Hi, I have pontes 2 something How do I upgrade to 3? When I use it, it
doesn’t convert the files. It says completely done when I go to the
folder where the files go it’s not there. Why doesn’t it convert
anymore? I told friends that youtube  might be cracking down on people
who use any converter to convert files and they believed it.  I’ve
been using pontes for 2 or 3 years. It’s worked no problem. Now it
doesn’t convert the files. If I need to upgrade do I have to go to the
site to get it?

There is an option to delete all thiles control shift and backspace.

its in the menus to.

You should select the source you want before you convert to whatever
you want, I usually select the lowest source audio as it will play
fine no matter what it is.

It can crash with some settings but its ok.

Greetings all,

I am not sure who recommended Pontes Media downloader.  But hit is
been awesome.  however, I have been having a little issue lately.
I am using version 3.0.

1.        How do I get Pontes to empty the table of past url’s?

2.       2.  Sometimes when pasting the url from youtube into the
url field for downloading, then tabbing to the download button and
pressing enter on it, the file doesn’t always download.

3.       I go back to check the url field and find it is empty.
But one more shift tab back there is a list of past download url’s.

4.       I tried copying and pasting the shortcut listing with no
luck. NVDA will read me the first column but not what that
keystroke does in the second column.

5.       How can I get the complete table to copy to the clipboard
to paste into Word and save.


7.       I have had great success with Pontes.  But lately, It
takes a few times getting the file.  I am went through the program
options and think all is set right.  I genuine thank anyone for
some directions.  I send a song out with each of my daily
devotions and rely heavily on the awesome program… Blessings in any
