Flash friend

Download Flash videos from a variety of sites with this handy tool.

Flash video on sites like YouTube is great, but what's even better is saving those videos to your computer to be viewed whenever you want. Save2pc Pro is an easy-to-use program that lets users save files from Flash video sites in a variety of formats. It's not the best such program we've ever seen, but overall, it works fine.

The program's interface is simple and intuitive. Users paste the URL of the desired video into a text box, choose a format and destination folder, and click Download. The program downloads the video and saves it in the proper format and locations. Users can choose from among 11 formats, including formats for portable devices and audio-only. Save2pc comes in four different editions, and this one, the Pro edition, gives users access to downloads from the vast majority of popular Flash videos sites, including YouTube, Google Video, DailyMotion, and more. Only the Ultimate version gives users access to more sites. There's really nothing about Save2pc Pro that particularly impressed us--the program doesn't even have a Help file--but it doesn't have any major drawbacks, either. It does the basics, does them well, and that's about all you can expect from it. If you're looking for a basic video downloader that's functional but doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, Save2pc Pro is a good choice.

Save2pc Pro is free to try, but the trial version only downloads the first half of each video. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
