I'm currently experiencing the following problem with DAP when attempting to download videos from YouTube (I can still download content from dailymotion.com).
I click on the "Download Video" button on the tool bar; after which I enter the link (I tended to copy and paste from Chrome's address bar - but the problem is the same if I use the integrated buttons below the YouTube video pane ).
After verifying the DAP manager finds the various types of video format for the given link. I generally select MP4, but I've tried each of the formats as a check.
I click the "download now" button and the next window moves to initializing; however instead of commencing the download the program re-boots initialization five times (blinking 5 times), then the initialization window closes and the download is reported as broken / failed.
The problem is repeated when I try to resume the download or attempt to force the download.
I've been experiencing this problem for about 2 weeks now - any ideas why I can't get YouTube videos, when the program works with dailymotion.com? I've uninstalled and re-installed DAP twice to no avail.
I'm using Windows 7 Premium on a Acer Aspire 5741 laptop - which runs like a well oiled machine.
I understand that YouTube is running more and more anti-leeching codes to id programs. Might be the problem. Thanks for the posts. I'll switch to a different program, like you say maybe DAP is blocked. Cheers, Han.
