I'm new here, so I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this thread. So if the Mods feel the need to move it, then please do.
I used to use Vdownloader version 0.77, it had been prompting me to download the new version for a while, so eventually i did. however when i tried to download a video using the programme as i had been doing previously, i wasnt able to and a pop up appeared saying Socket Error #11004
I've uninstalled the programme, and then reinstalled it and had the same problem, i re-downloaded the zip file and unzipeded it installing it over again, only to have the same problem, i assumed it was a bug therefore in the new version, so i unzipped the 0.77 version i have and installed it, however now it also has the pop up message Socket Error #11004 when i try to download videos.
I know of mediaconverter and other web based video downloaders, but Vdownloader was really simple to use and it was easy to convert the file to AVI or whatever i needed rather then downloading FLV etc and having to convert via another programme. I need Vdownloader to work again for me, as I use it to download clips etc that the groups i work with request so as to create video montages. Most of the work is based through community groups and is based on reconcilliation, and my work is now harder as a result of the issues with Vdownloader.
Any help would be much appreciated.
