Thank you for your posting - misery loves company. My old version of ClipGrab started advising "cannot retrieve video link" from the search option or when I cut and pasted the actual link from Youtube. I updated to version 3.8.4 and still got the error messages. I downloaded the 3.8.11 version but could not even open ClipGrab. I received the same error message you posted. The 3.8.4 version was also an Applmage file and it opened fine. I thought the problem with 3.8.11 was on my end and for a couple hours messed around with the terminal, and FUSE, etc. Thanks to you and the other's posting I now know it's a common flaw. I hope the ClipGrabbers can rectify the problems. It's a GREAT program when it works. I'd bet part of the trouble is at Youtube since I'm able to download music off Vimeo with ClipGrab 3.8.4.
