To Fast PC Tools,
I have commented that I would like to see a Video Downloader that worked like a VCR or DVR for live stream.
I asked for a timer but later found out that does not work(I found another downloader with a timer) for live stream. You must be present to push play for the video to start and be detected by the Stream Downloader which defeats the purpose of the timer. (I knew of no live stream today to test your program on) Have you addressed this Issue for "Fast Video Downloader" or is it a simple timer as well?

Fast PC Tools,

I think MOV means he would like a "scheduler" feature to start recording a live stream, while unattended, at a chosen time of day or date.

Just tried this and it worked perfectly. Needed a downloader for youtube because my other ones don't work with youtube anymore. This had no trouble. Had to turn off "Start with Windows", which it looks like it also turns off automatic updates. Will have to update manually I guess, which these downloaders need to due all the time.
Haven't tried converting and probably never will, have other software for that. A definite keeper.

This offering does a reasonable job, although it does not have the versatility of my favourite, And Download Manager.

But there is one very suspicious element that I find disturbing that that despite turning off the default start with windows options, when there is an update, it gets downloaded and installed automatically and your browser automatically opened and diverted to the product page.

This makes me wonder what else is being done in the background without my consent and knowledge.

It's just not the kind of activity that any legitimate vendor would engage in.

I was able to get my GoTD copy installed on my PC. Usually I use Video DownloadHelper but there's always some websites that free software won't let me download videos on, so having an alternative for when I need it is nice.

Gives basically a full year license for free.

The rapid price increases must be reflecting the success and popularity of this title,:

As offered here on GOTD, Fast Video Downloader was $29.90 on March 30, 2018, $39.90 on February 28, 2019, and $59.90 today.

Better grab it today -- if this continues it will soon out-price its target market audience.

They need to get listed on this website:

I've used this program before and have been very happy with the results (download videos for use when internet access is not available such as a long flight or waiting at the doctors). Occasionally it will no longer download from some sites due to changes in the video source web site but the developer is quick to provide updates and problems usually resolved. I also admire the responses from the developer addressing concerns/issues in today's GAOTD comments. I will consider purchasing this software depending on validity of license provided for $60. Thank you, FastPCTools

WTF? I loaded the file and tried to register it to get the code. It brought up a bill for 29.99 but showed a 30.00 credit so I figured it would cancel itself out when I processed it. Used my Paypal and went through the billing process to see through to the confirm payment screen but it went ahead and processed the $29.99 charge. Now I have to fight to get my money back.

Question to Fast PC Tools about today's GAOTD Fast Video Downloader.

I had purchased this program and still have 252 days remaining on the yearly license. So when
GAOTD offered it again, I downloaded and installed it to 're-up' my license back to 366 days.
When installed it did upgrade program to version 3.1.0.45 from 3.1.0.44 but it also kept my original information from purchased version (Name, email & 252 days left).

Since today's GAOTD FVD is free with 1 yr. license. How does FVD allow users who purchased a license to reinstate / extend their license without uninstalling FVD or registering with a different email address?

Reply   |   Comment by Not Convinced  –  14 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Not Convinced, you have to uninstall and reinstall -they aren't giving this product away to extend your coverage-they want people to try it for a year and hopefully buy it. I have found the product fantastic and still have 252 days left as well. I don't expect them to give me another year for free but I will take it.

Bai Ganio,

AFAIK the main way to save video from streaming sites like Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, Fandango etc. is to record it, either using screen capture, or using some HDMI splitters that remove HDCP with a game capture device. You can also record 720p with a PlayOn subscription.

I really liked this program when last given away. There are one or two minor things that I'd change, but nothing major. I don't like to have programs that I'm not currently using at that moment running in the background. But it's easy enough to exit once I'm on my desktop. I do get a pop up a few times a day asking me if i want to d/l some " selected " music from youtube. I simply hit the " X " and exit out of that. For me, the pros far outweigh the Cons. I can't name on site that I tried to download from where Fast Video Downloader failed. This program will respond differently on different operating systems. Currently I'm using Windows 7 Home Pro and Fast Video Downloader works great ! Recommended.Than you, GOTD.

