iVideo Converter & Downloader

CNET Editors' review

iVideo Converter and Downloader is a program for downloading your favorite videos and audio, and converting it to supported formats.

This converter/downloader is an interesting program to have on hand. It has a lot of features including Watch TV, Radio, Games, and Chat tabs. Its main feature, Music and Video, work well and fast. The time per file will vary, depending on the length of the video or file size, but it usually takes somewhere within the time length of the actual video to finish downloading and/or converting. There are a number of format options like MP3, M4A, ACC, WAV, and more for audio. For video, there are formats to work with Windows, iPhones, PSP, and Flash Player. You can also change the video size and quality. As for the extra, unexpected features (TV, Radio, Games, and Chat), they were fun to browse around. They offer a lot of entertainment, though not all of the channels or stations work on Watch TV or Radio. We couldn't get any local channels, but it was interesting to see a few foreign channels. Also, Chat isn't our favorite feature since it doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment.

It didn't take very long to download this; however, there were some toolbar and application download offers in the installation steps that would have been installed if we hadn't been paying attention and just clicked through quickly. If you watch out for that, you won't find yourself having to remove them later.

    "Very Solid YouTube Downloader and MP3 Video Converter."

    March 1, 2014  |   By marnie487

    Version: iVideo Converter & Downloader 4.0

    Pros

    Glad I found iVideo Converter. IT is SO easy to search for any song or video. You can preview any file before downloading, then with a button click you can download any video as a MP3 or MP4 in less than 30 seconds. I can highly recommend this software. It is simply the best video converter I have ever used. Thank you iVideo Converter.

    Cons

    None really, but one limiting factor for others might be that the software runs on Java and only works with Windows computers.

    "Again I found that download.com is not reliable."

    February 6, 2014  |   By theovincken

    Version: iVideo Converter & Downloader 4.0

    Pros

    Very, very strange that download.com has this bad malware on the website.

    Cons

    The worst program I ever saw. With the download came conduit engine and that is one of the worst malwares that you can get in your computer. I am lucky that I know how to remove it but it's very strange that the editors rating for this program is 5 stars??????? My only conclusion can be that download.com is a bad and unreliable website.

    Summary

    One star is too much. Zero stars!

    "Useless crap bundled with malicious programs"

    January 20, 2014  |   By Throwaway10010110

    Version: iVideo Converter & Downloader 4.0

    Pros

    It doesn't use standard controls, so you have to **** around for awhile before you can do anything at all.

    Ohwait, that was supposed to be a negative.

    Cons

    Bundled with crap that is hard to remove, changes settings in your installed browsers.

    Doesn't convert anything at all, instead it just moves files around and changes their filenames. It doesn't even move files to where you want them, instead they're all stored in your music folder (why? Why not the movies folder? Atleast that would make a little bit of sense).

    The program often crashes and needs to ended through task manager.

    The program is slow, even though it's not doing anything.

    Summary

    Do. Not. Download.

    "Alert - Coupon Alerts"

    December 24, 2013  |   By groovygav

    Version: iVideo Converter & Downloader 4.0

    Pros

    Successfully converted a video file.

    Cons

    Installed Coupon Alerts malware to my laptop.

    Summary

    I'm usually quite careful when installing software, but somehow this setup program managed to get the Coupon Alerts extension installed into Chrome "by enterprise policy" and no amount of anti-malware scans from various programs were able to dislodge it. Uninstalling iVideo and Chrome, removing all traces of Chrome and "coupon" in the registry and on the hard drive were all useless. Eventually I was able to remove it by running a system restore, but I certainly won't be going near this software again.

    October 20, 2013  |   By Julio Bro!

    Version: iVideo Converter & Downloader 4.0

    Pros

    Seems simple.

    Cons

    Didn't go as expected.

    Summary

    Already said explain why it's bad.

    I'll say that, even though is a little more complicated, Orbit grabs anything, and that's what you want, right?

    Version: iVideo Converter & Downloader 4.0

    Pros

    None. Couldn't do anything after installing.

    Program wouldn't open. Even reinstalled with same effect. Bummer--the reviews looked so promising...

    Summary

    Try it but be careful during install because it'll install some additional browsers and search engines.
