Editors' review

GetFLV from SuperLogix is a shareware Flash video application that's free to try for 14 days. It's a full-featured tool that can create, convert, and download Flash videos, but unlike freeware tools that only work with a few sites or file types (or just with YouTube) GetFLV can download pretty much any video that can be downloaded, and from any video hosting site, too. It also quickly and easily converts videos to play on your iPhone or other device, and it packs some extras like an Audio Ripper and an FLV Fixer than can repair damaged or corrupted files.

If you've ever used any of the freeware Flash video downloaders, the first thing you're likely to notice about GetFLV is its premium-quality user interface. A sidebar on the left accesses the FLV Utilities, starting with the FLV Browser. This embedded window lets you search securely for videos directly from inside GetFLV's interface without having to install any add-ons or codecs to your main browser. GetFLV can download videos from more than 200,000 sites, so finding suitable material was no problem. We searched for a familiar title and clicked on one of the results. GetFLV not only previewed the video but automatically detected all the matches to a list view that we could sort and edit for batch jobs. Clicking FLV Downloader opened the main downloading tool, which includes Conversion options, including a specific choice for iPad Video. The FLV Converter is also very easy to use, thanks in part to prominently displayed (and easy) instructions. The FLV Maker and FLV Audio Ripper are very similar to the converter, only optimized for creating Flash videos to post online and for extracting and saving audio tracks from video, respectively. We didn't have a bad FLV file to try the FLV Fixer on, but it's nice to know it's there. GetFLV uses a series of pop-up Options dialogs for each function, such as Encoder, Frame Rate, Bit Rate, and more for both audio and video.

GetFLV isn't cheap, but it's a much better performer than most of the competition, as the free trial shows.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Getflv 9.1.1.1.

    "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

    actually 60 a year and 160 to buy!
