Editors' review

Metacafe for Windows effectively downloads videos, photos, and games from a community resource, though occasionally it froze on us during testing.

The interface includes thumbnails and a simple file list that make it easy to select videos, photos, or games to view, but it also features a small rotating advertisement that we found annoying. The Metacafe broadcasters select the content, so you have no control over which items are available to view. You can comment on the content and choose to save certain items to your Metacafe for Windows desktop. The installation process went quickly and without trouble, as items were immediately added to the desktop. You can customize which channels feed content to your desktop, by selecting category tick boxes. A family filter is available to prevent violent or explicit items from downloading.

Overall, the program utilized few resources, though we found it necessary to use the Task Manager to close Metacafe after the program froze on us. Even though Metacafe content is available on the Internet, users may appreciate the ease of using this freeware tool to automatically download and play files.
