    Thanks for the new release, but on Linux (latest Mint) the “ok” and “cancel” buttons on the file requester for download video has disappeared…

        Hi JeGX,
        The old version appears to have lost them too (or there was some other way to get it working that I’ve forgotten) – there doesn’t appear to be any way to select “ok”, just cancel from clicking the close gadget… I have had it working with the old version I just tested a few months ago.

    Hi again, I remember now – it’s not a file dialog it’s the folder opening after it downloads – it’s that it’s not downloading the video, just silently failing and then opening the folder…

      Indeed, the download folder is automatically opened after the download even if it fails. I have to see if youtube-dl has some return codes to better handle video downloads.
