    I installed 5.0.10 and now it does not work. All I get is the hour glass and unresponsive. Seems something about the upgrade conflicts with my system.

    • by admin

      Hi Wayne! Please, describe your problem in details. Did any error messages appear? Describe what you are doing step-by-step so that it is more easy to find the cause of your problem.

  • by David Olson

    I can’t rip the audio from the video. How can I make it do so? Whenever I download it, all I get is the video.

  • by richard s

    the new 5.0.10 does not let me choose to download to avi..Whats up with that…

    • by admin

      Hi Richard! You select in the program Save as -> Original, but if you want to get .avi, you should select Converted. Then you will find the preset for converting to .avi.

    Hi, First off I adore your programs since music is the soundtrack of my life. But Im having major problems with the Free Youtube to MP3 converter: After adding the URLs, I click DOWNLOAD and it goes unresponsive causing me to end the program. I tried restarting my computer, then I deleted the program and downloaded it from here again and nothing, it still goes unresponsive. Is there something wrong with the program? Please let me know how to fix it since other programs in the web really suck compared to yours.
    Thank you!!

    • by admin

      Hi OriT! Please, describe your problem in details. What version of the program are you using? Do any error messages appear? Does it happen with all links?

    When I select vids to download on utube they show up in my download q as a playlist containing the same vid 4 times and then it downloads it 4 times, i can manually deselect 3 of em but it is a pain.

    I am using the autopaste from clipboard feature. I have played with the options but nothing seems to apply to this issue. I am on 3.0.2 currently build 620 but all of the 3 dot programs have done this.

    • by admin

      Hi Jon! Did you try to download links whithout unsing autopaste option. Please register here and send me a message. The subject should indicate “From Jon for Helene”. I’ll send you further instructions.

    “_ _span id=’eow-title’ class=” dir=’ltr’ title=’The title’_ The title”, and then the error message reads that it hasn’t downloaded some links. Is there a way to fix this??

  • by wayne R

    Ok so now I can download video (just like always) but with a funky progress – pain about setting the avi – BUT here’s the problem : the whole download youtube to Mp3 converter fails – total mess of tags. starts the download but fails to save any file due to errors. SO I have to down load video and then use the post download converter – NOT GOOD.

    I’ve had a issue with this. When I was attempting to open the program today, my cursor said activity was “sub-busy”, but then nothing happened. When I was gonna download an older version of the program, it was loading, then it popped up just fine. I was then gonna attempt to download a YT video, but when I pasted the link, it became unresponsive. I tried to exit, but it didn’t work, but that was when I got an error message saying that the environment was invalid. I was unknown what that meant, so I had to uninstall it and get an older version. Have you been having this issue too? If so, it might be my computer, not the program. Until then, I hope that the bug can be fixed so that I can use the new version, it has a lot of potential!

  • by eli

    when I try to download any video from youtube, I can not, because they never check out the …
    I tried to download only the audio and there was this check that never ends …

  • by eli

    when I try to download any YouTube video by copying and pasting the link, I can not, because the check never ends.
    I tried to download just the mp3 audio and is checking the URL.
    with that version 5.1.1 is not working to download resources.
    even after an hour waiting for such verification, it was still there.

  • by Gabrielle

    This new version DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO DOWNLOAD IN AVI. There is NO preset for “converted” as one admin suggested. You can only choose between original you tube, MP4, or AVI and AVI does NOT work. Please fix this.

    • by admin

      Gabrielle, please, describe your problem in details. What program and what version of it are you using? Did any error messages appear?
      Describe what you are doing step-by-step so that it is more easy to find the cause of your problem.

  • by Jockin Jay

    You guys forgot to add the album art to the program 😛
    Thanks for all you do! Can’t wait for a newer improved version, and hopefully when you guys get it right this time you will KEEP IT THAT WAY… I’m scared to buy the upgraded versions cause the free ones stop working every few weeks!

PLEASE HELP!!……..wish I could use the previous version…….very simple and on point……thanks!!!!!!

  • by Jockin Jay

    Youtube to Mp3 (3.10.5) doesn’t work either, keeps saying “Download .net” even though I’ve downloaded it like 10 times.

  • by Lee

    I was having some of the same problems as a lot of the people above. I deleted all the individual programs and downloaded the complete suite(full studio). No more problems this is hands down the best program paid or free I have been able to find. I do a lot of media work for friends and this studio has replaced a lot of complicated crap software I had. THANK YOU!!!!!!

  • by Freyja

    I have just re-downloaded the Free you tube downloader for the 3rd time in a week and I still keep getting the same message when i try to download a video: Download failed: Video detection error. I have tried to download several different videos and this is the message I get everytime. What can be done to fix this?

  • by Rachel

    I’ve used this program for a while now, and then I updated. What happened first was that when I moved the DVD… file to my “My Music” folder, all my music & videos ever downloaded disappeared. I no longer have a problem with this and have started re-downloading everything again. But then recently, when I try downloading anything, it fails, saying there is a “Video detection error”. Can you fix this? My friend who also had the same problem says that you guys emailed her back, when she emailed a complaint, saying it has something to do with youtube, and your trying to fix it. But now it’s working for her and not for me. Why is this?

