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.

    "Fantastic! This software WORKS! Rcomend 100%"

    June 27, 2014   |   By powermac8978

    Version: GetFLV 9.6.6.1

    Pros

    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 - I have not experienced any problems with the current (paid) version

    Summary

    Definitely worth it! The easiest youtube content downloader available! Easy to use, fast download and no risk for viruses and malwares! A must try!

    Version: GetFLV 9.6.6.1

    Pros

    Easy to use, automatically loads URL into program. Very user friendly and with the free trial to try it out all I can say is Thank You! All pros, no cons, it's a tool that should be part of all standard software packages with new computers.

    Cons

    None except I wish it was free-but thank you for the free trial!

    Summary

    Awesome program, helps start your collection of you tube videos you want to keep. VERY easy to use, and an essential part of the software I have on my computer! As I mentioned above, it should be bundled with all new computers!

    "Misleading @ $60 + ANOTHER $60 per-year subsription"

    June 13, 2014   |   By billmotley

    Version: GetFLV 9.6.5.8

    Pros

    Decent software, it has it's own browser to download videos from website. Good video quality compared to other FLV download programs.
    Free update for a year (with a catch, see Cons).

    Cons

    Cons
    Stopped working after a year claiming 'not compatible with new flash player', you will need to pay registration fee again. Big Rip-Off!

    Won't let you save bookmarks or favorite links.

    Summary

    Major deal-breaker: Must pay yearly to re-register

    Version: GetFLV 9.6.5.6

    Pros

    works but...

    Cons

    misleading trial

    Summary

    "free 14 day trial" , but you can't download a single thing. It only lets you download half of a file and less than 30 meg. REALLY? $150 for the program and the customer can't try it. plus they want to charge a yearly subscription

    Updated on May 26, 2014
