I've tried downloading the converter by itself and as part of the full Free Studio package.
I've tried running the program before and after a full restart.
I've tried with Window's Firewall on and off.
I've tried with Kaspersky on and off.

Whether I click the paste button within the converter, right-click and choose paste, click the download video button that gets added below each youtube video, or the download playlist button that gets added to playlist pages, the program almost freezes my laptop.

For the next 10 minutes or so, my laptop runs extremely slow, almost frozen.  What functions/doesn't function seems random.  Trying to end the process by any means, including through Task Manager, has no affect, though the converter with eventually close, and my laptop does return to its normal running speed.

No video to download ever appears in the program.

Windows 7 Professional
Service Pack 1

Free YouTube to MP3 Converter  v. 3.12.2 build 430

I have exactly the same problem as W0WM4ST3R. When I paste a link in the converter and push download, the program freezes and my laptop is running slow for the next minutes. Maybe it has something to do with YouTube itself? Because a lot of youtube videos aren't loading well either since yesterday.

RapToP, thats not the problem I have.  Mine is that the program freezes when I click the "PASTE" button, or do any similar action.  Haven't even gotten to hitting the download button myself.

Just thought I'd set that straight.

Looks like my version of the problem is solved. I think youtube itself was indeed the problem, because YT loads videos normally since this morning.

Any idea what the difference was then?  Cause I've been having this issue for more than a week.

a quick fix that worked for me:
Open YT2MP3 Converter, goto Tools > Options , switch to the "General" Tab and uncheck "Use cookies"
I'm now able to download again

the point it's necessary to have some live feedback to implement a real fix in the forthcoming build. The quick fix you mentioned blocks downloading of some link types.
