I suggest FSS Video Downloader as a lighter and more "universal" alternative

its only 755kn and EASILY competes with this tool (Youtube Downloader HD) & VideoFrom Video Downloader

Midas on 2020-12-09 10:06

@aazard: in my brief testing, "FSS Video Downloader" depends on both 'MSVCR100.dll' and 'youtube-dl.exe', which significantly increase its size footprint; but even after manually downloading those dependencies to place them in program folder, FVD fails to download anything from YouTube in Windows 10, with a "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)" error...

Midas on 2020-12-10 09:10

After further testing, I was able to determine the error I reported was caused by "FSS Video Downloader" improper bitness detection -- it downloaded 'youtube-dl.exe' alright into '%LOCALAPPDATA%\FSSComponents' but, as this is a 32-bit program running on a 64-bit OS, it was unable to run.

Problem solved after downloading the right 32-bit dependencies and placing them in program folder, after which it ran fine -- with two caveats, no M4A option and extreme slowness compared to Youtube-dl itself. Moreover, it downloads to "My Documents" by default and gives the user no choice about it.

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.

If it ain't free it ain't 4me..... jus sayin :)

Is anybody else getting what looks like Arabic language when launching the installer? I don't want to click on any buttons because I have no idea what they mean.

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. :(
