Video Converter Fox

CNET Editors' review

Video Converter Fox bundles together a bunch of audio, video, and online resources into a single interface. It searches for and downloads MP3s and videos on YouTube, for starters, and even converts FLV files to MP3s, so you can save the tunes you find and play them on your portable device. It has a built-in Internet radio player, but it also plays your locally-stored media files. You can watch free online TV channels from dozens of countries, including free online movies. You can play all kinds of games while you're listening, too. And Video Converter Fox even has a built-in video chat app. Though Video Converter Fox is freeware, the "Pro" version isn't, and the distinction between versions (and another tool) isn't totally clear.

Video Converter Fox's user interface is as busy as the day before Christmas, but the dark-gray tones and separate tabs for each tool help to keep things organized, and you can change the look by clicking Skins on the menu bar. Though it packs a lot of stuff, Video Converter Fox is mostly about one thing: searching, downloading, and saving tunes on the world's biggest jukebox, YouTube, where the quantity more than makes up for the audio quality (or lack thereof). We searched for a song, and Video Converter Fox quickly located, downloaded, and saved it in our format of choice. How did our saved and converted file compare to streaming HD and analog vinyl versions of the very same tune? Better than we expected. As a way to hear new music, it works for us. The Net radio tool embeds Radio-Locator, which we use anyway. The games are exactly what you'd expect: simple and fun, Java-based time-wasters, with something for every taste. We didn't try the chat app, though Video Converter Fox offers plenty of other social media links.

If Video Converter Fox looks a lot like another program, ZiggyTV, that may be because the folks behind ZiggyTV are also behind Video Converter Fox and, as near as we can tell, the two programs are virtually identical except in name. And like ZiggyTV, Video Converter Fox's chief recommendation is its all-in-one nature.

    "It downloads stuff"

    January 11, 2014  |   By Chaotic_Sarge

    Version: Video Converter Fox 4.1

    Pros

    Been using this for about a year or 2 and haven't had any problems simple easy.

    Cons

    From time to time the sound quality is a bit worse or just a lot quitter and I wish there where more back ground options. I only use this for music so I can't say for video

    Summary

    Totally 100% behind this for music downloading simple to use, mostly fast downloads great program... I don't know what that guy was talking about saying it isn't free and its a con... its really not its totally free.

    "Some Degrading of Video Quality"

    November 13, 2012  |   By JeffreyE

    Version: Video Converter Fox 4.1

    Pros

    1. Simple to Use
    2. Free
    3. It Works
    4. Can choose between full video or audio only

    Cons

    Noticeably degraded video quality

    Summary

    Easy to download, install and use. First download attempt seemed to default to audio only. Just took a couple of minutes to choose full video, so no big deal. I've only downloaded one YouTube video, and found a fairly substantial loss of video quality. The original video was only 320p, so its quite noticeable on a full screen playback with a 23" monitor. I will see if I can tweak controls to get better results, and report back

    "I love Video Converter Fox"

    August 27, 2012  |   By tresha697

    Version: Video Converter Fox 4.1

    Pros

    I used to use FreeFox this looks to be the new upgraded version of the software. What happen to FreeFox? I like the new YouTube download feature and the ability to download to multiple video and music formats. Keep up the good work.

    Cons

    I don't like the dark default colors. I always change my background to a lighter color it is easier on my eyes.
