XP users will not be able to use the latest stable release.
XP users need to use the 3dyd_1.10.2_beta1.exe
download link.

This is the best program for downloading anything from YouTube I have found.
@smaragdus - $9.95 USD is very reasonable, but really sucks that only minor updates are included :(

I've always used the batch program and not the standard version, although it works well too. The batch is superior for downloading multiple videos. I use an older free version of the batch program that's limited to a max of 5 simultaneous downloads. From what I understand, the new batch version doesn't work at all without purchasing a license.

mukhi: Please post about possible virus/malware issues in forums. Thanks.

Once again, the installer has malware/adware. Web of Trust rates the site with poor reputation in Trustworthiness and Child Safety. The application itself should be OK, but neither the installer nor the download link above is safe.

According to VirusTotal, the file at http://www.youtubedownloaderhd.com/files/youtube_downloader_hd.zip is clean... but check before using.

now the way to change the download directory:

edit the gPodderPortable.ini file within the App\AppInfo\Launcher directory and change the GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR=%PAL:DataDir%\config\Downloads line to something else. But it would be reset on each upgrade.

from a thread in the PortableApps forum

seems to work.

Hopefully other entries could be added including those already listed @TPFC like Gpodder.

1. Of course it is not 2GB, it is just a typo.
2. Downloads: http://sourceforge.net/projects/instagramsaver/files/
3. I don't know what "DriverSort.zip" is.

I updated the download links. Now it should work ;)
