  • When I install the newest version of YTD, why do I keep getting the “Retry, Ignore, Abort" error?

    This happens if you are installing the new version of YTD in same location on your computer as the old version. Make sure the old YTD system has been fully uninstalled before you download and use this version. Once you have uninstalled the old YTD, restart your computer then try to install the new one. If you keep getting the same problem, uninstall any version of the YTD Video Downloader completely by clicking “Remove Programs or Add,” which is in the control panel on your operating system, and try to install the new YTD again.
  • How do I uninstall the YTD?

    To uninstall the YTD, you need to go to the “Remove Add or Remove Programs” tool that is in your Windows Control Panel section. There are other ways of uninstalling, such as by clicking on the “Uninstall” button in the “YTD Video Downloader” folder.
  • What do I do if I get the “file not found” error when I try to run the YTD?

    You will need to have “Visual Basic Runtime” installed to get the YTD to work. If you don't have this on your computer or laptop, you will just keep getting the same error. If you download and install Visual Basic Runtime, restart your computer after you have installed it and try the YTD Video Downloader again. If you install Visual Basic Runtime and it says, "Class not registered,” then you will also need the MSSTDFM.DLL or the MSVBVM60.DLL files to make the YTD Video Downloader tool work.
  • What do I do if the downloaded video doesn't have any sound?

    If you are having sound problems when downloading videos, you will need to use the VLC player to play your video. It is a free media player that you may download from or you can get it though the Google play store, but the one on the Google Play store only lets you turn the volume up to 125%, whereas the one from the VideoLan website allows you to turn the volume up to 200%. If you don't want to use the VLC player, then try updating your media player codecs.
  • Why does it keep asking for my password or username on Facebook?

    When you use YTD, you may be asked for your Facebook username and password. This typically happens if the website you are downloading from also asks for your Facebook username and password. You probably shouldn't give this program or the other website your Facebook username and password.
  • How do I download videos?

    To download videos, click on the URL in the web browser that hosts the video you desire, copy the URL address, and paste it on to the YTD Video Downloader tool and click the “Download” button.
  • Can I download using a proxy server?

    You may download using a proxy server. When using YTD, it will require you to use the default proxy server, which may mean setting your Internet Explorer or Edge proxy settings prior to using YTD.
  • Why does it keep asking for a password when I download with a proxy server?

    When using HTTP proxy, YTD will not allow passwords to be used. If it keeps asking for a password, the only way to fix this is to remove the password from your proxy server settings.
  • How do I remove the video but keep the audio?

    To do this, go on to the “Convert” tab, click on the “MPEG Audio Layer 3 (MP3),” which you can find in the drop-down menu. Select the “Choose Quality” and pick the quality from the output file.
