  • Video Downloader Plug-in DVDFAB Crashes when downloading plug-in

    I've used the Video Download Plug-In in Creator since it came out without a problem. Somewhere around DVDFAB it started saying I had to download the Plug-In every time I moved up to a new version. Starting with I would get the message I must download the Plug-In to use this feature. When I click on Yes, DVDFAB crashes back to Windows without downloading or running. The crash is instantaneous. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling DVDFAB, but I still get a crash. What do I need to adjust?

    I'm having the same problem with It started by asking me to update the converter. It didn't so much as crash as the UI went away leaving a dvdfab9 process running (but not taking any cpu time). I reinstalled dvdfab9 and this time it asked to install the download addin rather than update it. Same results. I have to use the task manager to kill the process before dvdfab9 can be restarted.

      1. Download the plug-in from the following URL: http://download.dvdfab.cn/VideoDownloader.plg

      3. Go back to DVDFab, click on the Download button under Converter or Creator module to bring up Video Downloader window and see the result.

        when I attempt to unzip the plug in to manually install it, I am prompted for a password to open the encrypted file. My member central password does not work.
