Editors' Review

TubeMaster Plus seems like a good idea: find video and MP3 content, download it, and convert it to different formats. But the program's poorly thought-out interface and application instability will likely frustrate everyone but the most persevering.

TubeMaster Plus comes with numerous settings, such as an autostart feature, size restriction (helpful for excluding small downloads that are more likely to be advertisements), language, and browser monitoring. You can set the video codec to be used as well as the MP3 quality and default multimedia player. The program is organized into four tabs: Media Surf (a Web browser), Media Download and Conversion, Media Search, and MP3 Search. You either surf to a video or use the Media Search tool to look for videos among 80-plus sites. (You won't use MP3 Search to look for MP3s, because that function does not work.) Once a video has been found, the application will grab a video copy from the stream after you clicked the Start Media Capture button.

This took us a while to figure out, because clicking on the Tutorial button caused a crash that we had to Ctrl-Alt-Del away. A second attempt worked, taking us to a deeply ugly set of screenshots annotated to explain various fields and progress bars. Sadly, the tutorial covered only one user scenario, leaving us to ponder such questions as how to find our downloaded files and why TubeMaster Plus stops downloading after pre-roll video plays. At the end of the day, TubeMaster Plus is a good idea that suffers at the hands of poor execution and quality control.

"Excellent Program, Though Not 100% Functional"

February 22, 2010  |  By RickyWillems

 |  Version: TubeMaster++ 1.5

Pros

Great For Ripping Media Off Of Website
Good MP3 Encoding
Good Video Encoding

Cons

Media Search Function Doesn't Work Well/At All
Auto Song Tagging Doesnt Work Very Often

Summary

This is a great program overall, and my choice for ripping music off the internet. It has its problems, namely the poor tagging ability and the pointlessness of its internal media search function, but is otherwise great.
