Hi,

I am trying to download a page containing a video from this page for offline viewing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxxdVAJM1HY


The project was created using the default settings. And after downloading, the video is not present. And it appears the page loaded much to fast for the video to have been saved locally.


Attempts to alter the project setting did not help. Can you provide any suggestions?


Thanks

Yes, YouTube changed video format and links again. We will work on this to include the change to 6.2 version - probably next week.

Thank you!

Best regards,

Hi,

I just downloaded 6.2.3734 and tried this page again. Was the fix for this supposed to be in there?


And I should have mentioned that when I open the project, the page displays this message "You are using an outdated browser, which YouTube no longer supports. Since some features on YouTube may not work, you are viewing a lightweight version of the video page.
Go back to the regular page"

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff,

Sorry, there was a glitch. Can you please download and install this version:

http://www.metaproducts.com/download/opsetup.exe

Then redownload the Project. It should update the page and load the video.

Hi Oleg,


Thanks for the stellar support as usual. I did try the download and unfortunately it still does not work.

The behavior does seem a little different now. This time it downloads the page as it did before. But now it gets stuck on a URL of http://videoplayback/? with the message "Connecting to host videoplayback" It retries that a number of times and then gives up.

I confirmed the video file does not download by searching the directory of files. And it still gives the "You are using an outdated browser" message when viewing the local page through Offline Explorer.

Did you try this page and have it work for you? If so, I am wondering if there may be something wrong with version of IE on my system.

Now running version 6.2.3734.


Thanks,
Jeff

This depends on the User Agent setting. I am adjusting the code to get the current identification from MS IE. Meanwhile, change the Internet tab - User Agent setting to FireFox to make it working.

Thank you Oleg. That fixed both problems. It both downloads the video now, which it did not do before, and the page error about an outdated browser is gone. Thank you so much for another dose of outstanding support.

I am glad that it works again! Thank you!

Oleg.
