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.
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.
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.
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.

Version: GetFLV 9.9.658.88
Seemed to work, but only captured a few minutes before it asked for money.
Trial version only downloads part of video, so can't tell if it will work for a full video.
No address or phone number in their contact info so who knows where they're located... would be very risky to send them money.
Yes, the software works as highlighted, the list of places it can download is fairly large, either medias source, but also online trainings, etc... as a means to have offline content it works, good.
1. pricy for such reduced capabilities, after all it only downloads content. 2. It will only work for a (fixed) period, the full version, it tells you that due to a later version of Flash the software needs to be upgraded, and of course your serial doesnt work in the latest "revision", at the same full price, none of that is explained anywhere, and there are visibly no major changes but small tuning, so, deceptive practice, you cannot sell a product that you say is unlimited then have it stop working when a version of Flash (or other) changes in a computer, this is called LIMITED version.
If the developer plan on having such limitations they should advertise it, and offer different versions, like many packages now, unlimited till major OS changes or unlimited lifetime or renewing support license fee, 'cause in this case it is not LIFETIME UNLIMITED, and there is no mention of it.
Also, in this price range of package, you'd expect better clarity and transparency compared to ANY software in this price range.
LASTLY, there are a lot of fake reviews on this software, same pattern of mispelling, exact same review content, grammar error due to language barrier, review describing product capabilities rather than experience of the usability (search web for studies on evaluation of fake vs real products reviews)
Developer: spend time updating YOUR site, YOUR help section and your business practice rather than generating fake 5 star reviews to influence the rating of your software.
I extracted the zip file installer and during the installation not everything was installed, kept getting errors however the program managed to install on the computer and it doesnt work. Im trying to uninstall and it wont uninstall the error messages say that i dont have administrative rights to uninstall it?
I just want to get rid of this faulty program from my computer.
