Re: Does Pontes Media downloader still work


In case what I wrote is unclear, the link that Pontes uses gets there because the user copies the link to the clipboard from the browser.  Pontes automatically places the link from the address bar into its edit field.

That's good.  I've never seen the download button not be available even when there was no link in the edit field of the program but I haven't had defective links in the program.

There may be implications for other situations.  Usually, the link that appears in Pontes comes from the clipboard because the user copied it there from the browser's address bar.  If that is what you did and the link was defective, that means that it may be that the very common practice of people sending people links to articles by copying links from the address bar and pasting them into a message may not work with Edge.  If they don't, that is important to know and is a serious flaw.

Hello Gene.  I have version 3.1.2-200501. I did reinstall PMD, but my problem persisted.  However, I discovered that all of my troubles were related to obtaining my download links in Microsoft Edge.  I switched over to Firefox and tried again, and presto, everything worked like a charm. That's a good thing, because I find Firefox more preferable.

It shouldn't matter, but which version are you running?

Its still working, I used it within the last day or two.  I have never seen the download button not be available, whether it worked or not.  If it didn't work, because an update was needed to get around a change on the Youtube site, the button still was there, downloads just weren't successful.
That implies a reinstallation may be in order.  the program itself may be corrupted.

Good evening everyone.  I haven’t used Pontes in a couple months or so, but
I tried tonight to pull down a Youtube tutorial about the Book Port Plus
with Pontes, and it will not show me the download button.  Does it still
work, or has Youtube done something to render it useless? Thanks in
