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.

"Cannot uninstall !"

November 26, 2012  |  By DennisTheCnet

 |  Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1327

Pros

I really can't say. I've been working with PC software for 20 years and I can't get the screen audio/video recording to work.

Cons

RE: Windows 7 SP 1

I couldn't get Profiles to save and reload. When trying to do a screen capture, the target area would decrease resolution and I lost part of the window's view.

When I attempted the standard uninstall from the Control Panel, the program was deleted from the list but it was not uninstalled. I could still run it from the program's folder. Also, when I used the uninstall in the program's folder, it would hang the system until I closed the WINDOWS Explorer window.

Summary

BE CAREFUL ! Oh, and as for the additional "stuff" installed, if you read the installation instructions carefully, you can avoid them.

"This thing is AWESOME!"

September 25, 2012  |  By lockerridge

 |  Version: aTube Catcher 2.9.1327

Pros

You get three separate ways to download.. and all of them work great!!

Cons

None that I can see!

Summary

This is a fantastic tool that is free of charge to us. I have McAfee on my computer and scanned this before I opened it up. Always save your new installs to you desktop and scan then before you open them up! McAfee has no problem with this software.
You have to really pay attention when you are installing the program as it offers you several different things to install or sign you up for as you click the necessary buttons to install it. But if you will simply read the statement you have to accept before you can even try to install it on you pc.. it tells you plainly it is all in there and how to avoid getting it put on your computer.
YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT YOU INSTALL ON YOUR PC SOMETIMES FOLKS! TAKE YOUR TIME AND READ WHAT YOUR CLICKING TO ACCEPT PEOPLE! THIS IS A FREE SOFTWARE, AND YES, THEY WILL TRY TO SELL US SOMETHING FROM THEIR SPONSORS IF THEY CAN!
