    Joyce's previous comment 4 years ago - only video works no audio!

    I have been using the Classic Downloader only due to the options panels being there.
    1. One option that I'm not convinced is working is the "Desired Quality" in the OPTIONS/OUTPUT window. I choose the MP4 720p size and download several videos. When I play the resulting video files the video window change sizes from 320 to full screen. I have even chosen to change the option at the bottom of the main panel between the PASTE and DOWNLOAD buttons. I can't tell if that is making a difference. Which options to change to get what results need to be more obvious.
    2. Why is the Download Classic program closing and disappearing sometimes after the video is downloaded? it is not all the time and it is not due to some option that I'm setting. The only option that related to this possibility is the one to "Shutdown Computer When Done" and I haven't selected that option ever.
    This is a few items that need to be looked at.

    I have seen all the programs when they were first generation and they were beautiful in appearance and the interface was graphically complicated. Since then you have reduced the number of programs significantly (not really a problem with me because I thought there was some duplication) but you have removed a lot of choices. That is not good. I feel that the drastic changes have been made by someone without much thought, just hacked in some cases. Also, I feel that the graphic interface - now being a 2 dimensional copy of the Win 8.1 O/S is bland - and I'm so sorry that they started this look and feel for the rest of the world to copy.

    I just added my POST named DOWNLOAD vs DOWNLOAD CLASSIC and it brings up some of these issues from my point of view also.
    My basic question is WHY WAS THE previous version re-written and re-designed? The new one is not useful in reality. As you can see from all these people that have posted comments in here and separately they find it inappropriate for the task it was supposed to satisfy.
    I have seen several Start-Overs when it comes to the design of Free Studio and then all the sub programs. Most of these have produced a better streamlined product, but HERE is an example where Download was just messed up rather than fixed or streamlined.
    YouTube Download has been evolving with time to become just what circumstances required and now that it has been removed will it be recoverable so that it can be replaced and then continue on from there?
