    "Videobox is a flawless & efficient video converter"

    July 15, 2008  |   By 2qrs

    Version: Videobox 2.7.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I discovered the original FLVR App when I was searching for an application to convert some flash files that I wanted to add to a DVD project. I had literally tried dozens of applications and nothing would convert these particular files to the format I needed.

    I was actually shocked when my first conversion attempt with FLVR downloaded the flash files from Youtube & converted them to quicktime files flawlessly. It did this in the background without the issues that I had encountered with every other converter.

    Videobox is the latest incarnation of this amazing application. Like the original App, It still has a safari plugin that allows you to download, rename & convert right within the browser. But, it is also a stand alone converter with URL drag & drop functionality making it is the easiest & most reliable application for grabbing & converting web based video on the fly regardless of your browser. And because it is a stand alone application, you can also convert media that is not web based...e.g. a clip a friend sends you as an e-mail attachment.

    The preferences allow you to customize quality of your output & supports mov, mpeg, mp4, raw, avi, wmv, and flv formats. There is also an automatic import into itunes function, which makes grabbing video from sites like youtube to watch later on your ipod seamless. You can grab, convert & add with a push of the button.

    Videobox is a fast, flawless & customizable video converter that works every time. It not only converts media into the format you want, but does so with little or no loss of quality.

    Download the Demo, give it a try and you will see that it is "Must Have" application for anyone who works with video or collects web based content.

    I downloaded to use on a random (and I mean random) FOX affiliate, and sure enough, it found the video, downloaded and converted it like a charm.

    Couldn't have been easier.

    "User since called FLVR - super utility"

    April 28, 2008  |   By grahamburnette

    Version: Videobox 2.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have been using this program for a long time. When I started using it, it was called FLVR. This is exactly what I want in a utility - software that does exactly what I want, does it quickly and easily, and does not muck up my mac with lots of stuff I don't care about.

    In addition - my experience with interacting with the company has been very positive. They promptly respond to my questions.

    "Videobox 2.6 rocks!"

    Version: Videobox 2.6

    Summary

    A must have for your personal toolbox. Videobox 2.6 is fast, easy, reliable, and a free upgrade since I was an FLVR customer.

    I use Videobox 2.6, Leopard 10.5.2, and Safari Version 3.1 (5525.13) very heavily and I have been able to record flash video from every site I had or wanted to.

    Yes, they were heard to get a hold of for a while but it's back to business as usual; well made, useful, and nominally priced software. And from my personal experience, fully engaged and caring customer service. Thanks, Tim.

    You need to record flash video? Get Videobox.

    Great idea, too bad it does not work.

    Try it on this site and you will see that it does not work:

    Can anyone suggest a utility that captures Flash videos from websites?

    "A real quality product"

    March 19, 2008  |   By sng40

    Version: Videobox 2.5.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Have been using it a lot with mpeg4 out and next-to-highest quality, auto send to iTunes. Works GREAT. NICE, NICE, NICE!!! I cannot seem to add a title to a download that will stick with it all the way to the mp4 stage, but that is easily remedied manually after the fact. Nice that iTunes can put it on my iPhone as well. This is a real quality product! Needs some illustrated instructions, however, as the many output options can be daunting. Developer support is OUTSTANDING; documentation, so far, is absent. Therefore I rated it neutral on Support/Documentation. Yes, price increased to $15. I should have bought it for $8 when I first downloaded it. --Steve

    I love TastyApps stuff but they GOTTA work on the quality of video on Videobox. It's all blocky and nowhere near as good as the original Flash Video

    "Simple, yet elegant..."

    Version: Videobox 2.4.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'd have to agree. This is the easiest solution yet. Even as a beta, it is stable, and works with any site that I have tried thus far. In a nutshell, it works! In addition, the response from the developers have been top notch as they have been responsive an answer all my questions and take in the feedback that I have given them for the beta. Good tool, good price. Highly recommend.
