I have been using YouTubeDownloader to get local copies of YouTube videos. I have been using v 2.7.2. Last night I checked, downloaded v 3.2 and installed it. It didn't use Orbit Downloader to download the test video and downloaded slowly, I put it down to a congested Internet connection. I tried again this morning, still slow. I checked the BienneSoft website, saw the Pro version there, read about it and found out that it does have download acceleration(but only 4x, I believe my Orbit uses 8 threads). It has a multi-download function, the license is $19.95 and doesn't expire. Do they really need to remove download acceleration to get people to buy the Pro version? After complaining and using the uninstall, I wasn't able to reinstall the 2.7.2 version. I got a message saying "You can't install an older version." I didn't take that lying down. I set a restore point before installing v3.2, so I used it and after Windows was finished re-booting, I was able to re-install v 2.7.2. I then found a v3.0 download and after sandboxing Windows Explorer using Sandboxie I tried installing v 3.0. I got the same message, so I dumped the sandbox. V 2.7.2 still worked fine and used Orbit. This is my warning:
Don't update to YouTubeDownloader v3.* unless you want to pay for the Pro vesion.
