Why KeepVid Not Working - Problems and Their Solutions

If the KeepVid applet is not working on your Macbook, you can detect the following causes and solutions:

  • There is no sound in the downloaded video clip. One of the most often issues that KeepVid users face is the loss of sound after downloading videos from YouTube. Even multiple downloads don’t eliminate this problem and it remains. This behavior occurs in 2 cases: a video gets corrupted while downloading or is saved simply as "Video Only".
    Solutions: choose another quality or format without "Video Only" option before downloading, use other programs to combine video and audio, buy KeepVid Pro version.

  • KeepVid doesn’t download videos. If you are one of those users who can’t download files by using KeepVid, you may have an idea that all videos are not downloaded with this applet. So the tool may seem unreliable. Actually this error may occur on both Mac and Windows systems and reinstalling the applet or enabling Java won’t help. A possible reason is KeepVid doesn’t support this website. It supports 51 sites only. Or the video format is not in KeepVid’s list.
    Solution: check out if this website is supported by KeepVid. Stick to WebM, 3GP, MP4, M4V, FLV video formats.

  • 502 Bad Gateway. This error is caused by different problems between online servers. They are usually not under your control. But sometimes the problem can be with your browser that thinks there is an issue or your network.
    Solutions: check out your Internet equipment, reload the page, open your browser again, clear the cache or delete cookies. If the problem is not solved, return to the website after a while.

  • Video playback error. If you download 480p videos, you may notice that your video player reads the file ok. The problem may be with the file name that is “videoplayback.mp4” every time you download the file. It’s caused by YouTube updates.
    Solutions: click "Download MP4" 480p button and "Ctr + S" for Windows or "Command + S" for Mac to save a video file to your device. You can open "Download MP4" 480p link in a new tab and then press "Ctr + S" for Windows or "Command + S" for Macbook. If you select 720p quality, your files will be downloaded without any problems.

  • KeepVid doesn’t work on Mac. If you use KeepVid on Macbook, you may see a popup window asking you to allow the applet to run. The Allow button may be greyed out with no possibility to click on it and to launch the tool. The reason of such behavior is that KeepVid work is subject to Java rules, but it’s not allowed to run on Mac on default.
    Solution: enable Java plugins on your Macbook. You can download the latest Java version that works with KeepVid from the Keepvid website.

If you haven’t found your problem in the list above, write us or leave a comment. KeepVid not working with YouTube or other website may annoy you a lot with never-ending popups.
