About DASH video : Why can't I hear any sound from it?
Well, of course, DASH video is, as stated by it's name, contain only video stream, there's no audio track in it! You should also download DASH audio format and play it together with DASH video.
How can you played it together/at the same time? My blog has the answer: Play DASH video and DASH audio at the same time using VLC

What's 'Service Temporary Unavailable' error message?
Sometimes, you'll get that message on your browser when trying to access or download from ytconv.com. To maintain server stability, I had to limit number of connections you made to ytconv.com server. It is indirect message sent by server telling you to finish your download before trying to get another Youtube videos. Sorry for this hassle, it's for our own good.

I was throwed back to fontpage after 'checking'/'grabbing' process without any error message
This happened when the server is in very high load, just keep trying until it got through conversion process.

Yes it does. Check the "Supported Sites" menu for the complete list.
