    "YouTube support removed! Adware/Malware added!"

    February 4, 2013  |   By natergator

    Pros

    Flash Video Downloader used to be an easy & safe product to download flash-based videos embedded into various websites.

    Cons

    They've secretly slipped Adware/Malware into their product (Superfish "Featured Shopper"). Flash Video Downloader obviously tracks your browsing history (that's how it know's when there's a flash video available to download)... who knows where your browsing data is going now that they've got AdWare/Malware involved.

    Also, Flash Video Downloader recently removed support to download YouTube videos. (I suspect Google/YouTube probably forced that change for copyright purposes.)

    Summary

    With Adware/Malware added to the product and YouTube support removed removed, I suspect most users will no longer find this product helpful or safe to use.
