Editors' Review

Arc Soft Video Downloader helps users download movies directly to their computer, but there's a second step (and another program) if you want to watch your videos.

This freeware program is incredibly simple to use. Opening the program leads to a small rectangular screen with simple instructions for downloading a video. Little action is required on the part of the user. As soon as a video is viewed online, an ArcSoft icon appears with the ability to download the movie. Simply clicking on this icon initiates the process, and you can see the files for download on the program's small display.

This process was simple and effective. However, we didn't like the fact that the videos could not be viewed directly from this program. In order to watch their downloads, users must also download ArcSoft's Media Converter. Users are taken directly to its installation, which is very simple; we were just turned off by this slight detour. Otherwise, everything worked great in this free program and we highly recommend it for those looking to take Web-based video content and save it to their computer.
