URL to the video.

Which one did you choose?

> The downloaded video is bad

What was the size of the "video" you ended up with?

> does not play

With what player are you trying to play it?

I have used earlier version of flashgot, but no issue with this setup. Recently I reset my firefox and DL new version. Thank you for your help

Hmm...

The last version I have "says", kmp_294.1438 (KMPlayer).exe, yet when I run it, it says, 3.0.0.1438.

In any case, that clip does not work in my KMPlayer either.

The clip, 24,844,945 bytes, even though it is an mp4, is also "dash", & I (know) that my KMPlayer (circa 2010) knows nothing of dash, & I suspect that neither does yours.

So use a different (current) player that does.

BTW, that 24 MB clip is the video only, no audio.
The audio is that separate 3 MB piece.

Or you could get an already combined clip, like the 17 MB mp4.
(And that one isn't going to be dash, I don't believe, [I did not check], & so might play in your player.)

Yes, the 17 MB video works. But the problem it was in 360P instead of 480p I wanted. I remember the old version all I need to do is download the largest file, and it works.

Well the issue isn't FlashGot, but the player you're using can't handle the file you've downloaded.


PS: Many times "HD" or "720" or "480" are only (slightly) more then wishful thinking - compared to some "lessor" quality clip.
