When we talk about media grabbing are we mainly talking about YouTube here or do you use IDM to download from other sites in FLV format?

I've tried IDM on a few sites and it doesn't seem to work on most, only on youtube?

I'd like to be able to grab ANY media downloadable from ANY websites, and not only the most well-known such as YouTube ;)
Yeah I get that and that of course would be the aim but its not as simple as it sounds o_O

I'll need to look into it in more detail but I suspect that because most of these websites don't want people to download their videos they use sneaky ways to stopping it, so each case needs dealing with differently.

I think to start with DN will have to start with sites like YouTube and go from there

There seems to be something funny going on with the .net download in the installer. I've not had chance to look into why yet so in the mean time I've uploaded a version of the installer that does not try to download .NET.

I can't test this 100% because I already have .NET installed :mad: but it should work for you until I sort out the problem with the installer.

@MikeD I downloaded Download Ninja from that url that you pasted and now it's working. Thanks for this :). Anyway memory usage should be little bit lower.

ok let me try...
@MikeD I downloaded Download Ninja from that url that you pasted and now it's working.
I've been doing some testing on this today, is it possible you don't have the full .NET 4.0 installed but actually the .NET 4.0 Client Profile?

The Client Profile version is a subset of the main .net 4.0 that contains most of the stuff needed for running .NET apps but not all of it so the install is smaller. The only way I can reproduce what you guys are seeing is if I have the Client Profile installed but not the full .NET 4.0 version.

Anyway, the app doesn't really need the full version so I've changed the installer to look for either the full or client profile version, if either exist it won't attempt to download anything.

Can you both give this a try and see if it still tries to download .net?

That's right, I agree with you, not every websites allow users to download video from it, I believe it's not as simple as that..I think it's sounds good to start from YT or the another famous one like daily motion etc, that would be more than enough. And thanks a lot Mike for DN, I like it a lot :D

Great, I think that was the problem.. I see you have .net 4 client profile installed.. not .net 4 full so DN was looking for full, seeing you didn't have it and trying to install it.
