Editors' Review

SpeedBit Video Downloader downloads videos from sites like YouTube, Dailymotion, and other Flash video providers without making the task needlessly complicated. Speedbit delighted us with its ease of use; there was no trial and error, no need to consult the Help file, no guessing about how to proceed. We simply clicked a few buttons to download and convert our desired content. If you use Firefox or Internet Explorer, downloading Flash videos doesn't get much easier than this.

Once installed, SpeedBit Video Downloader appeared as a toolbar at the top of Firefox and Internet Explorer. There are a few items here that aren't relevant or needed -- links to Amazon, a custom search tool, and a translation utility -- but we're almost willing to overlook these considering how much we like the program otherwise. To download a video, simply navigate to the content you want and then click the Download and Convert Video button. The program will quickly download the video as an FLV file; if you install the optional conversion tool, it will also convert it to the format of your choice, including MOV, WMV, AVI, and other popular formats. If you only want to capture the audio track from a video, the converter also has an MP3 option. We tried downloading content from several different sites and converted it to multiple different formats, encountering no problems. The program doesn't come with much in the way of documentation, but that's OK; it's virtually foolproof. Overall, we found SpeedBit Video Downloader to be a quick, easy way to download and convert video, and we recommend it.

SpeedBit Video Downloader installs and uninstalls without issues.

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

September 27, 2016  |  By iamjacky

2016-09-27 01:04:41  |  By iamjacky

 |  Version: SpeedBit Video Downloader 3.2

Pros

As I said previously, it is just too slow!!

Cons

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.

"Does what many expensive programs don't"

March 20, 2015  |  By Doc Jack

 |  Version: SpeedBit Video Downloader 3.2

Pros

Easy to use, quick, free

Cons

Limited conversion formats

Summary

Tried many expensive software programs.They didn't download many sites I visited. Couldn't "find" the video. SpeedBit had no problem finding them. This program is handy as a pocket on a shirt. Works right from the browser menu bar. And it's free. Couldn't ask for more.

Pros

I had worse programs but malware?

Cons

the same: Use it at your own risk

Summary

On every download you need an attorney to read the tricky stuff!
No way to trust the good guys without reading everything.
Bad programs are clever.
