I definitely was thinking the interface looked odd and that there wasn't much here, and then I saw the quality select and "play while downloading." Very nice.

Ran a test on this today, had a program crash when I tried to select a playlist. Has anyone figured out how to do batch downloads?

for me it worked setting max concurrent downloads to only one at a time, do note there is a newer version as well wich fixes a bug in the playlist download process

I would add more settings as well, especially about user interface. It's not important, but it's always better to let users make something they can do by themselves. Of course, you can always ask professional technicians from IT agencies, like this one ( https://sphereit.uk/managed-it-services-london/ ), because they have a lot of solutions and resources to solve any tech problem, but it's not always necessary.
