Best? Wouldn't the best solution be for JD to install the appropriate ffmpeg for the OS? Or at least just leave the existing ones alone if it can't do that?

That doesn't answer the question I asked.
Unless offering a workaround implies that JD will keep installing files regardless of whether they work on the OS.

JDownloader still supports those very old/no longer maintained Windows Versions and as long as you have a working Java version, JDownloader should run fine.
But the time may come that we will require a higher minimum version of Java and with it *kill those old OS*. At the moment there are no such plans.
But for external tools like ffmpeg we cannot always do extended checks if/how those are still working/compatible on those old OS.
If you're unhappy with the solution to prevent update overwriting your custom binaries, then I'm sorry.
We're trying to keep compatible with every OS... but you can't expect us to spend time/effort to do the same for used 3rd party applications where the solution is that easy and works fine.

We didn't know about no longer supported WindowsXP/Vista/2003. As I said, we can't do extended testing.

There is absolute no reason to use that old OS anymore.
Old hardware -> Use Linux. No license -> Use Linux/Buy license

JDownloader does not touch those binaries/paths until we release a new update of those binaries.

In case you're overwriting/replacing files that part of JDownloader file structure, of course those will be replaced/updated in case there is an update for them.
That is the reason why we recommend to place customized binaries somewhere else and not simply replace the existing ones

Surely the installer knows what OS it's running on, and so that it should not install files that will not work on it?

"Customized" implies you are adding your own feature; but if you don't use these builds, none of the ffmpeg functions work at all. These ffmpeg builds should be standard on XP, not a "customization" that most users will have no idea they need or where to find them.

You know now.
Anyway, it's not for myself.
I've fixed my own installation, but anyone who doesn't know how to hunt down the various threads here and find the special builds and how to stop JD from overwriting them will have no hope.

Well, not for you. For me, there is.
I've only got one PC, and on that I need to do my work, and for that I have a suite of antique programs, some dating back to 1990. I'm sure it's possible to make them run in some emulation on new OS, but working out how to do that is not trivial. Even worse would be trying to move 25 years of files to new applications. (I have recently been asked to do updates on projects I did in the early 90s.) I may have to do it some time, but so far everything vital works and I don't want to mess with it.
I don't ask for any special consideration, but not everyone is just using their PC for internet apps and media player.

I'd like to thank Jiaz and jdboy6 for the fix. I'm another MS-curmudgeon, who prefers to stick with WinXP. A while ago my jdownloader broke, started getting ffmpeg error messages on about half of all attempts to fetch YT videos. I tried installing a new ffmpeg, same problem. Identified to incompatibility with bcrypt.dll and ntdll.dll, leading into versionitis and registry-hack hell. Thanks a lot ffmpeg guys, not.

Putting the relevant two files from
rwijnsma.home.xs4all.nl/files/ffmpeg/ffmpeg-N-86763-g341f012-win32-static_legacy.7z
into JDownloader 2.0\tools\Windows\ffmpeg\i386
Works for me. Thanks!
I'll deal with any future jdownloader version overwrites of those, if & when they happen.

ffmpeg fails for you. Did you copy over the JDownloader installation from different system or upgrade your windows version?
according to log, ffmpeg fails to launch.
Please check if you can launch
tools/Windows/ffmpeg/x64/ffmpeg.exe from your JDownloader directory
in cmd.exe

Something must have deleted that file from your system. You can restore it manually by
1.) Close JDownloader
2.) Delete Core.jar file and the folders tmp and update
3.) start JDownloader and it will update itself to latest available version and restore missing files
after that the avcodec-58.dll file should be available again

I had already cleared out the folder and reinstalled, but I test if it happens again. Hope that's ok

Does the file AVCodec-58.dll exist or not in your folder?

Default FFMpeg problem

Dear JIAZ, I have the same problem in my JDOWNLOADER 2 from about 2 day.

My conditions is the same from about 15 years and JDOWNLOADER 2 was working very well:
PC with O.S. WindowsXP - SP3 - 32 bit & Jdownloader 2 portable and automatically upgraded to v. 23 Jul 2018.

If I download any video from YouTube, the dowload starting, but after download the file an error stop the process with line message:
"Saltato -FFMpeg Mancante"
or "Componente aggiuntivo obsoleto"
(my language interface is in italian)

On seek of the solution I have tryed your idea on the Jdownloader 2 Forum, and I tryed:

1.) Close JDownloader
2.) Delete Core.jar file and the folders tmp and update
3.) start JDownloader and it will update itself to latest available version and restore missing files
after that the avcodec-58.dll file should be available again

Yes, the avcodec-58.dll is again in the directory c:\Programmi\_Jdownloader\tools\Windows\ffmpeg\i386\ (in my configuration).

Now I try for new download of the same file:
- the download not start and the identical error message appear instantly
"Saltato -FFMpeg Mancante" !!

Now I tryed this:

On Jdownloader 2 tab OPTION > OPTION ADVANCED

I search the word FFMPEG and I set:
- FFmpegSetup: Binary Path Probe to NULL
- FFmpegSetup: Binary Path to NULL

I close Jdownloader and and restart it.

Now I start the download again from YouTube, same video.
Jdownloader start the download regularly, BUT at the end of download, the error message appear again:
"Saltato -FFMpeg Mancante" !!

For what this?

This problem is present from 2 day only, and I not changed any configuration of the WindowsXP.

Is possible help to me?

Many thanks for your interest to my problem.

Bye for now.

Exclamation Can't download videos in desired format in Windows XP (can't find ffmpeg plugin)

On my old pc I am forced to download videos from YouTube via virtual machine with windows 7, can someone fix it? Other services work without problem.

@radicalchic and EustachyNachy
see https://board.jdownloader.org/showpo...51&postcount=2
@EustachyNachy: no need for virtual machine, just downgrade ffmpeg to a version that still supports windows xp, eg
@radicalchic and EustachyNachy
