Editors' Review

+

This download enables a video download add-on for your browser, but the bad news is it does so by altering your Windows Registry.

Video Download adds a tool to your Internet Explorer's context menu to simplify downloading from popular video Web sites. It couldn't be easier to operate; you simply click the Web page and select Download Video. A helper window pops up and searches the page code for the proper download link. A few seconds later, the download link appears in the helper box. You can then click the link to download as usual.

Your downloaded files are usually Flash files, and you'll need a separate viewer. Installing this utility is actually making a Registry change that adds a menu item to call code from a Web site. You can undo the change by removing the added Registry Key. Unlike many complicated utilities that attempt to download videos, this add-on is easy to use and helpful--and it works.

"Downloaded many video with it"

November 29, 2016  |  By Greenwald2sd

2016-11-29 21:51:06  |  By Greenwald2sd

 |  Version: Video Download 1

Pros

There are so many quality options provided and a whole list of profiles to change the output. That can meets the needs of many devices.

Cons

Doesn't work on my friends xp pc though.
Fail to download frequently, unstable.
I think AllYoutube2MP4 can do better. It's completely free and has all features this one does and even more.

"It is too complicated to use and super slow!!"

September 26, 2016  |  By iamjacky

 |  Version: Video Download 1

Pros

Well, at least I got a video downloaded after hours!!!

Cons

As I said previously, it is just too slow!!
Thus, I had to try the other applications, I really found that too many video downloader come with a buil-in browser. Well, I have to admit that it is convenient to preview videos sometimes. And I found a pretty cool video downloader which it is similar to this one, but much more fast than this one.
It is called vGuruSoft Video Downloader for Mac( I have recommended it to many people). I said this app is cool not only because it is very fast, but also it supports to seclect resolution and get subtitles.

 |  Version: Video Download 1

Cons

I use Windows XP...and this program just didn't work with my computer. I tried. I was patient. I wasted my time. The support was useless. I've deleted it. I'm still looking for a reliable program to use as a downloader.
