Pros

They make the ads huge at the top of the page so you cannot miss them ;)

Cons

Makes your browser experience very painful.

Summary

Would have been a great program without the malicious ad scheme. Very disappointing.

"this is indeed a virus"

September 23, 2012  |  By evokatsura2

2012-09-23 18:52:10  |  By evokatsura2

 |  Version: VidSaver - Video Screen Saver 1.0.101

Pros

none. nothing good.

Cons

this is a virus, both Malwarebyte and AVG detected it, after it installed, it will start messing with your search engine and redirect most of searches to a harmful website, also it will force your browser to display many third party ads that are both annoying and contain harmful links.
following is one of the virus Malwarebyte will detect that relate to this software: vidsaver15_20120508.exe

Summary

don't download this software, there is easier way to download video without any software
such as: http://keepvid.com/ or any other website

this software is a virus, and cnet should really be flag it so other people will not get infected.

"Malwarebytes found it a virus source"

August 09, 2012  |  By ishkabidle

2012-08-09 11:43:43  |  By ishkabidle

 |  Version: VidSaver - Video Screen Saver 1.0.101

Pros

I never got around to using it.

Cons

A routine flash scan with an updated Malwarebytes showed vidsaver in the list of malware detected. To be sure I cleaned my system, scanned the installation file (reported clean), reinstalled vidsaver and ran the scan again. Malwarebytes again found something, adware. Use at your own risk.

Summary

Clean your system with a malware cleaner after installation.

"Awesome Screensaver"

April 02, 2002

2002-04-02 10:49:39

 |  Version: VidSaver - Video Screen Saver 1.0.101

Summary

This screensaver plays movies!!! It installs easy, set up is intuitive, and it works great. Now my computer plays a video of my favorite grandbaby when I'm away from my desk. I use it to play a company marketing video on my computer at work, so it sells when I'm away from my desk. This program is awesome!
