Editors' Review

Download managers can make it much easier to grab and save video from the Internet. There's a lot of them, both freeware and shareware; but then, there's a lot of video clips to download, and not just from YouTube but hundreds of other sites. Nuclear Coffee's VideoGet is shareware that's designed to make downloading video files and clips as easy as possible. While it's not much different from other tools of its type, it has enough options to satisfy a wide range of users. It's free to try with a 20-download limit.

VideoGet's setup wizard offered an unusual choice, at least in our experience: a check box to disable adult Web sites report. We had questions: is the "report" links or blocked sites? And what exactly is disabled? We left the box unchecked. After we allowed the program's IE and Firefox plug-ins, Firefox restarted with a new toolbar showing we had "2 Love Messages." Good thing we were using Chrome! We removed the toolbar from Firefox and closed it, but at least we had a clearer idea of what VideoGet is capable of. The program's user interface bears many similarities to other video downloaders, but there's only so many ways to change the layout and details without compromising functionality. We could toggle the Advanced Converting Options panel open and closed. The program's general Options include languages, themes, YouTube HD, and another chance to disable adult Web site support.

VideoGet is easy to use: just copy a URL to the Clipboard and press the program's Add button. The Add URL tool includes a drop-down list of hundreds of supported sites, many with racy names. Clicking the download button started things off, and we finished by playing our new video in our usual media player. The output selector offers many file types. The program has some useful features, like batch loading, and it converts videos to a lot of formats. Few of the many free alternatives offer its combination of features, which will appeal to a wide spectrum of tastes. We suggest you avoid the browser plug-ins and simply focus on VideoGet's capabilities, which aren't trial-limited.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of VideoGet 6.0.2.66.

"Works for some sites"

Pros

I was able to download videos from several popular websites. Program is quite easy to use.

Failed to download videos from a number of websites.

Summary

It works for some sites, but does not for others, so you'd better check it with the sites you need it for before buying.

"During trial catches every video on the website."

June 03, 2010  |  By ccbabie

 |  Version: VideoGet 4.0.2.56

Pros

Captures single video on website up to 5 times a day during trial.

Cons

During trial it will only allow 5 videos a day, but if you have ads going on it will capture those as well, and proclaim that you have had your 5 captures for the day.

Summary

Because of the 5 download limit I could not effectively evaluate this product and I will not spend a dime until I am completely sure it will download from one place in particular. I have used riptiger on another computer and it doesn't work on the one site I really wanted. Video get seems to do it, but it captures everything on the page, so I am not sure if it will work from the one website I really want it to.

Updated on Jun 3, 2010

I review the wrong video capture. The correct software I have not been able to use yet. Only seems to work with YouTube; other URLs I added it doesn't acknowledge, especially if it's Adobe flash player 10. As I said earlier I have not been able to evaluate properly.

Cons

The overall gui and interface could do a little cleanup.

Summary

GO BUY IT NOW AND YOU WONT REGRET IT, I KNOW I DIDNT!

"Doesn't do anything."

January 27, 2010  |  By ghosty191

 |  Version: VideoGet 4.0.2.55

Pros

Cute icon.

Cons

I can't get it to do anything, or maybe I just don't understand the operational properties, or just maybe it doesn't work with Windows 7.

Summary

Of all the times I tried to capture a video, it didn't seem to do anything. I uninstalled and reinstalled and installed the newer version. Nothing works.

"Four of Five is Generous"

December 03, 2009  |  By RR1K

 |  Version: VideoGet 4.0.2.53

Pros

- Some videos were downloaded while the application was taken for a test run.
- Peaceful downloader without any nagware or pop-up crappola.
- Easy to install/un-install.

Cons

- Can experience erratic operational behavior.
- Inconsistant download capabilities due to a moderate interface mechanism.
- Does not address cache or sockets level stream management.

Summary

For a friendly streaming video downloader that is as polite to the client as it is to the server this tool is a 4 star deal. Many like minded tools nag or pop-up junk all over your system or are simply a registry hack's nightmare. This DM for online video is definitely novice oriented in design and hopefully in concept. At the moment it presents a decent capacity to become a competent solution for such a requirement but, it still isn't what the power user wants to believe.

It's an honest effort worthy of praise but, know up front it is a starting point product and neads much refinement through ernest development. There are far worse tools in this arena so, I make take no hesitation in stating that I enjoyed it while I used it.

It is worth the four stars in my opinion due to the fact that the developer(s) aren't fool of themselves but, rather trying their hand at some serious dev concerning network resources accessibilty and raw management. Keep up the good work.
