Editors' Review

+

ClipGrab downloads and converts Internet videos with ease and offers more features than most other YouTube downloaders. It doesn't download very quickly, though, and the video and audio quality won't be the ideal. However, if you need a program that downloads videos automatically, you might want this one.

When you try to install this program, it will try to change your default browser and add some extra programs. If you dodge those, the program, itself, downloads very quickly. Its layout is very minimalistic, but it puts all the tools you need right in your face. You can search for any video and the program will go find it on YouTube. You can drag and drop links from YouTube, Vimeo, and other video sharing sites with relative ease. If ClipGrab is open, it will automatically detect links when you copy them, so you don't have to open the program to start downloading. Videos don't download that quickly compared to similar programs, but you can pull just the audio from a music video, which is a nice touch. Whether you download audio or video, the quality can be a little weak. This is less noticeable when you download in the highest quality. However, that makes the downloads slow to a crawl, revealing this program's one weakness.

Even though it has some fantastic features, the video and audio quality is sub-par. It's not the worst quality you can download, though. If you don't need the highest quality, give ClipGrab a shot. You'll appreciate some of the advanced features that you just won't find in similar downloads.

"Great piece of software!"

November 30, 2015  |  By dmoney2023

2015-11-30 18:57:32  |  By dmoney2023

 |  Version: ClipGrab 3.4.3

Pros

Easy to download, easy to install, easy to use.
All you do is copy and paste the url into the program and it gets you the video super quick.

Cons

None I have found so far.

Summary

I'm some random dude that downloads youtube videos for personal educational purposes. I'm in the medical field and I'm always trying to stay up on my knowledge. I downloaded the program directly from the clipgrab website, and there was even a button to download the program without any 3rd party offers. I have downloaded a few videos from both youtube and vimeo and the program has worked flawlessly. I have not seen any malware, adware, or any extra stuff downloaded with the program. The other people leaving reviews must be trolls or leaving reviews for money or something. It makes me furious when people lie on reviews either for money or to promote their own product, so I thought I would log back into cnet after about 10 years or so to set the record straight for this great product. Anyway, that's all I got.

And I'm on windows 7. Peace out.

"Great easy to use program on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit"

October 04, 2015  |  By bigaussie

2015-10-04 21:54:11  |  By bigaussie

 |  Version: ClipGrab 3.4.3

Pros

The interface is clean and easy to see what to do. Have it running while you browse your fave video site. As soon as you copy the link to the video Clipgrab will popup and ask what you want to do. Select save as original or many other video formats or even just as mp3.

Cons

No issues with this great program that I could find.

Summary

The other reviews here must be trolls. Like the Cnet review said -- Very Good.

Run your own anti-virus scan of the downloaded program before installing if you want to; but the one I got directly from the developers website at clipgrab.org was clean.

Pros

OK search function, Clean downloads, Good user interface

Cons

It is totally infested with horrible viruses.
I ad to wipe the disk and re-install Windoze. . .
It's adware, but then it loads all kinds of other nasty stuff.

DO NOT USE UNTIL THEY FIX THE VIRUS PROBLEM!!!

"Installs malware."

February 16, 2015  |  By zrainey

2015-02-16 16:25:34  |  By zrainey

 |  Version: ClipGrab 3.4.3

Pros

Costs nothing. Worth every cent.

Cons

Installs malware without consent and runs malware without your knowledge or consent. In my case, installed and ran "Optiizer Pro".
Also, version is designed to expire, giving error messages, in order to force you to download "new" version packaged with more malware.

Summary

Yield not to temptation. Don't download. Don't install. Don't run program.
