Editors' Review

+

People often want to download online videos from sites like YouTube to watch offline or edit. ClipGrab for Mac claims to allow users to save Internet videos to their desktop, but ultimately doesn't deliver.

ClipGrab for Mac is available as freeware without any restrictions. The program is small and installed easily after a quick download. After installation, the program starts quickly, but there are no instructions, and product support appears minimal. While sparse, the interface is fairly intuitive. Menus allow the user to paste a link with a video directly into the program or search directly in YouTube from the program. The interface and search features work well and return YouTube's results, but that is where the functionality ends. During testing, when clicking on YouTube links, the program went to the conversion menu, but error messages were returned about half the time saying the pages were not available. When they did load and the conversion was selected, an additional error message came back stopping the process. None of the YouTube videos we tried even started converting. While the program downloaded, installed, and started up as expected, it simply did not perform its functions.

While available for free, ClipGrab for Mac did not work as intended, and those seeking to save online videos to their desktop should look elsewhere.

There are no pros for this product

Does not work. Its searches for whatever YouTube clip/song you want, but when you click on it, it says the link does not exist.

Summary

I used to LOVE ClipGrab! I used it all the time. But about 4-5 months ago it just stopped working and it hasn't worked since. I am so disappointed. Do not waste your time downloading this.

The latest version of ClipGrap 3.2.0.6 is able to download from many independent sites as well as YouTube and the rest. You should donate after trying it on a trial basis, but test out the new version for yourself!

Doesn't download videos from the internet

I spent 75 minutes trying to download a single video from Youtube and Clipgrab failed every time. Don't waste your time. I didn't heed the warning of a previous reviewer and I ended up wasting my time.
