Re: Pontes media downloader issues, need help please

 

Well looking at yt-dl on github it also has the ffmpeg builds.

Now for those having an issue I do wander what would happen if you backed up youtubedownloader.exe, named yt-dl.exe youtubedownloader.exe and tried to get the vid with that?

Have you contacted pontes on this.

If no one has I will try to do so and see if they can update their program.

Hi all.
Pontes media downloader uses youtube-dl for downloading of videos. and
youtube-dl is outdated now.
That's why downloading speed is very slow.
now, another tool yt-dlp is working as same. if developers of pontes
could update pontes media downloader with yt-dlp, problem can be
solved.
but I couldn't understand your error. can you explain the error to me again?

Hello Dan,

It seems that Pontes Media downloader is now being blocked by youtube.
At first it appeared to be in just a few geographic regions, but it is

What you wrote stated that you teach alt d.  I don’t know if you teach f6 to do this as well but you strongly implied not.
 
You said in part:
It's the one I teach when someone needs to get to the address bar either to copy the current address, or to enter a new one.  The fact that ALT + D not only throws focus there, but also selects the content, makes it perfect for either task.  As I said, alt d doesn’t select anything, it just moves youthere.
 
I wanted to explain why I use f6 so others may consider which they prefer when they are in a document and want to get to the address bar to copy the address.  I don’t use f6 to get to the address bar to manually type a new address.  .

It is, however, important to understand the commands you are using.  That's all this was about.

The content is already selected.  It doesn’t matterif you use alt d or f6.  I think this is a matter of preference.  I use f6 because of what I’ll call consistency of using the same command.  In most browsers I’ve used, pressing f6 once takes me to the address bar.  When I want to return to the document, shift f6 may be used.  If I use just f6, I may move through one or two other structures, depending on what is opened, such as history or book marks but then I return to the main window.  I prefer using f6 to move to the address bar and something like shift f6 or repeating f6 again.  As I said, I like the consistency of the command.  Alt d to move to the address bar, then shift f6 to return to the document are two different commands.  I ;prefer using a one hand command.  As I said, this is a matter of preference.

Re: Punctuation

 

Just tossing out that you can also use configuration profiles based on the app you're using, that trigger automatically when that app has focus.

You'd still do what Gene has instructed, but if you want to limit these changes based upon what program/app you happen to be using NVDA to access at any given time, you may also want to set up separate application-specific configuration profiles.

It is important to know about the f6 command.  It is not specific to any browser and it is actually a Windows command.  Many windows are divided into sections, called panes.  A window might have a tool bar in a pane and the main window is in another pane.  Pressing f6 moves you from pane to pane.

Agreed.  But I want to emphasize something you've already said:  This is a Windows Command, and it's the "jump to next pane, or screen element/area," command.  You eventually circle back to wherever you started when you first hit F6.  From the Microsoft help page entitled, Use a screen reader to explore and navigate File Explorer in Windows, and it's talked about many other places, too:
Cycle through the main screen elements

Press F6 (forward) or Shift+F6 (backward) to cycle through the main elements of File Explorer in the following order:

  • The content pane taking up most of the screen

  • The sorting buttons for the content pane (if the content pane is in the Details view mode)

  • The status bar at the bottom of the screen, containing buttons for changing the view mode

  • The toolbar at the top of the screen, containing navigation buttons and the Search box

  • The navigation pane on the left side of the screen

Hello Gene,

I wasn't aware of that, but it is a good point. I must confess that my view of Microsoft has changed during the past few years, so where I can find a non Microsoft alternative I move in that direction. I have begun using Brave during the past month and I really like it. Give me a call when you're ready to talk!

Hello Dan,

I apologize for causing more confusion than clarity. I typed my response in a rush, and should have waited until I had more time to be clear.

 

The method I was describing is not a program like Pontes that one would download and install. It is instead simply a web based service, which will access the YouTube video at the address link specified by the user, then copy that video to its website for processing. Once it is finished processing which takes a few seconds, it provides a link a user can click on, and download the video or audio file to a local computer.

 

The website for the service I described is:

www.yt5s.com

 

The www.yt5s.com service can be used 2 different ways.

