How do I stop this programme always running in the background? I have unticked the "start application at startup" box.

pigolato,
>"How do I stop this programme always running in the background? I have unticked the "start application at startup" box."

Agreed; this is another irritant. The program shrinks down to the System Tray, so if I am not going to use it for awhile, I right-click the System Tray Icon, then choose Exit.

In terms of it's speed of download it does a generally good job.

There is no real integration to browsers like the king of downloaders does.

There is also no option to set a variety of preferred download bitrates.

Carrying out a simple comparison with ANT Download Manager, a typical 720p download was 3 times larger using Fast than it is using ANT. This is reflected in ANT using a much lower bitrate by default, which explains the difference.

But a smaller file will be a faster download and at least from my experience I am happy with the quality of the lower bitrate, so having some options to choose from would be useful.

But if there is one out and out killer for this application, it is the price. For what is really a one trick pony it is easily more than 3 times the price that it's real value would show.

Donald stated: "The videos have to play through their proprietary player, which you also have to download, and it was after installing that when I started seeing the pop-ups."

You do not have to use their propriety player. Look for where the files are downloaded to (near the bottom right of the main screen). You can open the files with your choice of player, such as VLC, or any other as long as the file type you download is supported or converted to a format the player can display (such as mp4).

You don't have to install the suggested player to start getting ads; they show up anyway. I've never downloaded their player and I can certify that the ads come regardless.

What I do not like about this offer is that the installer has to resort to trickery to get you to install other programs of theirs. For example, the second screen has a square already checked to Install Fast Screen Recorder. It isn't clear why there is a suggestion to install a screen recorder when Fast Video Downloader claims to have the ability to record the screen. I say, "claim" because when I tried it, it appeared to work but when I ended the recording step, a dialog shows up asking "Please Wait" and "Recorded Video is Saving" but the progress bar gets close to the 95-100% but never finishes. After 20 minutes, when I attempted to close the dialog, another dialog was displayed informing me "This recording will not be saved, are you sure you want to close." I clicked Yes to allow the saving dialog to close, but it still didn't close. Using the taskbar, I was able to close the recording dialog. There was no file saved in the location set in the settings, so no telling where it was trying to save a video. I conclude this video downloader has issues with part of its claimed abilities.

Another irritant is that this company feels it is imperative to tack the date-time onto the downloaded file.

Have a previous version from a previous giveaway. It doesn't seem to have the conversion abilities of this version but it was fast. It also doesn't seem to have some of the limitations others have complained about on this version. Anyway, the registration code for this version allowed me to renew my license on the previous version for another year.

Thanks GOATD and the creators of Fast Video Downloader.

PS. Creators of Fast Video Downloader. I liked your product and would probably have purchased a renewal license if I had enough spare time to download and watch more than a few videos in a year. Unfortunately, I am not so blessed.

It's a very limited version according to the pop-up after installation. It wants you to upgrade to the full version to eliminate this limitation, and that's $30. It appears to work, but it definitely does not live up to the FAST in the name.

The pop-up says that you can only record 2 minutes, but that appears to be in the screen recorder part of the program. I'll be uninstalling it shortly. These giveaways should tell us ahead of time about these things, so we don't have to even bother with trying them.

The videos have to play through their proprietary player, which you also have to download, and it was after installing that when I started seeing the pop-ups.

The pop-ups advertising their software full versions are very annoying. They pop up from your notifications in the lower right corner of your screen. They are SO annoying that I am uninstalling the program.

Also, the uninstaller leaves pieces of the program behind. I used Revo Uninstaller Pro to delete those.

Constantly on the search for YouTube down-loaders but unfortunately, this one appears incapable of that. Others available here have worked short-term and were lifetime but became unusable after site security changes which then required buying an upgrade.

Warning! The author states that if you purchased this application and use the registration code from GOTD, that the remaining days on your paid license will be *added* to the GOTD license. This is incorrect information and I have personally tested this with a paid license code. The registration process with OVERWRITE your existing license with a new license and not add days to it.

The GOTD license is 366 days and the app does not exceed this no matter what license code you enter. To be clear, you cannot combine the license code although the author states you can.

Be sure you understand this if you plan on purchasing a license from the author to extend the GOTD license.

Can not do anything it says
• "Download Unlimited Videos and playlists from 1000+ video sites." ... Any sites I clicked on took me to a page offering another download program
• "Download Live Stream videos." ....... I couldn't do this
• "Screen Recorder with microphone and system audio setting."............ Looking for more money for this option
It will download a YouTube video . Big deal!! Lots of free down-loaders do that.

Not recommended!.