Note: software adds startup items to your registry! If you have monitoring software you can quarantine or delete entries. Otherwise, the program will run in the background when you start your PC.

Installed without issue on Win 10 pro 64x box, received activation code quickly by email. Tried downloading a youtube video and was successful.

Forgot to add you can go to Options, Settings and uncheck "Start application at startup" and set download location, etc.

Reply   |   Comment by shegeek72  –  14 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+20)

shegeek72,

Since the last time this was offered, I've repeatedly gone to Options, Settings and unchecked "Start application at startup" to no effect.

If this is manually "exited", then if about a week has elapsed (haven't made an accurate study of it) and a shutdown/restart occurs, this will resume both launching itself and the web browser to their product page.

Apparently there is a background service which reverses any user choice to not launch at startup (at least in that last version 3.1.0.45), very annoying.

Reply   |   Comment by HMarx  –  14 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

HMarx,

Apparently the last time it was offered and I installed it (Feb. 28, 2019) the version was 3.1.0.22.

When I checked the version number today prior to my previous comment it reported 3.1.0.45, the same as today's offer, so at some point it was updated (but I don't recall doing so since I usually make a point to disable any automatic updating options, if available).

However, I also noted that I had previously commented about this same "auto-launching/option-ignoring" issue on the 3.1.0.22 February page.

Has anybody else with a prior installation noticed this behavior?

Reply   |   Comment by HMarx  –  14 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

HMarx,

Yes, definitely. While I've found this to be a pretty capable video downloader app, my major beef with it is its constant ignoring of the (deliberately Unchecked) 'Launch on Startup' option. That, along with the 'Do Not Automatically Search for Updates' option. That one was operable for a few versions, but then reverted to being greyed out and unavailable. Annoying ! I don't like everything grinding to a halt at bootup, while the program goes through its update routine. (Fast PC Tools, are you listening ?) Let the users have control.

On the one hand, no single app of this type is going to be sufficient. I like to keep several of them on hand, for all contingencies. There are always some sites that some of the programs work with, and others with which they do not. But I have to note that the bar has really been raised for this. In a majority of cases, TubeDigger towers above the others. It has a very reasonable single-purchase price -- none of this annual license stuff, which I never liked; you can install it on multiple computers; it is also regularly updated, but **much less obtrusively**, and so far there has been no sign of further charges for the updates.

Reply   |   Comment by Gene  –  14 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

HMarx, I get a notification every time there is an update and hit yes and I have auto on so it must happening fast and you didn't realize you clicked on it. Im glad it updates-most GOTD don't include updates.

Reply   |   Comment by Brian  –  14 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

HMarx, Did you quarantine the startup registry entries when the software was installing? They are likely responsible for the autostart. If you don't have any programs that monitor new software installations I recommend anvir task manager (free). It will notify you when software is trying to install auto-start entries and allow you to quarantine or delete those entries. You may have to uninstall fast video downloader, install anvir task manager, then reinstall the downloader.

A previous experience with a version downloaded from GAOTD in February 2019 was troublesome. It failed many times to download Internet content and after several weeks failed to download anything. I completely uninstalled the previous version and will give this one a try, hoping for a better result.

@ Fast PC Tools: how can you claim it is compatible with XP or even Vista when the copy of FFMPEG.EXE you download once the program is run... will not run on any version of windows prior to Windows 7? Your program as you supply it is really a downloader that proceeds to download various other files on first run as well as dropping an unsolicited autorun entry for itself into windows. I presume you have read the license that FFMPEG projects code s released under (GPLv3) and weighed up what your obligations were if you wanted to incorporate any GPLv3 code into your own programs functionality?

Nice program even if I am having issues trying to keep it from auto running at windows startup. Got this last time it was offered here. Had something like 150 days remaining give or take and just entered the new license code into it and it reset mine back to 366 days. No need to reinstall if you have it already.

Hmmm... I don't have that problem with my 'purchased' copy. As long as after making any changes, I click the "Save" button.
Following up on previous comment about resetting license code info... Didn't work for me without registering to a different email address. It had kept the original information and days remaining until email was changed.
