Re: Which video software for nvda

Hi all.

Pontes Media is safe. A program don’t safe is, for example, Multi Extra, but the developer also created in 2016 an addon malicious for NVDA and this person is popular for this reason.

When I need download a video in audio format I use TCA Media Downloader. Is a program created by Peter Reina, in Python, but is only in Spanish, my native language. Is easy to use.

The program that blocked it was Malwarebytes

It doesn’t even give an option to go through to the website for that website

Sometimes Malwarebytes let you go through

It uses versions of ffmpeg and youtube dl both of which are opensource components.


The program runs on oracle java as its engine.


Its got an innosetup installer and thats about it.


Then again I am not surprised.


Microsoft flags just about anything everything from ccleaner to cdex could be a problem for some obscure reason.


Heck even nvda became malware at one time.


Lets face it, security companies don't like the blind especially antivirus makers.
