Editors' review

Arc Soft Video Downloader helps users download movies directly to their computer, but there's a second step (and another program) if you want to watch your videos.

This freeware program is incredibly simple to use. Opening the program leads to a small rectangular screen with simple instructions for downloading a video. Little action is required on the part of the user. As soon as a video is viewed online, an ArcSoft icon appears with the ability to download the movie. Simply clicking on this icon initiates the process, and you can see the files for download on the program's small display.

This process was simple and effective. However, we didn't like the fact that the videos could not be viewed directly from this program. In order to watch their downloads, users must also download ArcSoft's Media Converter. Users are taken directly to its installation, which is very simple; we were just turned off by this slight detour. Otherwise, everything worked great in this free program and we highly recommend it for those looking to take Web-based video content and save it to their computer.

    "Installed but didn't work"

    March 30, 2013   |   By AlSleet

    Version: ArcSoft Video Downloader 3.0.0.65

    Pros

    Product didn't work

    Cons

    didn't work at all--uninstalled. Although the installation ran smoothly I believe something must have been corrupted. I was prepared to reinstall but the uninstall not going smoothly didn't inspire confidence though I got it to work.

    Summary

    When I reviewed the ratings for this (it obviously works for some) I was surprised I'd looked at the rating for all products, not for the current version.

    "Doesn't work for me"

    February 08, 2013   |   By ratt57

    Version: ArcSoft Video Downloader 3.0.0.65

    Pros

    Can't find any.

    Cons

    I'm glad I only used the trial version of this. The program has only four lines of instruction, one of them stating "go to the Flash Video control on the top left hand side of your screen." There's no such control, and I've updated my Flash settings with no change. If this is the best ArcSoft can do as dcoumentation for their program, I'm glad I didn't spend the bucks to buy the complete version. I wasn't able to download anything.

    Summary

    Uninstalling it.
