Initiation options: This program gives you several ways to initiate a download. For instance, you can just copy and paste the URL of the desired video into the main interface window. You can also drag and drop a URL, or you can take advantage of the integrated browser button on Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome to start a download with just one click.
Simultaneous conversions: In addition to downloading files, you can also convert them quickly through this program. In fact, you can set a file to download and convert at the same time, so it's all ready to go for you when you need it. Available output formats include WMV, MOV, MP4, 3GP, AVI, FLV, and many more.
No multiples: You can only download one video at a time through this app, and while the process is completed quickly, that means you can't just set it up and let it run, if you want to download a bunch of videos at once. This may or may not be a significant drawback for you depending on how many files you typically download at a time.
FLV Downloader gives you plenty of downloading and conversion options in a streamlined package. It works quickly, and the only real drawback is that you can't initiate multiple downloads simultaneously.
