The only other thing I can suggest regarding Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express is to close the browser, then open and reload the page. I only have trouble when I keep trying to download on the same page over and over.

Otherwise, no other suggestions.

The youtube-dl command line utility is updated regularly.

Try asking for help in the Reddit youtube-dl forum.

Maybe you can find a GUI program that uses the youtube-dl command line utility.

JackTheVideoRipper is a new GUI for youtube-dl on Windows 10

Hi morat,

I visited that page with release but I never get a Would You Like to Download this prompt? How does one download the Release on that page?

Also, I used a similar Command prompt a while back but it never asked me where I'd like to save the YT download - it just showed it was downloaded not where. Is there a way to make it download a YT where you want? If not, what's the default download folderfor this application?

I participated on Reddit a while back and it was a popularity contest. No one ever replied to my posts.

Is there another forum for this application?

Thanks.

The YouTube-DLG GUI utility was last updated in July 2017.

Releases for YouTube-DLG GUI utility
http://github.com/MrS0m30n3/youtube-dl-gui/releases

I posted the youtube-dl releases page to show you how often the utility is updated.

You can download the youtube-dl.exe executable from the download page.

The youtube-dl.py script requires python.

The youtube-dl.exe executable does not require python.

YouTube Video Downloader
https://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/

Download Page
https://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html

* click "Windows exe" to download the youtube-dl.exe executable

The youtube-dl.exe executable requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable x86. (vcredist_x86.exe)

The program can't start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

If you get the error running the youtube-dl.exe executable, then you need to install the vcredist_x86.exe file.

The youtube-dl.exe downloads into the current directory by default. (change directory with --output parameter)

youtube-dl.exe --help

youtube-dl.exe --format 18 "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J1lpgOk_QM" --output "C:\Users\Public\Downloads\DaVinci.%(ext)s"

There is no reason that "YouTube-DLG GU, youtube-dl-gui" should not work.
In fact, it uses youtube-dl.exe.
And, if youtube-dl.exe is out of date, it will download the latest version - automatically.
Fire 750, bring back 250.

You're right, therube. I missed that 'cause the project doesn't list youtube-dl in dependencies or requirements like other projects.
