Youtube made changes recently that makes this application worthless. Don't know if there are any fixes out there, but it currently doesn't work.

Worked fine for me. I used it in demo mode. There is a timer, but then it works fine. Did not have experience of previous reviewers but I've only tried it once or twice. Perhaps I have a limited number of trial runs.

Geoprof, you're lucky. I can't even get the damned thing to launch!

Double-click to launch it, and yes ok it does "launch" by tossing up an alert "Prevent software piracy and please register..." Click ok to dismiss this message and the app quits!

Absolute rubbish!

YouTube Video Grabber 2.5 is a real dog. I tried to convert some 17 MB to 24 MB .flv movies with it and all it did was crunch my CPU at 80-85% for 70 minutes, and when I finally force-quit it the .mov file it created weighed in at zero KB. The same videos converted without issue using xVideoSeviceThief, iTubeX, etc. Junk.

Copying a URL to grab something is not very user friendly. It just doesn't cut it to today standards.
The UI is old and clouded with to many options.


Paying for this not recommend.

Ok. There are MANY options out there that offer the same functionality for free. That's right...for FREE. Why the dev wants people to pay I don't know. I'm not a GUI freak, I just want it to work - i.e., to allow me to save YouTube vids to my Mac. This does not offer anything new or substantial that would compel me to spend cash for it. There are plenty of free alternatives out there.

I really hate people dissing on software you have to pay for.
If you can use a free tool then just do and ignore shareware tools. Period!
But don't flame on programmers who do ask a little bit of money for all the hard coding they done.
It is not encouraging and is only intended to insult people/programmers. I cannot find any other reason why you do this.

Leave it and grow up and show some maturity please.

And if you can do it better. Please do.

Then the question begs itself: Why spend all of that time coding on an application when there are free versions that do the exact same thing? I am not "dissing" on anybody...for if the dev wrote this an wanted to charge money for it, it would naturally offer something substantial in the way of features to justify the expense. Consumers are not stupid, nor are they fools - this offers NOTHING NEW to justify the cost.

Sorry, but there is NOTHING wrong with letting people know there are better and FREE options out there. I think anyone that would take the time to write something that's already been done, many times, and offered for free, then try to charge for it, needs to do better market and competitive research and is in no way entitled to anyones money through ignorance.

moviesherlcok can search and download. No need to copy url from browser.

Heh - I would wish this free tool will have to be able to search...
