"excellant and unusual programme."

August 23, 2010  |  By noseel5

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

records automatically without downloading all videos that are running on the screen.
as all operations are automatic its very simple to use. you just go back to the history
box and save or delete the videos recorded.

Cons

the product is fine ,but windows will sometimes block its operations as it sees it as a security risk depending on what web sites you visit.

Summary

this product is simple to use ,do not have to think about downloading as the video records automatically,all you have to think about is deleting the stuff you do not want and saving the videos you do want. it even has its own small screen player so you can look at what has been recorded.it has its own library which automatically writes the list of videos recorded.the videos are stored in a temporary memory.you can then decide if you want to keep them to windows folders or delete out of memory.
to summarise,a very good designed product with one small glitch and that is its integration with windows which will block it when there is a security risk.

"Doesn't capture thus far..."

May 28, 2010  |  By Thothie

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

None so far. Adware seems minimal for this sort of toolbar program though.

Cons

Tried to use this to capture a PBS video, failed. Not seen it work on anything yet.

Summary

Might work for others.

"The Webpage Can Not Be Found"

February 25, 2010

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

None at this time

Cons

Unable to get to the download page. When clicking on download, it takes me to the download page, then immediately to "this webpage can not be found."

Summary

It looks like it works for some, but don't know why it doesn't for others.

"This was a great program!"

January 15, 2010  |  By brianalso

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

So easy to use! Don't even have to make a concious decision to save a video at the time of watching, as it is automatically saved in the 500mb cache that the program sets up. It converts video and audio to ,just about any format desired

Cons

While it was working, it worked faultlessly and I can't think of anything that I disliked about it!

Summary

This very day; after finally succumbing to the nagging from Mozilla to update to
Firefox3.5 ;I discovered that ,although it was back in it's usual place; my trusty
Ask and Record Toolbar was now 'as dead as a dodo!' Anybody else had this problem
and is there a solution to it? I notice that the Toolbar is still version 1...are there plans to update it to be compatible with later Firefox versions?

Updated on Jan 16, 2010

The Ask and Record Toolbar seems to have been replaced with the Freecord 4 Toolbar which appears to be exactly the same except that it works with later versions of Firefox. It is offered free when you download the free FLV player from Applian Technologies. Hope that this solves some problems for people having troubles with Ask.

"Download page can't be found"

December 30, 2009  |  By jcwindsor

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

Can't find any since the download page can't be found. I've tried it with 4 different browsers on 3 different computers. Nada, zilch, nothing.

Cons

See Pros, same for pros and cons. If I could have given a 0 stars rating I would have. One star is to high for this mess.

Summary

Don't waste you time. Sounded good is the only reason I continued to try.

"I LOVE THIS TOOLBAR"

December 02, 2009  |  By coolagarry

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

I particularly like its ability to download youtube videos or convert them to mp3 audios whilst they are playing. It also converts video from one type to another.
So easy!!

Cons

I was disappointed when it stopped wiorking but found that it was not compatible with the latest Firefox browser. I downloaded an older browser an not its working great again.

Summary

The only toolbar I would have on my pc

"Just What I Was Looking For...."

October 31, 2009  |  By rokk-c

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

I just want to download music that's already on my playlist on MySpace to my computer! I tried 3 other products that were supposed to do this,but didn't. Ask & Record Toolbar does just what it says & is so simple, just click the button & it records!

Cons

None so far but I haven't checked everything. I've only used the Record Audio & it worked perfect. I don't usually download anything with a toolbar but this is great. I'm going to explore it all now & If I find anything bad I'll be back to report it

Summary

Does what it says. Very simple to use. FREE!

"Easy to Use and Versatile. Records and Converts Well."

October 29, 2009  |  By figments4me

 |  Version: Ask & Record Toolbar 1.0

Pros

This product was very easy to use, no real learning curve at all. It recorded when other recorders had difficulty and did a good job, even on large files. It also works well as a search engine.

Cons

After a short time, it refuses to save files and/or delete them. It gives no reason so it's difficult to troubleshoot. It still records but it doesn't do any good if you can't save the file you recorded.

Summary

I like the product and hope to eventually figure out why it refuses to save files. I've tried everything so far with no success but continue to look for solutions. It still works well as a search engine so remains usefull if only for that. I could find no user manual or help section with which to solve the problems I'm having with it, and that is very frustrating.
