Editors' Review

+

If you generally skip to the back of a review to read the results, we'll save you the trouble and state up front that aTube Catcher is the YouTube downloader to get. Not just because it's one of the few free and non-ad-supported tools of its kind, though that ought to be enough because it means it's not ad-linked and can download videos from lots of other Web sites, too, including Google, Dailymotion, Yahoo, Comedy Central, Spike, and many others. But aTube Catcher is actually a video toolkit packing many free tools such as DVD/Blu-Ray/CD Creator, DA DVD Ripper, Video & Audio Crop Tool, Queue Manager, Screen Record, Audio Recorder, and others. Some are built in while others require free downloads but integrate fully with aTube Catcher. This program also creates animated GIFs, Audio CDs, ringtones, and MP3s. It captures video streams, converts and merges videos, and erases rewriteable disks, too.

Neat, clean, and compact sums up aTube Catcher's dialog-size user interface, which opens on the Normal mode tab. This is the program's main tool, its video downloader. It's a lot like the others, with some notable (and welcome) exceptions, such as the Enable YouTube HD check box. Better yet, an Output Profile drop-down list offers dozens of different devices and formats, everything from AVI to Zune. It also offers No Conversion, NTSC and PAL TV formats, animated GIF, HD, and lots of other interesting choices. The other tabs access the program's other capable, no-nonsense tools: Stream Catcher, Screen Record, Video Converter, and more. As if that weren't enough, clicking the Tools menu revealed still more utilities as well as the General Settings, Cache, Language, and YouTube options. Add a Video Search Tool and MP3 Downloader to the tool list, incidentally.

Does it seem like aTube Catcher offers a bit too much? Nonsense! Just click Help on the toolbar. This program has one of the longest Help menus we've seen, including the Web-based Manual that opened as soon as our installation completed, as well as links to download codecs, WinpCap, and an Encoder Version. If you skipped to the end, we'll say it again: just get it.

"awesome!!!"

September 21, 2012  |  By sandwichx

 |  Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1324

Pros

I've tried dozens of programs and this one is the best.

The screen capture feature is cool for videos you can't grab any other way. With my setup I have to run the line out back into the line in for sound but it works (for the screen capture).

Cons

can't think of any

"Really good"

August 22, 2012  |  By DownloadUser101

 |  Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1324

Pros

You can convert to pretty much any format.
Grab streaming video.
Download videos for later.
Just download the mp3 of the video, etc.
Record the screen or selected area.
Comes with a mp3 downloader that allows you to get about any mp3 you want.

Cons

Whenever there's an update it doesn't remember your settings, like what folder you want the downloaded file to go to, and you have to set that again.
The screen after download a file has an check box option that allows you to never see it again, but it doesn't work.
No major problems.

"AWESOME and I have tried soooo many!"

August 16, 2012  |  By davey4567890

 |  Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1324

Pros

Fastest downloader I have tried

No malware or added crap if you un-check the boxes.

I used this a while back and loved it, tried others on a new computer and one called "Free youtube downloader" was a nightmare.

This one is awesome. 10 stars after my bad experience

Cons

No cons I can think of.

Summary

This one is great!

NEVER EVER EVER download the one called free youtube downloader. It will destroy your computer even if you un-check the boxes.:(
