and have a good day.
