    Clibgrab is an electron app. So, is better you donwload it again in https://clipgrab.org/

    Is an executable stuff, you don't need to install it.

    for youtube stuff I prefer using a browser extension as they're small and they let me chose what stream to get and don't do any useless conversion
    I'd say try
    for youtube only
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...nload-youtube/
    for almost all sites including youtube flashgot
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ddon/flashgot/
    just beware some of the youtube downloaders on mozilla and google extension stores are known as ads injectors (like video download helper)
    you can also use js files with greasemonkey

    The latest clipgrab version is 3.5.x. It's available from Packman but I'm not sure about os 13.2. I thought support had stopped for that.

    HTML Code:

    Thanks for that. I have used clipgrab for years (both with opensuse and windows) but the firefox add-on is much better.

    The error the poster is receiving is due to the older version (3.5.6) available for opensuse compared to the windows version (3.6.4) which has kept up with the changing protocals used by youtube.
