    "stopped working."

    September 6, 2012  |   By 62mike

    Pros

    simple to use when it did work.

    Cons

    doesn't work anymore; just gives failed(6) error.

    Summary

    i recommend the dvdvideosoft.com product(s) - all freeware. their downloader is also paste-and-go with added flexibility. i've only ever had problems when downloading long playlists in the background while doing other things online; on it's own it works just fine.
    they also make a youtube to mp3 (or wav) converter for separating out the audio - also great; sound quality as good as the video itself. as well as a video to dvd converter for making compilations of various video clips on a dvd. many other small, simple desktop "buttons" each of which does one or two basic things and does them well.

    P.S. the video-to-dvd converter above is very sensitive to some automatic windows updates; i've had to do system restores, un-and-re-installs etc to keep it working. i stopped the auto-updates; just select the few needed ones (if any). no further problems with this or other software. this program has been so handy for me that it's worth a little hassle to keep it going. never had any such problems with the other dvdvideosoft freebies i use.

    the " failed 6" error was the result of youtube operational changes; they do this every so often and it screws up this and other downloaders until they're adapted. dvdvideosoft makes a good one. i keep the above as a spare; when one stops working the other may still be ok.
