A really useful app. I have been using MovieSherlock since 2013 and overall I have been very pleased with it. I love having the ability to download a YouTube video and watch it when I want without having to be connected to the Internet. The downloads are typically fast and glitch-free. I have used if for videos, podcast, and online music. I have not had much success using the Video Capture that it supposed to integrate with Safari, hence the 4 star score. If I could get that working, I would award a 5th star.

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

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

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.

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.

Looks promising but a very limited trials is not enough to evaluate it properly. It is also way to expensive. Sorry .. avoid. BTW I prefer iTubex .. well proven and at first glans better and very cheap.

No try - No pay. There should be at least some way to test this app before dissing a whopping $35 Anyhow, I can highly recommend iTubex - much cheaper and it works with no issues on most (if not all) webistes.

We really don't need a 754th YouTube downloader/converter. There's already too many that are designed to download vids from only one website, especially since so many of them can't even handle that simple task. I have 6 different apps for YouTube, but only 1 or 2 of them work correctly on any given day. Instead, we need more apps that work on ALL websites, like CosmoPod (which has worked the best for me thus far) or xVideoServiceThief.

A working peace of software. Just work and nothing more. Also is cheep which makes it good. Converted files are good but not perfect. With my macbook pro was able to download and convert 8 movies at the same time. I've noted that download speed a bit faster than realtime. But I may be wrong here - will ask support. I would rate it as 4 from 5.
