  4. Is there a way to turn off updates completely? And not have it download any components without express permission?

    Especially not have it download youtube-dl and other stuff immediately upon first execution?

    it's best to things updated such as youtube-dl because youtube & other sites like to change things to try and
    prevent downloading.

    I am not sure which compiled version you are running of the software, cause my Windows version is certainly not forcefully downloading anything.
    Infact, You have to manually check for updates for it to check+download. :P

    All I can tell you is that I had never used or installed PyIDM before today and the first thing it did upon initial execution was to attempt to download youtube-dl.

    I know because my firewall blocked it from doing so.

    PyIDM even confessed about its attempt to do so by writing about the attempt in log.txt.

    As far as updates, in the settings -> updates tab, there is only options to check for updates every 1, 7, or 30 days. Not zero or never.

  8. Thats right, PyIDM never download any thing automatically, for youtube-dl you have to press a button to check for a new version and it will ask you to download it or not,

    I think you miss understood messages in log file,
    The check for update will only check if there is a new version is available or not,
    By checking 2 text files, read them in memory and nothing saved to disk
    one is ChangeLog.txt for PyIDM, which contains version number, here is the link for it
    https://github.com/pyIDM/pyIDM/raw/master/ChangeLog.txt

    The second one is a text file version.py for youtube-dl, link:
    https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/raw/master/youtube_dl/version.py
    Which has version information only, here is the contents:
    from __future__ import unicode_literals

    __version__ = '2020.03.24'

    Here is the contents of log.txt after I pressed exactly zero buttons giving permission for PyIDM to download anything:

    Code:
    >> Starting PyIDM version: 2020.4.17 Frozen
    >> operating system: Windows-8.1-6.3.9600 - x86
    >> current working directory: E:\pyIDM
    >> Load Application setting from E:\pyIDM
    >> setting.cfg not found
    >> Load previous download items from E:\pyIDM
    >> downloads.cfg file not found
    >> check ffmpeg availability?
    >> ffmpeg checked ok! - at:  E:\pyIDM\ffmpeg.exe
    >> days since last check for update: 109 day(s).
    >> download()> downloading https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-dl/raw/master/youtube_dl/version.py
    >> download()> downloading https://github.com/pyIDM/pyIDM/releases/download/extra/ChangeLog.txt
    >> youtube-dl load_time= 10 seconds

    Any network access to the internet, whether saved only to memory or instead to disk, is a download. How else could the contents of the http url have gotten into memory if it wasn't downloaded?

    I don't remember pressing any buttons before it also started to download the youtube-dl executable. I will delete everything and try again to check for sure.

    Sure, all of this turns out to be benign. But how would anyone know that to be the case beforehand?

    Why you said it started to download youtube-dl executable, where did you get this information from?

    My firewall, COMODO, displayed the ip address and filename of the youtube-dl executable and gave me the option of allowing it or blocking it. I blocked it. The only question is whether or not I accepted any prompt from PyIDM to initiate this download. I had never used PyIDM before, but I never allow unknown standalone windows programs to do network access that I did not initiate. So, it is very unlikely that I would grant such a request. But since I had never used PyIDM before, I will delete everything and check again to be sure.

    At minimum PyIDM does uninitiated network access to check for updates. The author has already acknowledged this. I just asked if this option could be disabled, including from before the very first execution. Many programs have this option. Apparently you have taken great offense at this request.

    I will post full logs, including logs from my firewall, after I repeat the process anew.

  13. Just to explain my point,
    It is a legitimate request to ask for permission before initiating any network activity, and i have no problem with that, actually this request must be implemented, so I totally agree with you in this point, and it is not true I’m taking great offense at this request, because without user’s feedback/ requests this application will no be improved

    It just another thing that I already cleared in my previous post which is that the application didn’t try to download youtube-dl “EXECUTABLE”, it tried to download a “TEXT FILE” containing the version number

    sin. today i have download another video then my log has changed.
    what is strange is the fact, as you can see in my image, that all seemed ok however the final file was only 90 MB, while as you can see i downloaded a 1.6GB file...
    but now the log file has changed and i have already deleted that file and downloaded it with another program. patience. regards!

    Well I’m glad you downloaded the file you needed, this is our target, it doesn’t matter which program you used,

    Next time if you find such a problem, it is better to copy log file “log.txt” from application folder to some where else, so we can find the reason for the problem and try to fix it.
    Cheers
