I have gotten various complaints from various users that they are having some issues with TED Downloader. These concerns are mainly regarding the downloader being unable to download videos properly in areas with low network connectivity. Also,they are not able to download subtitles. Now, I have got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I have decided to patch some of the issues and do a mid-release prior to the next V 4.0 that i have promised and in this release I address the problem of the video downloads failing but the bad news is that i had to drop the Subtitle module.
Scenario : You click on a file and try to drag it to drop it into an application but you are unable to do so. Try as much as you may, you are not able to drag it. What do you do ??
Solution : You tried to drag a file into an application but it just does not allow you to do so. You try to drag a window, it does not allow you to do so too. You can click and select the file, you can also resize the window but you cannot drag anything. What do you do ??
Scenario : You have enabled the Default Administrator account on your Windows PC and want it to be a fail – safe when something goes wrong but it keeps showing up on your Logon Screen. You want it to be active but it should not appear on the Welcome Screen.
Solution : The user accounts that are created in Windows will by default show up in the logon screen. This behavior provides a convenience for the users to login by clicking on their user account and typing their password to login to Windows. However, there are times when you want to hide the user accounts from showing up in the login screen as an additional security especially when you are sharing a computer.
Also, The default admin account on the Windows PC is disabled by default and hence does not show up on the Logon Screen but once you enable it, it does appear there.Fortunately, there is a way to hide it but it involves messing with the Registry. Or what you could do is use the Utility i created and cut out the the manual work….thats what technology is for, right ??
Anyways, i will list what you need to do with both.
Scenario : You downloaded a chm file from the internets and when you try to open it, you see the file opening but the content shows “This program cannot display the webpage”. How do you view it ??
Solution : While this is a common problem for those who download .chm files but who does nowadays, right ?? Anyways, When you try to open the file it will open but the pages that will be displayed will have the ‘This program cannot display the webpage’ error as shown below :
Scenario : You have installed NFS Most Wanted 2012 (The Criterion Reboot) on your PC and are not satisfied with the sensitivity settings of the game….there are NONE. But you want to give the game a Shot….what do you do ??
Solution : NFS Most Wanted 2012 by Criterion is a 2012 racing video game with nonlinear gameplay, developed by Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts. Announced on 4 June 2012, during EA’s E3 press conference, Most Wanted is the nineteenth title in the long-running Need for Speed series and was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted received positive reviews, which focused on the world map that blended the styles of previous Burnout and Need for Speed games, and the social features, while criticism fell on the single-player mode. Following its release, the game won several awards including the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards for Best Driving Game and was nominated for Best British Game and Best Online Multiplayer at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, and was repeatedly recognized as the best driving/racing game of 2012 by several outlets.
Scenario : You start task manager by right-clicking on the taskbar or by pressing Alt-Ctrl-Del but it always starts in standard mode and does not show processes from all users. You have to click on the button to make it show all and that too, you want the setting to be retained every time you start Task Manager.
Solution : By default, Task Manager does not start in admin mode. When you launch it, it usually starts as shown below and you have to click on the ‘Show processes from all users’ button to show all the processes. While this does work, it does not always start the task manager showing these processes so what do you do ??
Scenario : Its been sometime that there has been a post. Also TEDinator is not working properly as it should and the developer is not responding to us. What are we supposed to do in that case ??
Solution : First of all, let me begin by providing my apologies to all those people who took the time to either comment or mail me (via about page or direct mail) that i have not been able to reply to or for that matter update my blog or provide any update to TEDinator.
I am currently between changing jobs and the place i live at….these has sort of messed a lot of things and i have to had to cope with a lot of things so i could not come up with the time to do anything….and in fact it is still going to be another month before everything can become normal, methinks.
Now apart from this, the other reason i was not updating TEDinator was that i was planning and, have in fact, begun work on a new version which would automate everything and make the whole affair a lot smoother for the user, that is you, and i wanted to introduce the fix with that version but unfortunately, i have not been able to complete the version, So i am providing you with a fix for the “100 Videos” limit issue.
This is Version 3.5.
