youtube downloader works very well with youtube videos, but what freewares are there that allows you to download videos from other sites?

This software works well

It plays all major players within it now, Windows, Quick time, DivX, etc.. Has download capabilities. The newest version 11 was just released last week. It's the only media player I use on the net. This keeps it simple.

I use this Videoraptor, too, but I bought it Sad (about 9 months ago) and I really like it as a tool cause it is very easy to use and useful for me, now I have 'tones' of videos from YouTube on my PC, on CDs and even on my cell.

You have to check if the Audio only button is active or not. If it is active, it downloads only audio files. Or, another option is to see if you selected to be download as a video and not an audio file. You should be more attentive.

Thanx for your advice, you're right, the Audio only was on so it downloaded only audio files. Yes, indeed, I have to be more attentive.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
