"Does what I need it to"
Surprised to see other reviews had problems with slow install and slow running. My install was very quick and I think it performs it's tasks pretty rapidly. If you download a standard You Tube music video the download is finished before the actual video is. You can then convert the vid into your choice of multiple audio only formats such as MP3. So in effect, you can get thousands of free songs for your MP3 player just off of You Tube alone. There's also a trimmer for your vids that is super easy to use. I think it's pretty cool, especially considering it's free.
It would be really cool if it would download TV shows. But there's a lot of good movies you can get on You Tube.
The first thing I realised about it was that it would play a lot of files that the stock Windows Media Player would not play. I had a lot of vid clips I'd gleened from the internet and most of them wouldn't play with the WMP. But as soon as I installed the RealPlayer I could play every one of them.All in all I think it's a great little product. And you're not gonna beat the price.
