Editors' review

YouTube seems to have become a way of life for many Internet users. The worldwide video-sharing network is among the most popular sites anywhere. VideoSlurp YouTube Downloader promises to let users save their favorite films to their hard drive and view them whenever they want.

This free program isn't much to look, but its performance makes up for that. A simple start-up screen explains the program and how to operate it in about four short paragraphs. From there, the tool is very intuitive. A row of icons along the top of the screen allows users to navigate the Internet and download. However, the most important area is the search box where users type in any topic, which lets VideoSlurp to automatically search YouTube for content. Once a video is located, simply click on the download icon at the top of the screen. A small status area at the bottom of the screen tells you what percentage of your video has been downloaded.

Once complete, videos are saved in the obscure FLV format. Most computers will not support this and won't let you watch your videos. It is a minor inconvenience to download the necessary tools to watch your content, but luckily VideoSlurp walks you through either downloading a converter to change FLV files or to get an FLV viewer for your movies. Overall, this is a neat download that YouTube lovers will get a lot of use from.

    "Cascade of randomly connected unknown web-servers.."

    November 28, 2011   |   By SergeTaran

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    nothing good

    Cons

    During installation BUNCHES of tricky istalled programs can infect your windows.

    Bad things start happening when you strt the program. Your firewall (I hope you have one!) gets simply crazy. The program contacts bunches of servers - you have no idea what it sends there.

    Summary

    Wild mixture of Adware and malware. Do NOT go there. THere is NO such a think as "free" on the internet. and you pay for this VideoSlurp YouTube a LOT with your computer fixes/maintenance/virus removal time and efforts.

    The MP3 is downloaded at 48kbps even though you select in the browser the highest quality.

    "Addware found: Searchbar.a.134"

    July 22, 2011   |   By cesarinternational

    Version: VideoSlurp YouTube Downloader 1.53

    Pros

    It is a program that downloads videos well and even saves the sound separatedly in mp3 format

    Cons

    This download (version 1.53) activated AVG Antivirus warning that it has adware. It says that it has the adware called Searchbar.a.134. That is very sad since the program is good. The downloaded file is called VSBROWSER-SETUP.EXE

    "Great for downloading audio from YouTube videos ++"

    May 29, 2011   |   By ajstockman

    Version: VideoSlurp YouTube Downloader 1.52

    Pros

    * Special purpose application - small number of operator choices = EASY
    * Save the video, or just an *.mp3 = PERFECT

    Cons

    * Needs enhancement for downloading a playlist without user intervention

    Summary

    For me, the best part about YouTube is the chance to catch some great live music. This application lets me save just the *.mp3 file for my use, instead of having a video that I can't actually burn to a CD and enjoy while driving.

    Application works as advertised. As for the person who had browser issues - not really sure how that was managed by them since the application launches independently of the web browser. I haven't looked into it, but it seems that if your default browser interferes with the tool, switch your default browser? I would not complain too heavily about a FREE application that will be used to download FREE media. Just sayin'
