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

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

Sorry. Downloaded again and the safari video Catcher extension is present.

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?

Not very stable. Doesn't preserve title. Firefox better & free!

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.

I wasn't asked.
