  2. When I download with this app, if I select mp3 quality, the resulting file is an audio file – no video. This has happened with several videos. Is this a common occurrence? Is there a setting somewhere that I’ve accidentally changed?

    • This is late I know but your problem is that an mp3 file is an audio file. The mp3 format doesn’t have a video layer.

  3. I know this is silly but I do not know how to download on this app (I have it) I am clicking download but it does not do anything?

      You have to paste a link in to the text box and then click on the download button. Afterwards, click on one of the video qualities available. It should then download the video.

      Kind regards

      • I did that exactly… still nothing happened

      • I´ve been using this App and it´s great. Right know I cannot download any video, after selecting the video quality, the App do nothing at all.

        Any suggestion?

    • There are scam busting sites with onlnie lists of the names scammers use, their email addresses, stock copy/paste emails, paid-for-in-cash cell phone numbers, stolen pictures and fake websites they use. You could start your search at one of those sites.If you have responded to a scammer, you are on his potential sucker’ list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don’t bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn’t worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even partial sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted onlnie. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.6 Rules to follow to avoid most fake jobs:1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one.2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order.3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity.4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone.5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram.6) Job asks you to sign up for a credit reporting or identity verification site.

  15. Hey I’ve downloaded the app but when I copy and paste nothing seems to happen ??
    Please help

  16. how am I going to use this fast you tube downloader? I tried copy and paste the share link but it didn’t work. Will someone tell how to use this please!

  17. I have tried many youtube downloaders, but fast youtube downloader tops all. It is really fast and the quality of files download is wow. I think it is the best I have so far come across in many years, but, I wish it could work for my Windows 8 predecessors as well, especially my Windows 7. I give thumps up.

  18. You should at least state clearly in the app description the download resolution options. Does HQ mean the maximum resolution available – 720p, 1080i, or above – or what?
