    "3.2 a downgrade"

    July 27, 2011  |   By 62mike


    still downloads from youtube


    cumbersome format, un-useable buttons, where's the volume control?


    tried it, dumped it, re-installed the previous one. not only is the new format cumbersome, it is cluttered with phantom buttons which are only functional in a new, paid version.
    i kept hoping they'd improve the volume control function; a necessity as audio level on youtube videos varies considerably. instead of adding gradations and making it available before conversion, they seem to have eliminated it entirely. at least i couldn't find it.
    supposedly, 3.2 will download from a few more sites; i've never been able to download from anything other than youtube which was good enough for what was originally billed as a free youtube downloader. i've found the firefox add-on "download helper" works well for many sites and gives a more predictable output format than those draw-a-box-around-it and-click-record 'wares.

    The volume control is on the Convert tab, you clock on Show advenced conversion options and it's there.
    What did you mean by improve the volume control function?
    Thank you,
