"A disappointment"

June 21, 2013  |  By dcgroce

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It does download video of commercials.

Cons

It puts itself on the start up, is an annoyance that way. Also, continually pops up dialogue box and asks if I want to update. Doesn't download the video you're wanting, just the commercial that precedes it.

Summary

Great if you want the videos of short commercial clips. Inadequate if you want to download the video for which you searched.

"Malware! Hijacks your homepage and search engine"

April 24, 2013  |  By Super Neutrino

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None. This thing is total junk!

Cons

Thing sneakily installs various unwanted and intrusive plugins for your browser, changes your default browser to some pathetic app they wrote and hijacks your homepage and search engine. You can't even change the homepage by going to setting, because they've somehow used administrative setting to block me from changing the homepage on my own computer, which I have admin privileges on. I can't believe how sly these people are. I'm stilling googling and trying to figure how to undo the damage these people have done.

Summary

This is borderline malware, DO NOT Install! I can't believe CNET would allow this thing on their website. I trusted CNET to filter out malicious software like this.

"WARNING this software has malware"

March 30, 2013  |  By WizardOfToys

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

none unless you like your Internet Explorer settings hijacked in a way that you can't change back to your preferences.

Cons

Malware. Changed my home page in Internet Explorer and won't let me change it back. Worked great until the update a couple of days ago and now it's MALWARE CITY.

Summary

This program should be banned from cnet. They have changed the software and is now malware.

"A Possible Threat To Your Privacy"

November 13, 2012  |  By Taras_Bulba

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

The features list looks great, but I did not get a chance to try it in practice.

Cons

If you are vigilant you can avoid installing unwanted toolbars by un-ticking boxes during setup, but the major objection to this application is the necessity of installing WinPcap at the same time. I cannot understand why a network analysis tool is necessary to download videos, and I suspect that it may be used to send information about the users downloads to advertisers. I declined to install it when prompted, and I found that the Video Download Toolbar wold not function as a consequence.

Summary

From the features list it looks like one of the best video downloaders out there, but if you value your privacy I would not install it if I were you.

Updated on Nov 19, 2012

I may be wrong about Video Download Toolbar. When I encountered a setup program for WinPcap I was suspicious about the purpose of packet sniffing software being used in conjunction with the main application. This could have been due to my ignorance about how video downloading technology works. I have since encountered an application called Coojah which explicitly analysis your computer's network traffic in order to identify the URL of video streams. Therefor WinPcap may have a legitimate function in conjuction with the Video Download Toolbar.

I did express my suspicions in the message I sent when redirected to a webpage where you could give your reasons for uninstalling it, but after reading their privacy policy I gave them a false email address . If this application works as advertised it would be one of the best video downloaders out there, which makes me wonder why it is free. Perhaps they get a payment every time someone inadvertently installs one of the spyware toolbars.
