Re: NVDA and Pontes Media Downloader


I saw a message from someone saying that the program works for them. Perhaps the block isn't effective in some locations for some reason. But I suspect that it is in effect for a lot of people in different areas. I'm not a moderator but it would be useful if we had some idea of whether a lot of people are having problems. But that should be done on the chat list, not this one.

You don't have to upgrade. It will do no good. Youtube has blocked
downloaders. Off and on, it makes changes and designers of downloaders have
to work around the problem. It’s a cat and mouse game. Wait until you see
information that a new download engine is available then download it. You
will see an item in the Pontes menu for upgrade download engine or similar
wording. Or you can try upgrading every day or two. If you can download,
there is a new upgrade.

I much prefer the old version of Pontes and I'm waiting for a new engine. I
tried the newer version just in case and it won't download anything either.

In the version you are running, open the menus with alt. Right arrow to
options. Down arrow to update download engine and press enter.

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

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 of
