Very frustrating when you purchase software for what it can do, only to find out it can't do it!!! Have tried to download various videos from youtube but it won't allow it. Don't have a problem with Wondershare Video Converter!!! Hey CyberLink... Don't include it if it can't do it!!!

Please remember that this is a USERS forum and not Cyberlink Technical Support. That is who you need to contact.

Did you search this part of the forum for similar issues? I could not find anything there.

Just to let you know that I tried to download videos in the Most Watched and in my account using P2G11 and neither would download.

The only thing I seen was a post about another CyberLink product (maybe Director) and some crap about downloading from YouTube being illegal.

There is a screen capture feature in PowerDirector but that is not what you want.

Download from YouTube is not illegal unless it is restricted by the poster or because of some YouTube restrictions.

As I posted, I tried to download some of my own videos and it did not work.

Since you raised the issue, (you and I both have other ways of downloading files) I would suggest that you contact Tech Support. .

Here's what the Release Notes say:
Adds support on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update platforms.
Resolves the issue that certain YouTube videos cannot back up in 2160P (4K) quality.
Minor bug fixes.
My problem wasn't with 2160P (4K) videos or with the Windows 10 FCU (1709), I have version 1706.
I've since moved on to Ashampoo Burning Studio 19. While it doesn't download YouTube videos, it handles all the mkv videos I've thrown at it with the help of Shark007 Standard codecs. (previous forum post)
I've also gone back to Wondeshare Video Converter Ultimate which works every time.