  • by Alex

    Well I have been using DVD Video Soft for many years now. But until recently it wouldnt download any You Tube videos. I decided to re-install the program but an error message keeps popping up that I need a “.NET Framework” in order to continue. Now I already had it, but I clicked yes anyways and re-installed the framework. But after doing this multiple times, DVD Video soft wont install and wont work. I really want to fix this issue so that I may keep using the wonderful software.

    • by admin

      Hi Alex! This thread may be helpful for you. Please, post there.

  • by TF

    Since upgrading to 5.0.13 version, I am unable to download any videos from YouTube. What is up with that? Do I need to give up on DVD or do you have a fix for the problem? Thanks.

  • by Ally

  • by Pamela

    YouTube to mp3 Converter

    Yes, I know this page is for YouTube download, but I have to comment somewhere.
    Please could you include a ‘discard original video’ option in the ‘YouTube to mp3 Converter’ because it isn’t required if one only wants the Mp3.
    Otherwise, we would use the video downloader instead…. and now my music folder has videos in that my Media Player picks up on and plays as well as the audio file.
    I did wonder why my downloaded music played twice..!
    Sorry if this sounds picky, but I preferred the older format of that particular app.

    hugs and well wishes

    • by admin

      Hi Pamela! What version of the program do you have on your PC? When you have the version 3.10.6 build 727, please go to options -> output and check if you have marked “Save original YouTube files”. Uncheck this option. When you use the older version, please update your program.

  • by Eriador

    And its still not working.

    What now or mighty Admin 🙂
    Help us solve this problem.

    i already posted a request 🙂

    • by admin

      Eriador, first of all please check your version. The actual versions are Free Studio 5.1.5, Free YouTube Download 3.0.11, Free YouTube to Mp3 Converter 3.10.6. When you use actual versions and the program still causes problems, go to Options (main window of the program) – Advanced and unselect the “Enable cookies support” box. Try to download some links again.

  • by faranrenais

    hi i have been using your youtube to mp3 downloader for years now and all of a sudden with the latest version 3.10.5 it has started to malfunction I keep receiving the “video detection error”. Ive read on other forums that youtube has changed something with videos on their site (something to do with cosmic panda) so I’m wondering if you are developing something to address this issue? Thanks for your great products. I would like to hear back soon.

  • by Be

    Uh yeah, I’m having the same problems as everyone else I can’t download anything at all from YouTube. I hadn’t downloaded the new one so I did and now I just can’t download anything. The video info after I paste the URL will say 0kb and if I do click “download” all it ever says is “Download failed: Video downloading error” and I’ve uninstalled it and re-installed it several times now.

  • by Jazz

    Hey, I have an older version of the FreeStudio, and it keeps telling me to update it. However, when I come on here and click on the download links, none of them seem to work. I was wondering whether that was an internet error or something up with the site? It’s just my old version will no longer let me download anything and when it does, it comes up with the red error messages.
    Thanks guys!

  • by admin

    @Neuza, por favor, sigue esta instrucción:
    1. Uninstala Free Studio. Sigue a Inicio ->Todos los programas ->DVDVideoSoft->Uninstall
    2. Después descarga e instala la versión actualizada del programa.
    Ejecuta el programa, sigue Opciones… – Avanzado – desactiva la opción ”Activar el soporte de cookies”
    Trata de usar el programa otra vez.

  • by hmc Nb

    I have tried everything you have said (steps 1-3). I have the latest version of everything. I have unselected the “enable cookies support” box. I tried to load the video and then even played it through before pasting and nothing has worked on the Youtube Download. I have managed to get it to work as such on the Youtube to MP3 Converter.

    What should I do next?

  • by hmc Nb

    I have figured it out. The program does not work when the URL is an https. This was the problem I was having, and I just tried it using the plain http URL. It’s working, albeit a bit slowly. However, as these are long videos, I can understand that.

    Thank you for your help

      Hi Jian! We have not a version of our programs for MAC (only for windows OS). We are planning MAC OS support, but meanwhile we cannot promise when. Try to use a program CrossOver Mac to run win applications on MAC.

    I recently downloaded the most recent version of the Youtube to MP3 convertor, but now I can’t even download anything at all.

    Each time I paste a video, I click the blue button and start the download. A few seconds later, it says “video downloading error”. I click the “learn more” button and it says “video downloading error”. What happened? How can I fix this?

    • by admin

      Hi, if you experience problems with the program, would you please submit a request about it at our Help Desk?

  • by Brandon T.

    My problem is the same as td_g. I just downloaded the newest version of the youtube to mp3 converter but i get the “video downloading error” message. HELP PLEASE!!!!!

  • by BT

    I get the same thing as td_g. I did *not* update, but suddenly started getting this with I believe versio n3.11.23 or .22 or something. Then I updated to 3.11.26 but no love. Uninstalled totally, Reinstalled. Still doesn’t work. Maybe youtube changed something?
