Editors' Review

+

GetFLV is a straightforward program that lets you download and convert videos from various online sites straight through the app's browser. The step-by-step instructions guide you through the process, so even if you're new to this type of program, you'll have no trouble getting the results you want.

Pros

Browser options: There are four different browsers to choose from that are built in to this app. They include iPad and Android options, as well as Internet Explorer. This is useful because different video sites play better through some browsers as opposed to others. And you can also use this feature to customize your user experience a bit.

Convenient conversions: In addition to downloading videos, this program also lets you convert them into different output formats. This means you can transfer the downloaded videos to other devices, like your iPhone or iPad, and play them without going through a separate program to convert them to a compatible format.

Cons

Switching browsers: It is sometimes necessary to switch browsers in this program because videos from different sites play better on one rather than another. But each time you switch browsers, you have to shut down the program and restart it, which also means restarting your Web search. After a while, though, you'll know ahead of time which program to use for each site you like to download from.

Limited trial: You won't be able to actually download files during the 14-day trial period.

Bottom Line

GetFLV is a versatile program that gives you access to just about any type of downloadable video. It offers a nice range of features, and you can try it out for free for 14 days, although the trial version does not support downloading. The full version costs $59.95 for a one-year subscription or $159.95 for lifetime access.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of GetFLV 9.6.6.8.

"Deceptive Trial Offer of a Very Average Prog"

January 21, 2015  |  By mannshands

 |  Version: GetFLV 9.7.5.6

Pros

Was a fast download.

Cons

Uninstall left 10 items behind that Iobit Uninstaller deep scan removed for me.
Deceptive trial terms.Their website says 1 month unlimited trial when all you get is a 14 day trial limited to 30mb per download! Deceptive and average at best!

Summary

Some comments here are of the exact same text as another comment by a different user, NewBlarkBob and Powermac8978. These are obviously posted by the same person to boost the rating of the very average program and its deceptive trial use terms. Their website says 1 month unlimited trial whan all you get is a 14 day trial limited to 30mb per download! Deceptive and average at best!

"Fantastic! This software WORKS!"

October 15, 2014  |  By NewBlarkBob

 |  Version: GetFLV 9.6.8.9

Pros

Awesome program! This is pretty much a very easy way to download videos from websites. You download using very few clicks. I usually don't like to pay for software for fear of not getting what you pay for, but it works great and it's definitely worth the spending. Had some technical difficulties where I couldn't use it for a few; missed this software so bad during this time ... when I finally contacted customer service, they got back to me super fast and were very helpful. I honestly could not be happier with the product or customer service.

Cons

None except I wish it was free-but thank you for the free tria :)

Summary

Awesome program!!
