Editors' Review

Featuring a video converter and a Web browser with an embedded media downloader, Mac Video Downloader for Mac helps you find and grab audio and video files from virtually any video-sharing Web site. This premium app manages to detect approximately 90 percent of all videos, with a 100 percent success rate for popular sites like YouTube and Vimeo, but it eats a lot of system resources.

After a quick installation, Mac Video Downloader launches its built-in browser. The browser, itself, behaves just like Safari with one exception: it lets you change the User Agent between Mac, iOS, and Android, effectively emulating the Web browsers of mobile devices. As soon as you land on a page with embedded audio or video content, Mac Video Downloader will pop up a window through which you can choose which file to download. The download is generally fast, but it depends of course on your connection. The conversion is also relatively fast; we were able to convert a four-minute FLV file to an MP4 in about 20 seconds. When it comes to performance, however, the app leaves a large footprint: over 500MB of RAM.

Mac Video Downloader provides an all-in-one solution for anyone who wants to download and convert media files for their mobile devices or just to keep locally on their Mac. While this app does its job well, the price tag and the large amount of RAM it eats are two big disadvantages, especially when comparing the app to the many free and better optimized options out there.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mac Video Downloader for Mac 2.5.

"why all the video downloaders come with a browser!"

September 25, 2016  |  By iamjacky

 |  Version: Mac Video Downloader 3.3.9.88

Pros

it is working quite well sometimes., but it's too slow!

Cons

As I said previously, it is just too slow!!
Thus, I had to try the other applications, I really found that too many video downloader come with a buil-in browser. Well, I have to admit that it is convenient to preview videos sometimes. And I found a pretty cool video downloader which it is similar to this one, but much more fast than this one.
It is called vGuruSoft Video Downloader for Mac( I have recommended it to many people). I said this app is cool not only because it is very fast, but also it supports to seclect resolution and get subtitles.

"Easy to Use and Effective!!"

February 03, 2016  |  By killerstream

2016-02-03 05:55:48  |  By killerstream

 |  Version: Mac Video Downloader 2.9.318.18

Pros

I've tried three different software programs to capture videos, particularly because I want to record episodes for playback on my media system. This is the first that worked and was simple to operate.

Cons

Easy Use and Effective!!

Summary

Overall a great program that allows you to download videos from both paid (where you pay for a login membership) and free sites. It is running on both my iMac and MacBook Pro.

"The best download software I've used before!"

January 01, 2016  |  By runeymeisy

2016-01-01 18:07:07  |  By runeymeisy

 |  Version: Mac Video Downloader 2.9.398.18

Pros

The program works like a browser and you must access the video content like you would thru any other browser. Once you start to play the video a download dialog box opens. From time to time you need to download the free update to keep the software working properly so keep the download link. The customer support is through email, however they respond quickly and are helpful.

Cons

Sense of this software is imperfect, needs to be improved.

Summary

Overall, it is a very perfect software.

"Doesn't work - and there is NO support"

August 26, 2015  |  By khsdkahskhdajsd

2015-08-26 12:10:28  |  By khsdkahskhdajsd

 |  Version: Mac Video Downloader 2.9.88.8

Pros

Very little.

Cons

It doesn't download videos, plan and simple. It's successfully detected 1 out of 20 videos I've tried to record, and they've been a series of YouTube, Vimeo, and other videos. It won't run on Macs in OS 10.10.

When I emailed support, they never replied. I followed up four times over a month, and nothing. $60 GONE DOWN THE DRAIN.

Summary

This application sucks. I'd say their support sucks as well, but how can something suck if it doesn't exist? At this point, I think it's probably a scam.
