Thanks but I have the latest one, it just stopped working a few days ago. Version is 3.9.6, it's dead, I was just wondering if there was another program that didn't break. I think YT changed something and the people that program the DL programs are sorting it out.
Seems to be working okay? I don't post new version updates here as often as I don't like it as much as I used to. They sure do like trying to push you to upgrade to Pro. I even had a pop-up window appear while trying to simply launch the program. HAd to close it before I could even use the program. But, it still works. -- Remember that cool hidden "Graffiti Wall" here on BBR? After the name change I became the "owner", so to speak as it became: Dustyn's Wall »[Serious] RIP
The only thing that I can think of is that if these are working for other folk is that maybe it's my failing DVD drive. I've noticed that when it's removed that there's some weird hiss on the playback of a lot of locally stored songs. There might be some relation there, I dunno. I wont get a new drive until next week, so I'll have to try again then.
Google has been playing around with native HTML5 coding for about a year. Last spring I ran into a couple of pages which made DownloadHelper (Firefox extension) hiccup but haven't seen any since. Have grabbed ~4 vids in the last 24hrs.
Agree with darcilicious : post a problem link so we can see what's changed.
It's all working now... I downloaded a bunch of stuff and that didn't work, then let it ride for some days and now YTD is performing like the champ it is. When I last updated YTD I got bizarroworld errors, now no errors.
Thanks all, cheers, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Strangely enough, I think it might have been the DVD drive on this computer that I'm using, it's been going whacko and not being recognized from time to time. It's recognized this time. Since everyone else's DLs from YTD are working properly and we're using the same version, that's really the only thing I can point a finger at.
I updated some LAN drivers from Intel in the meantime as well, but I suspect that it's not that.
That or as some others have suggested, YT has been dorking with us. I like to DL from YT, just because the sound quality is tons better when I play the things without flash graphics intervention and also because a lot of things disappear from YT, and if I have it local, they can't disappear it... boo boo said Casper the friendly ghost in the machine!
Mine just started working again. I think the makers were having issues. (possibly)
I didn't do anything, just simply gave up. Two days later its working again. -- Long you live and high you fly, and smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry, and all you touch and all you see, is all your life will ever be.
