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.

"Bad Program!! Multiple ad ware and tracking programs"

May 28, 2014  |  By Kshields86

 |  Version: VDownloader 1.12

Pros

None, not happy with my installation

Cons

with the vdownloader came 4+ programs, messed up my browser, had trouble uninstalling programs, my Norton went crazy with threats and possible virus notifications. NOT A GOOD program

Summary

I looked up reviews before hand and everything looked good. But I did some further investigating after I had so many issues upon installation. You have to go to the 3rd or 4th page before you can see any negative reviews. Half of them when I clicked on took me to a link that said page no longer available.. once I was able to actually read some they all had terrible news and experienced the same thing I did. NOT a trust worthy program

"Easy to use, but incomplete and watch out hidden junk!"

March 21, 2010  |  By HOPMAHPNMNT

 |  Version: VDownloader 1.12

Pros

Download easily videos from YouTube. Will convert the video in a wide variety of formats. Search option is a nice feature.

Cons

Unlike stated, won't work for DailyMotion. Also, it is mandatory that you use personalized installation option during install otherwise you will end with spywares and other junk on your computer...

Summary

Don't forget to use the personalized installation option and uncheck all boxes for spywares and junk that it tries to install discretely...

I moderately recommend this software but it's the only one of that category that I know: there are probably better ones.

"I got the Trojan too!!"

March 21, 2010  |  By Daris4u

 |  Version: VDownloader 1.12

Pros

It downloads good, but there is a Hidden Trojan with it

Cons

"Trojan Clicker" eBay Program files

Summary

Your Anti virus and most won't find Trojan Clicker...I tried them all only thing that finds it is Malwarebytes anti malware.. I. have Spybot and SuperAnti Spyware and Use Avast 5...It is in your program files and is under eBay.. It will make your Browser look Black and redirects to it's own sites...Good luck

"Hidden Trojan inside this program"

March 11, 2010  |  By bob1881

 |  Version: VDownloader 1.12

Pros

-simple and easy to use
-works well. I use it to convert videos to 3GPP to use on my mobile and the quality and sound is good

Cons

-hidden trojan inside the install, hopefully your anti-virus or spyware program can detected and take care of it.

Summary

I just downloaded it a few minutes ago, installed it, and right before installation was done my anti-virus program caught the program trying to install a trojan. I read the file name and it had the name ebay on it. Yes, the program is free, but it is not really free if it is going to try to install some sort of spyware on your computer. That is pretty messed up! Good thing my anti-virus detected it. I use Avira Ant-virus, by the way, which you can download for free right from this site. After that I tried the program and it worked well.

Now that you know that the installation has a trojan in it, it is up to you. I give the program 2 stars because of the trojan. Otherwise, I would have given it 4 stars.

March 06, 2010  |  By ArmoredSoul

 |  Version: VDownloader 1.12

Pros

Haven't a clue, damn thing won't open.

Cons

WON'T DOWNLOAD. TROJAN.

Summary

I had this program recommended to me by a good friend of mine and it's been working great for her, but the moment I try to download it, my security software blocks it and refuses to let me reattempt because it says there's a Trojan in it.
If anyone gets around to fixing this, drop me a line, I am really fecking tired of this.
