Videobox is great for downloading movies of all types, personally I find it pretty much works wherever which is what I wanted when I first found out I'd have to pay for the app.
I initially wanted the app because I had to download some more...

Videobox is great for downloading movies of all types, personally I find it pretty much works wherever which is what I wanted when I first found out I'd have to pay for the app.
I initially wanted the app because I had to download some videos from my tutors Web site, as the feature was not available. It was perfect for this and I was able to trust the app to do its job.
Overall fantastic app keep up the good work.........

Slight downshift. I note that on a page with a single target, Videobox is great. However, on pages with more than one target -- an animated GIF, a link to something else happening, a hit-measuring device, an ad -- Videobox starts processing the main video (the one I want), but then gets "distracted" by the other stuff and runs the gamut. Then it analyses and analyses and usually comes up empty. The algorithms must be all wrong.

I don't recall this as a behavior in the past, only when the last two versions of Videobox became available. It's very unfortunate that this "improvement" is actually degrading use.

Hi Bob, thansk for your continued feedback. The videobox engine does get stuck in some pages where something else is happening,as you say. This is an old problem... that we are currently fixing. Expect a quickest "stop" algorithm (and some cool new video download capabilities) for 4.0.7. Regards, Alberto

Very nice app with good browser integration. Press the button in the browser and the Flash content of the page is passed to the Videobox app. Video conversion to real video formats is pretty quick and error-free.

The interface is a little confusing at first, but after the first time or two, it's not a problem.

My only complaint is that if several conversions are queued from the same web server (so that the files have the same names), the Save operation doesn't automatically create name, name-1, name-2 files. Instead it just overwrites each file so you only end up with the last converted file. So, the Convert All function is iffy; manual intervention is required to avoid overwriting output files.

Apart from that, Videobox allowed me to make local copies of course videos that were Flash-streaming-only. Exactly what I wanted.

Hi, thanks for the review! We will make sure to avoid the "overwrite" problem in 4.0.7. Thanks, Alberto.

This program is amazing!!! Best yet. The only thing that bothers me is the inability to pause a session and resume. I often get stuck in the middle of a conversion and have to start over later. Maybe I'm missing something but this would be a five star review across the board if not for that feature.

Thanks, Brick Price

Hi Brick, thanks for your comment. That would indeed be a great feature... We will keep it in mind for 4.1.0. Thanks!

For some reason I couldn't enter a 5 for every field. Weird.

Attention downloaders of videos!

If you need the ONE app that could save you hundreds of hours of frustration then you've found it.

Not only does this app do exactly what it promises (unlike so many other apps out there) but their customer support is top notch.

Recently I had a challenge when transferring licenses from computer to computer. The Tastyapps team went way over the call of duty to help me out.

In and doing so I found out about Websnapper. Something that had totally eluded me to date (And I do web sites from time to time! DUH!) its a total non brainer.

I'm a real customer and not someone they found off Fiverr and I wanted them to know how much I appreciated their server.

And now I need to get back to downloading some more vids.

p.s. Thanks guys for helping me out with your support, Your app(s) truly are great!

4.06 Service aside, the new download fails. Browser goes directly to devs web site and spins endlessly with 'Analyzing'... dragndrop linking doesnt resolve or change this, pasting URL doesn't change it. Registered user...

Hi Mac, we have found that the untimely upgrade of Flash Player by adobe has been causing some troubles to some of our users. This is not related to videobox at all, but a bug of Flash player 13 in some OS X versions... We recommend that you downgrade to Flash 12 while adobe cleans up the house... see if this helps.

4.02 Broke the icon-app boot feature in Safari 6.1.2. Version 4.0.3 broke the icon button auto address link to the app. Version 4.0.4 broke continued the latest incompatibility trend (OS X 10.8.6 on a 3.4 GHz i7, Thunderbolt 27" iMac with 16GB RAM). Version 4.0.5 only recognizes about 60% of the Flash movies even when I manually boot, manually paste in a web address and repeatedly hit the play and page update icon.

This (once) indispensable app is rapidly becoming the latest greatest Flash downloading app. Let's hope they start working in some backwards compatibility? 1 star off because hope springs eternal. : )

Hi Dorian, we are a bit confused with your comment. Videobox works in 10.6 and above, and we make sure it does in all releases. We did discontinue Leopard a while ago. And the icon-app boot features and all the other buttons are fixed in 4.0.5, which also includes loads of new sites, so it is clearly working better than ever... Let us know if you are having problems, we will try to help.

Nailed it. The new version of Videobox is amazingly fast, finds exactly the running vid that I want to capture, does away with the "phantom sound," and is rugged. The developers are right, they really came through with Videobox. Nothing compares with it for Flash-based video capture. Perfect.

I have to view quite a number of Youtube videos repeatedly in my work and besides having to wait for the download, this eats up my 'Fair Access Policy' with regard to my Satellite server. The Videobox is such a streamlined app and so easy to use I cannot imagine anything better. I'm very happy with the app and also the response from the company when I had a question with regard to the extension for Safari, they came back the same day with clear advice and I made the adjustments suggested within Preferences. I was so impressed I also purchased the license for the Musicbox because they work so well. The Ease of Use should be a 5, but I don't seem to be able to change the rating. Apologies to the developers because this App deserves 5 stars throughout.

Version 3.9.9 still crashes (or rather freezes) frequently on OS 10.6.8, and yes, I have downloaded the new version of the Safari extension.

Version 4.0.4 is stable from 10.6 up and no longer freezes. Thanks for your patience!

I kicked my rating up a star (to 4) based on stability of the current version (4.0.4) and also improved radar (or so it seems) for detecting preferred downloadable content to advertising. I still hear audio occasionally. It ends when the download ends or I download another item. Turning off Sound (F10) solves the problem if you don't mind downloading in silence, which is fine for me.
