    I was an early adopter, so I paid 2x the current price, just to endure repeated excuses about why it doesn't work for a multitude of sites I've reported back to them. Without this software, you can easily capture .FLV videos by opening the "TemporaryItems" folder -- if you know how to locate it -- then add the ".FLV" extension to the downloads before they have completely downloaded.

    Most recently, I discovered that my Safari toolbar would frequently toggle to hidden when opening new windows... It took much extra sleuthing to identify & remove the source of this annoyance -- Videobox -- because because these developers are sneaky about names they chose for resources "SpiceRack" & creating an invisible registration file -- ".Videobox.talf"

    As an early adopter, I expected that my $15 purchase was probably buying some wonky but promising software, which would improve with time. Sadly, instead of making it better, they've just made it cheaper...