The way I initially described is the quickest method, because it eliminates a couple of steps.

The second method works as follows.

 

While on the YouTube webpage for the audio or video that one wishes to download, the address link for that specific youtube must be copied in some way to the clipboard just as is the case with Pontes Media Downloader.

 

I always do this by pressing function key 6, and this takes me to a window which contains the entire youtube link and nothing else.

I just tested again on my computer since others are apparently obtaining a different result which leaves me puzzled.

I just went to a youtube video page using Brave, Google Chrome, and Firefox, and pressing function key 6 in each browser provides the youtube page address.

 

So I guess I would say that using whatever people use to copy the YouTube address to the clipboard when using Pontes Media Downloader should be followed here also.

 

Once that youtube address is shown, the user has 2 options when using the www.yt5s.com service to download a video or audio.

 

The first method is the one I described in my previous post, which is to simply edit the displayed address by inserting the 2 characters 5s into the address, then pressing enter.

Example:

If the YouTube address being displayed is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXopgNU2sNY&ab_channel=DarrelWilson

 

Edit/modify  the address by inserting the 2 characters 5s after youtube and before .com so that it reads as follows:

 

https://www.youtube5s.com/watch?v=CXopgNU2sNY&ab_channel=DarrelWilson

 

After making this 2 letter modification to the youtube address, pressing the enter key will automatically take a user to the www.yt5s.com website with the conversion and download ready to go by simply clicking the get file button, then pressing enter on download file.


The alternative method for using the www.yt5s.com service is similar to Pontes Media Downloader, though there is no program to download and install like Pontes. Everything is done using your web browser.

 

The first stetp as with Pontes is to get to the YouTube video address in whatever way you typically do, for me funtion key 6.

Once there copy the address to the clipboard.

Next point your browser to the website, www.yt5s.com.

Once there, a form field is available where you must paste the YouTube address from your clipboard into the field.

 

Click on the button which says get video.

In a few seconds a link will appear which says download, so click on that link.

The standard Windows download options are presented for downloading to your computer.

 

This is certainly not a replacement for Pontes Media Downloader. Pontes is especially wonderful since it enables the downloading of entire playlists. I do find my downloads to be quicker than with Pontes, but this does not offset the loss of being able to download playlists.

 

Please let me know if I can provide any additional info.

Warmest regards,

Dennis

So far, I have not found a browser that does not support this way of doing it and it always takes focus straight to the address bar. The first press of F6 will not necessarily move focus to where you want it.

The alternative method for using the www.yt5s.com service is similar to Pontes Media Downloader, though there is no program to download and install like Pontes. Everything is done using your web browser.

 

The first stetp as with Pontes is to get to the YouTube video address in whatever way you typically do, for me funtion key 6.

Once there copy the address to the clipboard.

Next point your browser to the website, www.yt5s.com.

Once there, a form field is available where you must paste the YouTube address from your clipboard into the field.

 

Click on the button which says get video.

In a few seconds a link will appear which says download, so click on that link.

The standard Windows download options are presented for downloading to your computer.

 

This is certainly not a replacement for Pontes Media Downloader. Pontes is especially wonderful since it enables the downloading of entire playlists. I do find my downloads to be quicker than with Pontes, but this does not offset the loss of being able to download playlists.

 

Please let me know if I can provide any additional info.

Warmest regards,

Dennis

Hello Dan,

It seems that Pontes Media downloader is now being blocked by youtube. At first it appeared to be in just a few geographic regions, but it is now pretty universal. I just posted a method for downloading mp3 or mp4 files from youtube, and it works well. Let me know if I can help.

Best,

Dennis

Hello Dan,

I apologize for causing more confusion than clarity. I typed my response in a rush, and should have waited until I had more time to be clear.


The method I was describing is not a program like Pontes that one would download and install. It is instead simply a web based service, which will access the YouTube video at the address link specified by the user, then copy that video to its website for processing. Once it is finished processing which takes a few seconds, it provides a link a user can click on, and download the video or audio file to a local computer.


The website for the service I described is:

www.yt5s.com


The www.yt5s.com service can be used 2 different ways.

