FFmpeg

FFmpeg is an open source, cross-platform media encoding/decoding/conversion software. Without having FFmpeg on your system, you will be able to download all classic video formats. However, you will need to install FFmpeg on your system to use some advanced CYS features, like saving any DASH video formats complete with audio with a single click, or the unique high-quality audio conversion/extraction functionality. Works on Windows, Linux and Mac.

 

MP3 Converter/Audio Extractor

Convert the audio tracks from videos to MP3 or WAV, or save in native format (Ogg Vorbis, AAC/M4A, MP3). The converter/extractor is free to use and contains no ads. To enable, you must download the FFmpeg installer (see instructions below).

 

DASH Video Formats

480p and 1080p are now video-only. There are separate audio streams to download and package together with these video streams to make MP4 files. CYS will do all this for you automatically in a process called “muxing”, with a single click, but you need to have the latest version of FFmpeg installed on your system (see intructions below).

 

 

To enable FFmpeg on Windows:

 

1.Click on the link below to download FFmpeg. The FFmpeg file can be found in the "bin" folder

 

when unzipped:

download you need, just download the 32-bit version.
