Here's a wild idea. Maybe if the downloader program is readily seen as such, it amounts to a not-quite-tacit informal agreement with Youtube? In such a case does it become an "OK, we'll let you do this, but we may put you on a slower channel" sort of thing? Who knows? Youtube is not my thing, so I've got no clues in this corner. Perhaps the UA was randomly chosen, and maybe it doesn't matter. I don't know what their policies are at Youtube. There may not even be any restrictions, other than for their own desires for load management. Can anyone chip in on this?
I do know they don't release software on New Year's Day. That's half of the uniqueness of the UA. The other half is "(Chrome)".