Well few things.... There site shows that you can download video streams from all the latest video streaming places.... like Break.com..... and collagehumor.... etc... well they are not even in existence any more... in fact i think Break went out in like 2016? Now I'm always looking for the diamond in the rough.... so i want to see what else this thing has to offer.... but i guess nothing.... they will not send me a link to register so.... see yeah... good luck back in 2016.

Reply   |   Comment by Freeborn  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+23)

Freeborn, So far my diamond in the rough has been Ant Download Manager. That program has been offered here several times and it is amazing, no one year license giveaway version (just one version with no upgrades), and there is a lifetime license offered from them for about the same price as 1 year from this program. If you need to download video or audio it will do it from basically all of the same websites.

I use it pretty much every day and I love it, and I'm sure one day I will buy a lifetime license just to have constant updates and bug fixes.

My only gripe or bug with that software is that if I leave Firefox open for too long it will start eating CPU cycles and use most of my cpu power. Not sure what causes it because I've tried changing the settings they suggested to but it still does it.

I am having an issue recently with GAOTD downloads (including this one). When I run the exe file it says "a required privilege is not held by the client." I have tried installing as an administrator and switching off anti-virus but to no avail. I am running Windows 10 64bit. The Windows compatability troubleshooter says the program is not compatible with Windows 10 but surely that cannot be right?
It seems to mainly be programs from here.
Can the owners of Fast Video Downloader or anyone else offer suggestions as all the ones I have seen on searching Google involve registry changes and I'm not up for that.

Reply   |   Comment by IDH  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

IDH, a quick Google on "a required privilege is not held by the client" [w/out quotes] suggests your Windows install is the problem, though if the problem only occurs with GOTD downloads it might be security software if you've got it installed. If the problem is security software [anti-virus etc.], you *might* be able to turn it off, or you can run the GOTD setup.exe with Windows in Safe Mode. That setup.exe file is protected, so you can't install a GOTD once the offer expires, which is why security software might object, & likely why the compatibility troubleshooter said it was incompatible. If that's not the case, e.g., you're just using Defender, then it *could be* security related policy settings, which you can't set as easily if you're using Windows 10 Home [rather than Pro, Edu, or Ent.]. I *think* that's why some of your search results advised editing the registry. More than one of the hits I got on Google suggested just reinstalling Windows.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

IDH,
I had the same problem with the exact same error message and found that it was caused by SecureAPlus - a program that i downloaded from GAOTD. See it here: https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/secureaplus-essentials-2/
What i have to do on quite a few files I'm installing now to get past the "a required privilege is not held by the client" is RIGHT click on the file I'm trying to install and look for the "trust level" setting. Touch the trust level setting with your mouse pointer and you will see three options - the one you will want to LEFT click on is the "trusted installer" option.
From there just go back and re-try installing whatever you are trying to install. This has solved the "a required privilege is not held by the client" problem for me completely but, you will have to re-do this on every file that you get the "a required privilege is not held by the client" as the trusted installer option unchecks every time.

Reply   |   Comment by Jeff  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

mike, No, it is NOT your Windows install. Well kinda, but there is a work around. I had this problem and contacted Microsoft and they checked with their supervisor and said I would have to reload Windows. That meant a complete backup of almost 2 terabytes of data. I finally discovered the fix myself. If you right click on the download file you will bring up a dropdown box. You will see among the listings one for "not a trusted file", or something to that effect. Click on that and change it to "trusted" and you're good to go. I then went to the folder and right clicked and selected the "trusted" option. This changed any untrusted files in the folder to trusted. Microsoft did another Windows update and fixed the problem. I know because the "untrusted file" option is no longer listed in the drop down box when I right click it. You might want to see if there is a new update to your Windows 10 and download it. That might fix the problem as well. Good luck!

Mike, I thank you for taking your time to try to help me. It is much appreciated. I know you would agree that re-installing Windows to get a free video downloader doesn't make sense. The fact that Windows may have been installed incorrectly doesn't rub either as this has only just started happening in the last month or two.
I don't just rely on Defender but I have switched off my anti-virus and tried that and it also failed. The only thing I haven't done is try it in safe mode and that might be a possibility.
As far as this software is concerned and bearing in mind the time restraint now, I'm going to let this one pass but will certalnly try a safe mode installation next time it happens.
After leaving this message, I had to install another piece of software and it has had no problem at all so I also need to check and ensure it IS only GOTD software that the issue is with.
Again, thanks I am always humbled by people who take time to help others on here and I am grateful.

The downloadable version is very limited (e.g., no format conversions, screen recording up to 2 minutes, ...) with respect to the description above, which applies to the full version (to be paid).
Even for the free version, it would be respectful to provide a convenient description.
