    I've seen this popup a couple of times before. And apparently not a lot of people know about this...
    So I've made a quick tutorial about a workaround (ignore the ugly drawings... you'll understand what I mean).

    So there's a relatively easy solution.
    I'll be using this post as an example:
    https://sharemania.org/threads/ariana-grande-future-everyday-official-lyric-video-vevo-1080p.141096/

    You need a Google Drive account. (and logged in).
    I'm using a Computer. (So if anyone is using a phone... which I doubt. It could work but I don't know. Never tried it.).

    Ok so:
    1. You go to the download page (the first one that pops up, not the one with the error).
    [​IMG]
    2. You click on the "Add shortcut to Drive" icon on the top right.
    [​IMG]
    3. Click on the arrow next to "My Drive".
    4. Make a new folder using the folder icon in the bottom left. (name doesn't matter).
    5. Go into your newly made folder.
    6. Click on "Add shortcut here".
    [​IMG]
    Now. You need to go to your Google Drive, and you should be able to see the folder containing the file(s) you want to download.
    7. Right click on the folder which has the file(s) you want, and click download.
    [​IMG]
    It should now Zip the folder containing the file(s) you wanted, and you can now download that Zip on your PC. (You need to unzip it after it's finished downloading of course).

    And there you go, you should now have the file(s) you want!

    This method no longer works, sadly.

    I think you did something wrong... Because I just did it again, it still works.
