Opera 50 is available. Not Beta. https://get.geo.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop/50.0.2762.45/

Opera is built on Chromium, the open-source version of Chrome, and as well as having its own extensions is compatible with most Chrome extensions (but not Chrome Applications).
The reference to the older version of Opera (v12) should also identify that it also lacks many of the modern features that are only available in the newer versions, e.g. Chrome compatibility, built in ad-blocker and free VPN, etc.

jcaiken: Thanks for the suggestions but these entries really aim to just be a summary of the application. There's really no way to make sure we're highlighting all the tech, features, and difference from other applications, but you're right that the ad-bocking by default is notable so I'll add that in.

Also, should note that the included "VPN" is really just a proxy.

Werner: billon got it updated, thanks for the note

Werner on 2018-09-03 17:07

@webfork: Thanks a lot, however, it still does not work for me. Either it is a problem with my machine or Instagram has changed something after the last update of InstagramSaver. I would be happy to hear if it does work for others.

Not working for me, too. :(

@smaragdus

Thanks. :)

Fosshub links are fixed.

hamasaki on 2017-07-18 13:00

Thanks. Ok, two problems for me with the software.

1. There is no sound at all. No problems with all other players on my comp, but this one no sound at all.

2. If I add a folder of MP3 files it adds the files ok, but if I use the option to add a file, the interface flickers and does nothing. I try again, flickers, then after a few seconds crashes.

I`m on Win 10 64Bit.

@stisev: programs like this need constant updating to get around youtube's various limitations, and this one hasn't been updated in a while. Anyway, the developer "ozok" has (in the past) been active here on the site. Feel free to drop him a line.

smaragdus on 2017-03-20 00:08

youtube-dl (youtube-dl.exe - https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/releases) can be updated both manually and automatically ("Update download engine" button in the tool-bar). FFmpeg can also be updated manually. MediaInfo.dll- too. TVideoDownloader is just a front-end to command-line downloader youtube-dl so it is not actually downloading anything but sending commands to youtube-dl.

When becomes TVideodownloader updated? It´s not working anymore on almost all websites i use. Before it downloaded just fine.
