For making the downloader work on youtube, you have to go to http://www.youtube.com/html5, and click the button Join the HTML5 Trial , then when a video begins playing, you'll see the download file in Avant Downloader, ignoring the other files of 1.7M.

EDIT: Never mind. I didn't have Avant Ultimate Version. I just downloaded it and now it works fine. Thanks.

I don't get it. I can't join the Youtube/HTML5 trial with Avant...it gives me an error. It says, "Your browser does not support HTML5 video with our site." When I use IE9, I can join the trial with no problem but no downloader appears onthe screen because I'm no longer using Avant.

Are you sure you used is IE9 standard engine not the IE compatible?
"Your browser does not support HTML5 video with our site." I just saw this message under IE compatible engine, no problem in other engines.

Thank you, Avant tech team!!!! The new version 171 now works to download videos from Youtube, using IE rendering engine. I have not tried Chrome or Firefox yet, but I normally use the IE engine, so I am very happy.

EDIT: OOPS, NOT WORKING! It will download, saying the download is 1.70 MB and I know for a fact that the video is 80 MB.
Not happy anymore :(

Apparently, the 1.7 MB is the link that is being downloaded, and not the video file which is 80 MB.

I have just tested again, seems sometimes it can detect the big file and other times it can't. for the short videos, they can download without any problem.

Avant Browser can only download the video played by html5 player.
Right click on the video, if it shows up a flash player context menu(there will be an item About Adobe Flash Player *****), Avant can't get the full size, if it shows up a html5 context menu(here will be an item About Html5), Avant can get the full size.

Can you play the flv files? In 2012 build 169, all flv files downloaded are 1.7M and they can't be played with a local player.

The reason why here the adownloader box shows up always automatically and with the right videos size , its because i use the plugin Magic actions for youtube , this plugin choose(clicks in) the quality that we want automatically.
http://www.chromeactions.com/

Without this plugin , theres a error yes , we need click in the quality button number (360p,480p...) to see the adownloader box , except with html5+chrome rendering.


This test was done with plugins OFF :

chrome rendering:
flash , ok but we need click in the quality button number to see the adownloader box , the flv file plays well with VLC media player.
html5 , ok , the adownloader box show up automatically , flv file plays well with VLC media player.

firefox rendering:
flash , ok but we need click in the quality button number to see the adownloader box , flv file plays well with VLC media player
html5 , no , dont work.
