I ran the program on a Mac (Mountain Lion 10.8.2) and downloaded a Video from Youtube. Actually it was saved without filename, just the Suffix (.flv, .mp4). This means that Finder won't show the files, because on Macs, every file which starts with a dot is invisible. So I had to rename it via Terminal from ".flv" to "Name.flv". I've included a screenshot of the program after downloading.

    Thanks, I tried V20120926_2216 with the same problem. I have Windows 7 Pro 64. Theoretically, the os shouldn't make a difference, but I tried in XP mode anyway just to be safe. I also tried upgrading Java from build 1.6.0_33-b03 to 1.7.0_07-b11 with the same results. I keep the defaults, Std radio button and MPG/FLV selected and have tried several different flavors of YouTube content. Still get just ".mp4" or ".flv" for the filename.

    I ran the the latest version of ytd2 on windows 7, the files are saved without any name ,not even any extension as above mentioned.

    I just checked this with Ubuntu 12.04 64Bit and latest ytd2 (V20120926_2216) using:
    Oracle JRE 1.6 64Bit, JRE 1.7 64Bit, OpenJRE IcedTea 1.6 64Bit and 1.7 64Bit - different resolutions and formats -> All fine!

    M$ Windows 7 Pro 64Bit
    Oracle JRE 1.6 64Bit and JRE 1.7 64Bit -> All wrong! :(

    looks like the source code is (too) different for windows clients as the filename is taken from the html source code behind <meta name="title" content=

    I rewrite this right now!

    @Anonymous:
    "the files are saved without any name"

    this is a "feature" of M$-Windows to not to show you the real filename extension (the part after the last .)
    Just switch off that feature by unselecting "hide file name extension of known file types" (or similar text - I only have german Windows here) in the folder options!

    AFAIK it is not possible to have files saved without any name.

    sorry folks!

    FYI: not sure if I'm jumping ahead of your progress, but tried debug version V20120926_2217ds with the same results. Can't seem to copy the debug info, but both title and sfilename are empty.
    Thanks for your work!

    Admin EDIT: yes you did. this version was not for public (I just uploaded it to test it on my virtual kvm-windows ;)

    keep up using ytd2 and report everything you think I should change!

    Thanks!
    It's working great.

    As for changes, I'll just mention this here since I know someone else has already started a subject for it, but it would be nice if it could remember the download folder. It's a little cumbersome to have to select it every time.

    Also, with the file naming, it would be great to have illegal NTFS chars replaced rather than removed from the file name. For example replace / with - since slashes are common for titles like "Bloopers 1/7". This would end up being 17 when stripped.
    Also, quotes come out as "&quot" it would be better to use two apostrophe's which look just like a double quote, etc...

    I use this a lot.
    Thanks for a great app!
