I went digging for this and got frustrated and pushed it back. I went back again today and same results. No idea how to get this one.

TP109: Thanks but I can't tell if that's the installer or the plain EXE because it's using brothersoft's weird downloader.

VDownloader v0.73 Private

Checker on 9 May 2013

VDownloader is a download manager for video sharing sites such as YouTube, Google Video, Grinvi and DailyMotion. Given the URL for a video clip, it downloads the clip and automatically converts it to AVI, MPEG or PSP. It supports batch downloading and clipboard monitoring.

Note: The latest version (0.77) of VDownloader writes settings to the user profile folder. As such, I am making the older version (0.73) available for direct download until further notice. Alternatively, you can try the JPE launcher for this application.

System requirements: Win98 / WinME / Win2K / WinXP / Vista
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: System codecs
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the zipped installer and extract to a temporary folder
  2. Move the files inside the {app} to a folder of your choice
  3. Delete eBay_shortcuts_1029.exe
  4. Launch VDownloader.exe.

You don't have to extract anything, just unzip the package and launch VDownloader.exe

I've tried using this app several times and I'm getting a URL not valid error. I've tried to cut and paste the URL from FireFox and used the embedded browser in VDownloader. Even when selecting a video from inside the VDownloader browser and playing it, when I try to download it tells me it's not a valid URL. It's not a firewall issue (I'm assuming that because VDownloader loads YouTube in the browser just fine). After about 5 tries I brought up Youtube Downloader HD and it download the file from the same URL that VDownloader says isn't valid. I've never used this particular app before but I didn't see anyone else with the same problem so I'm stumped. Anyone have any ideas?

BillO255: I didn't have great luck with VDownloader -- I'd recommend trying one of the other download tools on the site including YoutubeDownloaderHD or Video Backup Fusion.