The way I initially described is the quickest method, because it eliminates a couple of steps.

The second method works as follows.


While on the YouTube webpage for the audio or video that one wishes to download, the address link for that specific youtube must be copied in some way to the clipboard just as is the case with Pontes Media Downloader.


I always do this by pressing function key 6, and this takes me to a window which contains the entire youtube link and nothing else.

I just tested again on my computer since others are apparently obtaining a different result which leaves me puzzled.

I just went to a youtube video page using Brave, Google Chrome, and Firefox, and pressing function key 6 in each browser provides the youtube page address.


So I guess I would say that using whatever people use to copy the YouTube address to the clipboard when using Pontes Media Downloader should be followed here also.


Once that youtube address is shown, the user has 2 options when using the www.yt5s.com service to download a video or audio.


The first method is the one I described in my previous post, which is to simply edit the displayed address by inserting the 2 characters 5s into the address, then pressing enter.

Example:

If the YouTube address being displayed is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXopgNU2sNY&ab_channel=DarrelWilson


Edit/modify  the address by inserting the 2 characters 5s after youtube and before .com so that it reads as follows:


https://www.youtube5s.com/watch?v=CXopgNU2sNY&ab_channel=DarrelWilson


After making this 2 letter modification to the youtube address, pressing the enter key will automatically take a user to the www.yt5s.com website with the conversion and download ready to go by simply clicking the get file button, then pressing enter on download file.

You can control punctuation in the speech settings dialog.  The shortcut command to open it is NVDA key control v.  You can also control them with the command NVDA key plus the letter p.  You will cycle through various punctuation levels.  I  believe the default is some.  If you set punctuation to none, you won’t hear any punctuation.

Re: strange behaviour on google doc with nvda

Dave Grossoehme
 

It sounds like this counter is starting at 0.  In which case this would be correct.  If you ask for the first paragraph the counter is at 0.  If you ask for the second paragraph the counter is at 1.  If you ask for the 3rd paragraph the counter is at 2, in which case you would be reading the 2nd paragraph instead of the 3rd paragraph.  Has anyone looked at the paragraph counter for the nvda counter for the program or application you are reading from?  I have seen this happen in older computer coding such as the c language.

I use windows 10 21h2, nvda 2021.3 and google chrome latest. I use google doc. Sometimes, I notice strange behavior. If I try to read a paragraph, sometimes nvda does not change focus as it is expected. For example, I want to read the third paragraph. if I navigate paragraph by paragraph, nvda reads the second paragraph instead of the third paragraph. The performance of my computer is smooth. it does not hang. I even checked the changing window that time. it changes immediately. Sometimes, if I delete a character, nvda does not announce the deleted character. actually sometimes it announces and sometimes it does not announce anything during deleting characters. How can I fix them? Both screen reader and braille support are enabled. I do not have any brail device.

Re: application to download videos from youtube

Gene
 

It is important to know about the f6 command.  It is not specific to any browser and it is actually a Windows command.  Many windows are divided into sections, called panes.  A window might have a tool bar in a pane and the main window is in another pane.  Pressing f6 moves you from pane to pane.  In Thunderbird, using f6 moves you from the folders treeview to the mailbox you have selected in the treeview.  It skips all the other items you might tab through if they are set to be shown in the program.
 
In Audacity, an audio recorder, f6, when used repeatedly, will move you to various structures such as tool bars you may want to work with and and to the main window if you have left it by pressing f6.

Hello,

One download solution which works quite well is the following.

While on the youtube page for the video you wish to download, press F6 to get to the URL link for the page.

You will see something like this.

https://www.youtube.com/...

 

Next insert the 2 characters 5s after the word youtube and before the period in .com

 

example

https://www.youtube5s.com/...

 

Next press enter, and you will be taken to a website where this link has been pasted in for you.

The name of the video and so on will be presented on the page to confirm it is what you wanted.

Below that is a button which states  "get link."

Press that button, and in a few seconds a new link will appear that states, download.

press enter on the download link and you will be presented with the standard download file options where you can change the filename, file type and download folder destination.

It is pretty straightforward and works well and quickly.
