This error can occur when converting YouTube videos to animated GIF's and means that the video can not be converted because it has a age restriction or has been removed, or is being viewed from the wrong country. While there is nothing that can be done about videos that have been removed, there are solutions for the other two errors.
Solving the Age Restriction Error
To view a video with a age restriction, you need to use a YouTube account in which you have confirmed your age. To do this you should be logged in to YouTube and open developer tools in your browser, usually by pressing F12, then find the cookies for the webpage. Then identify the YouTube's session cookies, which currently are called
SSID. Then add name, domain and value of these cookies to GrabzIt by using the custom cookies page, it is a good idea to use a expiration date a long time in the future to ensure the session cookie is not deleted. Note this is done at your own risk and we accept no liability as per our terms and conditions.
Solving the Wrong Country Error
You may be able to bypass this problem by specifying a different country code when making the request to convert a video that is restricted to one country.
Currently a country can be set to either the US, UK or Singapore, below is an example of setting the country for each of our API Libraries.
