when trying to download a youtube video, it throws this error and the download doesn't start:

Unfortunately none is working on that plugin anymore so we might deactivate it in the future.

SVN commit 1248744 by mfuchs:

Do not compile the Content Fetch plugin.

The content fetch plugin is currently not maintainted and
the only plugin for it stopped working quite some time ago.
Until both changes there is no reason to keep it activated.

As mentioned above none is working on that specific code anymore so the Content Fetch plugin won't be compiled from now on.

In general its structure was not flexible enough to keep up with the fast pace of websites changing so it would need quite a rework.

All this is on our ever growing todo list though has a very low priority.
Thus we can't give you an estimate when or if ever this feature will return.
If there are any updates on this they will be reported to bug #194143.
