    "East To Use - Does What It Says"

    October 20, 2007  |   By RotoRooterGuy


    This is a GREAT program. I like it because it is literally two to three clicks and you are playing downloaded videos on your PC or mobile phone.

    The user interface is so intuitive that one does not need to even read instructions before playing or experimenting with it. I installed the program, opened it, pasted a YouTube URL [address] into the box, said to download and convert, and voilĂ , I was playing a video on my PC.

    Now as to details:

    The install went without incident. Like you should do on any program, even if it does not say to do so, I rebooted my PC.

    With a freshly booted machine I opened the program. I saw that there was a place to designate "where" to save the downloaded/converted videos. I chose what I always do, so I can find files later, I said to save files to my Windows Desktop.

    I saw a box that said where to paste or insert the URL for the video I wanted to download. So I opened YouTube, copied the URL for that video, pasted it into the VideoGet box and pressed the "download" icon.

    VideoGet downloaded the video and automatically converted the video into the format I chose. I went to my Desktop, double clicked the video, and my media player opened the file and played it perfectly.

    I then went to MySpace to see if it would do the same. It worked fine on that site too.

    I went to the Site and snooped around. Looks professional enough to where I think the Company will be around for a time which is important because software sites like VideoGet need to always be updating their programs so to keep up with the changes on YouTube, etc.

    By the way, if you have install problems or the program does not work right, I have to say it must be your PC that is messing up. I say this because I have ZoneAlarm firewall and anti-virus programs running and have lots of other programs running too. If VideoGet installed and works on my PC I gotta say that it should work on other computers too.


    This is not a serious concern, but nowadays the BlackBerry Pearl and Curve smartphones play video. The Curve even plays in full screen mode [which is awesome, by the way]. It would nice to see added to the list of formats a "Curve Full Screen" conversion format.
