One Word "Excellent"

One request : Videos from "Youtube" and some other websites are not resuming, I wish it will be fixed in the future...

Hi Selvaraju,

unfortunately, pausing and resuming downloads would require us to ditch 10.8 support and it still doesn't have to work since many download links are time-stamped, meaning that resuming them e.g. the next day wouldn't work since the link would have been expired by then. Stay asured, however, that I'm working on this and it is a planned feature, just not likely to come in the following few months.

Thanks Charlie,
Yes, you are correct. Youtube and many services allows to resume within 12/24 hours. When I pasted 5 links means, If one got failed then I reload that failed link, then It continuously fails all other links. We will be happy if we have a button "start/stop" (not resume necessary), we will start/stop our downloader later whenever we want. Countries in Asia has very average internet bandwidth.

Hi Selvaraju,

Actually YouTube's timeout on links is closer to 15-30 minutes. I am currently thinking about some ability to resume the partially downloaded videos, but it needs some major testing since even a slightest difference in the video (the online videos often change since they get recoded, etc) results in an unplayable video.

If you'd like to discuss it further, I'm more than glad to talk to you about this, though I don't think here is the right place. Feel free to write me an email, though - from Downie, under the Support button, select "Other Support..." which will compose a new email for you in your Mail client.

Cheers,

Krystof

Of all the downloaders/ movie extractors available I tried most of them and I find this one to be the best. I use it frequently, not just for youtube but sometimes for really obscure video sources and it never fails. It just does the job, end of story. Well done!

Downie is what I call an “ALIVE” application. It keeps getting better day in day out and more and more video formats are added to its list. It might look like a one-trick pony at first try but its developer is committed to ride it skillfully and in my opinion he’s really doing a great job. ;-) Highly recommended.

Great video downloader. I emailed the developer about a site that Downie couldn't access the video and he had it added the very next day (today in v1.4.4). That's customer support above and beyond. A bargain at only $9.99!
