Fix 2: Restart Device

Fix 3: Update or Reinstall VidMate
This error could be caused by a bug(s) on the app; hence, try and update VidMate to the latest version. However, you should note that VidMate is not certified fit by Google or Apple. So, if you are using an Android or iOS device, you can’t update the app from Play Store or App Store, as it’s not hosted on either of the sites.
To update VidMate, you’d have to give permission to your Android smartphone/tablet, by enabling the “Unknown sources” option; to “allow installation of apps from unknown sources”. Subsequently, go to the app’s official download site to install the latest version.
In addition, you can uninstall the app from your device and reinstall a new – updated – one afresh. This should fix the problem.
