Editors' Review

VidBas for Mac allows users to download videos from the Web to view them later while offline, so it may be useful to some Mac owners despite the lack of additional features.

VidBas for Mac comes with a free trial version that restricts the ability to download from the Internet. The complete version requires a $19.99 payment to unlock. The download completed quickly, as did the installation despite the lack of a native installer. Through the program's support menu, user instructions and technical support for updates were present. The main menu was easy to use, but had little in the way of graphics. Users can select whether to save Internet movies as video, audio, or audio and video. The automatic capture from the Web can also be turned on and off as needed, which is a welcome feature to keep the program from saving things like ad videos. Despite the free version's usage limitations, the program captured Web video well and without requiring any user input. Double clicking on the saved video icon takes the user to the save location, which can be modified from the preferences menu. The output video matched the original, even when testing those streamed in HD quality, which was a good feature.

For those looking to capture Internet videos, VidBas for Mac is a basic program that performs well, making it a useful option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of VidBas for Mac 3.1.1.
