Easy Video Copy 5 - Cant Install Flash For Youtube Downloads

Question

I am trying to download video from Youtube. I start Easy CD Copy 5, select Copy and Convert Video, and get a 'Web Video' dialog telling me to install Flash to use this feature. When I try to install flash via Internet Explorer I am told flash is already installed and working.

 

I am using 64 bit Windows 8.1/IE 11.0.9600.17416 which, unlike previous versions of IE, has Flash built in.

 

How can I get it working?

That function doesn't work for many people and it probably will not be fixed. There are alternate ways of downloading content from YouTube; Google for them. My favorite is to use the video downloader in the Free "ANY VIDEO CONVERTER".

 

Note that not all YouTube content is downloadable due to restrictions placed on the files by YouTube.

I would strongly recommend against using the free Any Video converter. It will infect your machine with 'potentially unwanted programs' like Delta Search, Search protect and Conduit. Its very disappointing that a reputable company like Roxio/Corel should recommend this and also that they don't plan to fix their software. I shall be requesting a refund. I had hoped that Easy CD copy would provide a clean replacement to AVC.

Sensory Rob,

 

Those 'potentially unwanted programs' are only installed if you want them, or don't bother watching the installer to see that you aren't required to install them. You just do a custom install without them. I am sure that Sknis would not recommend the program if it was compulsory to also install other unwanted software.

However, if after reading this you feel that Easy CD Copy is not for you, please go ahead and promptly request your refund.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Thank you Brendon. That is a good educational post for anyone!.

 

If anyone gets one of those browser search engines, the free Malwarebytes will help you get rid of them. Of course you would have to download it. :o:P There is a pay for version if you really feel you need it. Do it directly from their home page and don't use something like c/net who adds their own helper program.

 

You would go to your browser's control panel and remove it from your search engines and change the "Home page'. Remove it using Add/Remove programs (or better yet REVO Uninstaller (free)) and then run Malwarebytes scan to determine where the left overs are (registry). You can remove them there. I just did it with my daughter-in-law's older computer.
