THERE IS NO SOUND FOR THE DOWNLOADED VIDEO, WHY?

If you encounter sound issues with the downloaded videos, please update your media player codecs. Otherwise, we recommend you to use VLC player and  download it free from here: http://www.videolan.org/.

HOW CAN I RECORD VIDEOS WITH YTD?

YTD Free Video Downloader uses the URL from the web browser to download a video. Copy the URL from the address bar of your web browser and paste it to YTD and select “Download” to download the video to your computer.

SOME VIDEOS DOWNLOADED WITH YTD HAVE AN UNKNOWN FILE TYPE, WHY?

  • We can find several video formats on video sites. Most common forms are “flv” and “mp4”. YTD will download videos in their original format. In case a downloaded video doesn’t contain its extension within the filename (for example, is missing the “.mp4”), you will need to identify the correct the video file and rename it accordingly. For that open the video file in a text editor program such as Notepad and see if the first line of the file has “flv” or “mp4” in it.
  • If your computer doesn’t recognize a certain format and cannot play it, we recommend you to use the following program: VLC Media Player is a free, open-source program that can play almost any video type without requiring additional software. It also tells you what type of video a file is (load the video and select “Media Info” under the Tools menu).

I AM ASKING FOR A USERNAME/PASSWORD WHEN DOWNLOADING A VIDEO FROM FACEBOOK, WHY?

A login required by Facebook to access any content. YTD will prompt you for your Facebook username and password when each time when you want to download a video from Facebook. Enter the same username and password you used to log in to Facebook.

I AM USING A PROXY SERVER FOR DOWNLOADING.

YTD uses the default proxy server defined in Internet Explorer Options. Set your proxy settings there.

The proxy server is requesting a password.

YTD DOES NOT ALLOW THE USE OF A PASSWORD FOR HTTP PROXY.

Converting and playing videos

WHY I AM RECEIVING AN ERROR MESSAGE WHEN ATTEMPTING TO CONVERT?

  • In case you receive the following message: “The conversion of your video file has failed, etc.” please check the file name under “Select video file” and make sure it is appropriately set.
  • This filename needs to be a full path to the file, not just the name of the data. For example, if you downloaded a video and saved it as “myvideo.mp4” in your “C:Videos” folder, the “Select video file” box should have “C: Videos myvideo.mp4” in it not just “myvideo.mp4” (no directory name) or “C: Videos myvideo” (no file extension, e.g. “.mp4”).
  • To get the entire file path in the “Select video file” box, click the “Browse” button and locate the video on your drive, select it and try the conversion again, making sure the entire file and path are present and correct.
  • In case you are still receiving the error message, you may miss a codec or have conflicting codecs on your computer. This is likely if you are using the older version of Windows or you have many video processing applications on your computer.
  • You will need to identify what codec is missing or corrupt and fix it. There are several codec packs available at sites like download.com, e.g., Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack however we do not recommend, we do not endorse, and we are not responsible for a particular codec pack.

REMOVING THE VIDEO AND KEEPING ONLY THE AUDIO, HOW?

Go to the Convert tab, select the video file and choose MPEG Audio Layer 3 (MP3) from the drop-down menu. In the “Choose Quality” dialogue, you can select the quality of the mp3 output file.

Keep in mind that a higher quality implies a larger file size. You can change the volume or select only a particular part of the video from the advanced conversion options. Click “Convert Video” and follow the progress in the activity tab.

I AM CONVERTING A VIDEO WITH YTD FOR IPOD TOUCH, BUT HOW?

Since the iPod Touch is more similar to the iPhone than to the iPod, to convert videos for iPod Touch, please choose “iPhone Video” as the file type in the Convert tab.

I AM NOT ABLE TO PLAY A VIDEO FILE CONVERTED USING YTD, WHY?

It is possible that your computer does not recognize the format of the output file. For best playback results, we recommend you to install VLC Media Player. In case you are using Windows Media Player, you need to install or upgrade your audio and video codecs with a product such as the Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack.

I AM CONVERTING A FILE TO VIDEO DVD OR AUDIO CD, HOW?

YTD downloads videos from various sites and converts them to several formats. Creating a video DVD or audio CD requires converting audio and video to the correct types and formats, and the ability to write files with correct names and locations. There are several commercial and free products available that will help you create a video DVD or audio CD with videos downloaded using YTD.

CONVERTING TO PSP FORMAT IS FAILING, WHY?

Converting a file in PSP requires both audio and video data. MP3 files will not be successfully converted to PSP. Also, video files without sound or with the volume set to 0 will not be converted to PSP. Make sure your file has both audio and video data before converting to PSP.

I WANT DOWNLOADING VIDEOS WITH SUBTITLES USING YTD, IS IT POSSIBLE?

YTD will download only the original video. The subtitles are separately introduced in it and will not be downloaded by YTD.
