Editors' Review

Sothink Web Video Downloader is a versatile and customizable program that gives you the ability to download your favorite videos with ease. Through browser integration, this program provides a quick-download option that makes downloading videos as convenient as possible.

Pros

Highly customizable: This app provides multiple options for choosing which browsers you want it to monitor and which types of files you'd like to download. That means that you don't have to deal with the download buttons when you don't want to, and you can adjust these settings at any time.

Cons

Failure to capture: During testing, the program failed to capture videos in both Chrome and Internet Explorer even though both were selected in the Menu. Other browsers worked with no issues.

No manual option: There is no option in this program to manually enter the URLs you want to download videos from. So if the automatic download feature isn't working for some reason, the program is essentially useless.

Bottom Line

Sothink Web Video Downloader has a nice interface and is convenient when it works. You can try it out for free for 30 days to see if it's the right program for you, and it's $19.99 if you do decide to buy it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sothink Web Video Downloader 2.5.
