Re: Interesting Discovery With Pontes Media downloder


That command opens options. It is a short cut. To open the menus, from which you can open options and see other things available, use alt, as usual in menu programs. But for some reason, in version 3.x. the first time you down arrow, nothing happens except maybe something visual. If you down arrow twice, you will move through the menu you are on.

Hi Vicki,

To see what you have available in your menues open Ponce and press, Control + O, to access the menues.

Stay safe and take care. Mike.

What version do you have? I don't have any option to clear downloads.

Hi Group,

Earlier today, I tried using Pontes Media Downloader and right in the
middle of my attempts, I lost Internet connectivity. This was in the
middle of a Pontes download from Youtube. I had to reboot my modem and
router and then everything seemed to work OK except for Pontes. At this
same time, the JAVA applet decided to update. In the past, when JAVA has
updated, it has broken Pontes and I had to either uninstall and reinstall
Pontes or manually install the youtube-dl.exe file from

In any case, I went through all this business and Pontes still didn't
work. I then began playing around with the menus in Pontes, something I
almost never do. I saw an item under the downloads menu that said: 'clear
all list items.' I clicked this item and then tried using Pontes again.
What do you know? It worked! i tried several songs after this from Youtube
and they all downloaded just fine.

So maybe when your version of Pontes Media Downloader doesn't work any
more, try accessing the download menu and the 'clear all list items'
before you do anything radical.
