Re: Which video software for nvda


What program is giving you the warning? and when do you get it? The program is very popular among blind people and a large number are using it. I've seen no reports of it containing a trojan or of the web site containing a trojan. A false posibive is by far the most likely conclusion unless you are saying the page itself, when it comes up brings up this warning. In that case, if it is the page and not at the time you follow the download link, then its possible the page has some sort of hacked advertising.

Hi Heddy,

Pontes Media Downloader does give you the option to download the full unconverted video from Youtube. It also allows conversion to MP3 and other audio formats. I am totally blind myself and therefore I cannot make accurate analysis of just what quality of videos are downloaded. By default, it downloads the video in MP4 format. I think this may be a compressed form of the video, so if compressed video format is not good enough, maybe this won't work for you.

In any case, the download page for this app is:

I spent a lot of time searching Google for an accessible video downloader that works with nvda.

I came accros Ummy Video Downloader and it looks like a possibility but unfortunately it allows only 1 free download before you need to pay. The subscription price falls out of my monthly or once-off budget. The video I downloaded from Youtube was of a very high quality.

Any suggestions for a free app?

I don't use the updater so others can discuss it. Regarding add-ons, I don't know where you are looking. If you go to:
that is the official NVDA add-ons page. That doesn't mean that no other add-ons are available elsewhere, it means that these have been checked by NVDA volunteers for safety and that they work properly.

You are on the stable add-ons page. You will see a link as you look down the page for add-ons under development. You may use them if you wish but they may have bugs, being sort of like betas.

Legacy add-ons, as I understand it, and there is a link to them as well, are those that can be used with older versions of NVDA. I'm not sure, but I don't think they will work with current versions.

If you go to the page I gave a link to earlier and move down the page using h for heading, you will move from add-on link to add-on link.
