That is why being aware of the issues and ways on how to fix it helps. Some issues were identified while developing it. So, we listed some workable solutions and facts you can refer to and do on your own without contacting our technical support representatives. Here are some of the inquiries received by our technical support representatives.
Question: Hi! I just downloaded your app moments ago. I am currently using the trial version because I want to see the credibility of the tool before buying it. So I tried to download by pasting the URL of the video, however, it won’t download when I click the “Paste URL” button.
Answer: Normally, you use the “Paste URL” button to paste the copied link to download it. Yes, that is right. However, you must also know the limitation of the feature. Sites have open source can only be downloaded through this method. If you are trying to download videos from Educational sites or Movie sites it won’t really work. This only works from sites that are less restrictive eg. Youtube, Twitch, Facebook, Instagram, Myspace, Rutube and a lot more. These sites are not encrypted. Moreover, it does not stop there, that is why auto-detect was developed to kill this limitation. Try downloading the video using the “Detect” tab instead. IF by any chance the video is still not downloaded, that means it is encrypted to avoid copyright issues
Question: However, I am just downloading videos from YouTube. There must be no problem, right? But the video is not downloading. IS there a way to fix it? Should I download it again? I will try to download and install the app I hope it works. I will let you know guys if the tool works after. But I hope to hear something from you, it will be a great help in the future.
Answer: If this is the case please try our alternative way of pasting the URL. From the main interface, click the second download button beside the “Paste URL” button. This tool is also for bulk/playlist download but it can be used as an alternative. It is a square shaped icon with an “arrow pointing down”. Once clicked a window will pop and from there paste the link by using your mouse or shortcut keys (ctrl+v for Windows)(Command+ V for Mac). Or click the “Paste URL” button below. Finally, click “okay” to initiate the download. See picture below for better understanding.
Question: I am downloading Movies using the Auto detection feature of the tool, but it suddenly stops and has a “red exclamation mark” beside it. What do I do? Should I repeat the download? Is there a way for me to continue the download without repeating it?
Answer: Possible cause is your Internet connection. Downloading videos need a reliable internet connection. If your internet is too slow or suddenly stops, this is the usual case. Do not worry though you won’t have to repeat the download once your internet is stable enough. Simply double click the download or right-click then choose “Start Download”.
The Library contains the “Recommended” “Recent” and the most popular videos you can find online. It is like a shortcut catalog instead of going to other websites. Also, a direct download button is infused to easily fetch the video. You can add multiple videos to your download list while browsing for more.
