is a good topic but it should be taken to the chat list. Good idea for that topic to be there. What’s the chat address. I’ll join it.

I can discuss how to record a file while it plays, which people may want to

do since they can't currently use Pontes Media Downloader.  But that

discussion should be on the chat list.  If it continues there, those

interested may want to join since I won't discuss the matter further here.

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

column.

 

5.       How can I get the complete table to copy to the clipboard to paste

into Word and save.

 

6.

 

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
