If while installing Moviesherlock you see the following message: “The operation can’t be completed because the item “CapibaraHelper” is in use.“ Please try to restart your Mac, and without launching MovieSherlock - override a new one over old. Sorry for the inconvenience. It wont happen again.

Ah, looking up! This time the app itself informed me when I asked that there was a new version. The download worked OK, but when I attempted to copy the new.app to Applications, I received the following: “The operation can’t be completed because the item “CapibaraHelper” is in use.“ Don't know what that means, but later, after a re-boot, I'll try again. Description of changes appreciated. -MTC

Dear Customer, We appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately, there was an error in one of previous versions that might prevent drag-n-drop installations. The solution here is to restart your mac and than try to override old MovieSherlock with a new one. It won't happen again. Do not forget to install our Safari Extension: integration feature that helps to download YouTube videos in Video Capture mode. And it even blocks YouTube ads for you, if you say so!

Frequent updates, all with the exact same description of what's been updated. Only the number (of the current version) changes.

Dear Customer, Unfortunately we were not the one updating the listing description. We already contacted MacUpdate team on this issue. Because of the nature of MovieSherlock frequent updates are important to match changes on sites like youtube. So sometimes the only new thing changed in the new release is fix for changed sites. Not really a new feature, but its important to fix it so our customers will continue enjoy smooth download. But the 5.3.7 update is different. In short we added ability to download dailymotion videos with subtitles, fixed youtube subtitles and Safari Extension went on the hole new level, including youtube ad block feature

This downloader works very well. It has downloaded video from all the sites I have tried so far. I also had a small issue with the software and the developers contacted me back and fixed the issue in a new version within a day. Excellent support from them. Thanks Again

Newest version is missing VideoCatcher.safariextz from it's resources. I so regret paying for this horrible program. The developers want your money and don't care about delivering a decent product. I'm now going to throw it away and learn my lesson for the next time I buy a program which fails to work correctly in demo mode. I should have known. Stay away from this garbage program

What happens is that when you install the safari plugin, it's removed from MovieSherlock's resources. So if you delete and then need to reinstall the plug in, you can't without getting a fresh copy of the app. Not good. And the plugin remains at 4.8.2 even with it's known problems. So I still maintain that this app is very flawed and not worth the money.

Hi JerryB, I am sorry that you had an issue with one small MovieSherlock feature: MovieSherlock YouTube Safari Integration. I confirm your issue and proud to say that it has been fixed in MovieSherlock 5.1.6 available from our web site or here. Thank you very much for reporting the problem. Anyway, MovieSherlock still offers more than 3 ways to download YouTube videos :) Thank you for being our customer.

Today there is apparently an update with number 4.8.4, but I downloaded a version with the same number on June 5th. In January 2013 there was a similar situation. I asked then: is this the same file? But did not get an answer. Now I have to ask again: is the 4.8.4 of today the same of June 5th? Can the developer or MacUpdate answer this question?

Purchased 4.8.3 a few days ago. When I click on the download button in Safari and Movie Sherlock opens, it always asks me for my reg number even though I've already registered it. Wrote to the author of the program. NO response. Not good. Can't recommend this product based upon bugs and lack of programmer's response.

Three days ago I downloaded a version 4.8.1 Today there is a new version with the same number. Is there any difference or is it the same version?

I have one question, where is the download button next to the video. I activated the download button option in MovieSherlock preferences. I do not see a download button next to any youtube videos.

Sometimes I see a download button, sometimes not. Seems as if it doesn't work with some videos on YouTube.
