Editors' Review

+

Despite the lack of user guidance, this video-file downloader is easy to set up and use. VDownloader's interface is on the plain side and no Help file is offered, but it shouldn't take most users long to get the hang of downloading videos from their favorite sites.

The interface contains four large icons: Download, Search, Browser, and Settings. By default, VDownloader is set to monitor the clipboard when it's running, so as soon as we copied the link to a video, the program responded and asked us for Save As information. It's a small thing, but some programs don't allow you to choose a file name up front and it can be hard (without opening each file) to know what video you've downloaded if the file name is auto-assigned. The download began immediately after choosing the file name and location. You also can change this setting and manually paste a video link in to the URL field, but we preferred the time-saving clipboard monitoring step. VDownloader also lets you select the format you want to save video files in, another nice touch. Options include AVI, MP3, iPhone/iPod compatibility, and the original format.

The free program includes two useful extras. The first is the Search capability, which allows you to enter a video name and simultaneously search YouTube, Daily Motion, Google, and Yahoo Video. You can uncheck any of the four sites, but you aren't allowed to add any extras. The second extra is a built-in browser, which doesn't have any of the niceties you'll find in Firefox or Internet Explorer, but does include more than 20 bookmarks to video sites and a quick Download Video button for when you find a file you want to save. We recommend this free, easy-to-use video file downloader for any user.

"Wonderful app fullfills a great need for my purposes."

March 11, 2009  |  By papashakka

 |  Version: VDownloader 0.77

Pros

Fast no nonsence easy to use. I love the "encode video option" which addresses the files on my hard drive. Intuitive.

Cons

No manual.

Summary

Bottom line is for a person not well versed in computor apps such as myself, will find its ease of use and how quickly it completes its task beneficial in retrival of videos without constant supervision. This helps especially for research requireing one to go through alot of video evidence from the internet.

"Terrible quality downloads"

March 10, 2009  |  By spartain

 |  Version: VDownloader 0.77

Pros

Simple interface

Cons

Downloaded video quality is poor. Junk

Summary

Very easy principle of pasting url of video into program and downloading. However, the downloaded video quality is very poor, worse than the quality of watching it on the Youtube site! This is not so perceivable in small window, but is obvious when watching in full screen mode.

I tried saving in original flv format, supposedy not converted. However, it was worse than watching it on the website! I tried downloading and using the automatic conversion to AVI 640x480 feature. The picture quality here was acceptably close to the website quality, but the trouble is that the sound was completely out of sync with the picture AND the movie kept jumping where frames had gone missing!

The developers should really have finished this properly before wasting people's time. I realise that other reviewers have given it good points, but I bet they are not checking the detail in full quality. A load of rubbish. Needs to do much better.

"The best thing since sliced bread for me!"

March 03, 2009  |  By Hinata1927

Pros

I love the fact it's so simple to use and that you can get music quickly off YouTube and not just get a video, but convert it to an MP3 and listen to it and use it on your own videos!

Cons

There's nothing wrong with VDownloader! It's the best!

Summary

I can get music quickly from YouTube and various other sites without confusing myself too easily and it's fast to download and I just love it :D

"Best Flash grabber I've seen and then some"

February 24, 2009  |  By Lucky_E

 |  Version: VDownloader 0.77

Pros

Ability to download and convert to various video formats or MP3 on the fly, all by just copying of the video's URL. Performed better than FlashGot, Fast Video Downloader or other web browser's flash grabber program.

Cons

None, too easy to figure out.

Summary

Program is definitely a keeper. If YouTube is blocking the download of your flash video then this is the program to use!

I didn't need directions, it can download up to 10 videos at once, it is just plain easy & does a great job!

Cons

So far, I haven't found anything I don't like about it & I compared it to 3 other programs.

Summary

To date, this is the best! It couldn't be easier or work better in my book!
