Known problems and solutions

Using YouTube Downloader

  • Using yt_dlp API is currently not possible stopping downloads clicking the “Stop” button. To workaround this issue, switch to Use the executable for downloads rather than Python module selecting related check box in the yt-dlp tab of preferences dialog.

  • Drag-and-drop of text and URLs not working with Firefox under Linux. Using a web browser other than Firefox or dragging and dropping text from a text editor seems to work fine. Please note that this issue affect Linux OS’s only.
