Jaksta Media Recorder for Mac offers a one-stop shop for recording and downloading media files from your favorite Web sites to your Mac. The program pairs easy-to-use controls with functionality. The trial version only successfully downloads YouTube videos, but it does so with speed and no hiccups.

Jaksta Media Recorder for Mac doesn't require any setup and the program is ready to run from the start. Upon startup the user is prompted to enter the registration code, purchase the full version, or continue in demo mode. The layout is very straightforward, but has a quality feel to it. Few buttons make the program easy to operate. Simply drag a button in the lower-right corner to the ON position, and any media file you play on the Internet will convert and download to your computer. The option of having items automatically added to your iTunes is particularly nice. The program successfully and quickly converts any MP3 that is played, too. While on YouTube, the application prompts the user that the stream is added as soon as you start playing the video. It also prompts when the conversion is finished. The conversion options are extensive and include file types that are compatible with virtually every major media player. During testing we had problems with certain videos that would produce an error when downloading, but this was probably due to restrictions we had in the trial version.

Jaksta Media Recorder for Mac would be a great application for those wanting to easily download MP3 files off of sites like SoundCloud and videos from sites such as YouTube and Vimeo. It's suitable for any user.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Jaksta Media Recorder for Mac 1.2.11.
