Lately some ( streaming video ) Webpages are not working, after I start VSO Downloader.

On screen there comes a message -

*** ***
Error 1020 - Access Denied - Cloudflare
This website is using a Cloudflare security service to protect itself from online attacks.
Cloudflare Ray ID: 63d7050e8d611699 • Your IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx • Performance & security by Cloudflare
*** ***
When I switch off VSO Downloader - Web site is immediately working correctly, streaming video.
I understand that case so, that this Cloudflare security protection recognizes that I am using
( VSO ) video downloader - and denies it's using by just blocking VSO Downloader user from seeing streaming video.

That site is checking for proxy. Downloader acts as a proxy to be able to catch streams.

This is the dry technical explanation. For me, as VSO Downloader user,
it means that this downloader is not usable any more for download from those pages.

And this WebPage Cloudflare protection is not protecting against attacks -
it is eliminating possibility of download. I have no intentions to attack any Web pages... :)
