Can't record some You Tube videos due to resolution

Post by Journstyx » Sun May 22, 2016 4:56 am

Some videos appear to need a different way of recording using Slimbrowser. I'm not sure where to change the settings. The message reads: this video has to be downloaded via a different method. Please play the video with your desired resolution for at least 5 seconds. If you have switched resolution, wait until the resolution switching is complete. After that, click this button again to start download.
I'm using Windows 7. Please can someone let me know where to change the resolution that's being described? Thanks in advance. Best regards, Journstyx

Thanks Rappinrod. Much appreciated. Strange that no one from Flashpeak/Slimbrowser can answer the question. Anyway your suggestion works! :D

Nothing strange here. This is a user to user help forum. It is not a developer run help desk.
