It's very stable after the update, and it delivers the good, as promised. The quality of the video outcome depends directly from the original's quality, and it does a fairly nice job converting, if you decide so. The conversion choices are also good, but I would suggest the inclusion of aspect ratio settings, besides the raw pixel value. Other than those minutiae, I'm quite pleased with this app.

Youtube videos download fine but anything else is a nightmare. Constantly giving errors on trying to download from Google video. Still waiting for CosmoPod to update to Lion then I can delete this crap.

@ Xesc: How does it come that this version (2.4.1 Intel) is using 4 cores @ 100% all the time? When I look with ActivityMonitor the app takes 400% CPU from my Intel Core i7. And that's when it's doing nothing! After a few minutes my fans are blowing like hell. Best regards, Leppe.

I've recently bought my first Intel Mac (Core i7) and I'm very happy with this program. Version 2.4 is very mature and still free! Many thanks to the developer. Before my first Intel Mac I was able to build a couple of PPC builds. I started with almost no knowledge... Thanks to the developer for the Source Code! At this moment I've a first beta of a Universal build (PPC/Intel) version. Also version 2.4 and able to auto update plugins. The ffmpeg I've build (universal) is the first one that is working very good on my hardware and in Rosetta (PPC) and my builds. For the first time the program converts to any format (avi, wmv, mov, mp4, etc.) on both architectures and on Mac OS X 10.5 & 10.6 (in theory the app should also have to work in 10.4.11). I still have a few PPC beta testers from my first build, which was rather unstable, but I could use some more feedback from PPC hardware. I've put a lot of my free time in this program, so that PPC users could also enjoy this great program! I'm planning to support PPC versions untill it's unpossible because of various reasons... This could even be the last version! I hope not, but it could be. Never the less I'll try to support the last version and even make some changes for PPC. It's all I can do for the PPC community... Even when I was able to buy a new Mac I'm still aware that there are many PPC users for this program. If you ever want to donate, you have to donate to the original developer! It's his code, Open Source, that I've change a bit so it would run on PPC also. I'm doing this for FREE!!! If you're interested in the Universal build of version 2.4 send me a message and I'll send you a link. Thanks in advance for helping out PPC users who are interested in this great free program. With regards. doktermac@gmail.com @Developer: The ReadMe file in the source code about how to compile does not work! That's for Intel as well as PPC... Send me a message if you are interested in solving this issue. PS: Sorry in advance for the typos in this message :).

Well, it is better to download video with Safari Window -> Activity: Then you pick HD, best quality. As to converting to another format, yes it does it, but... with horrible quality. I'll stick with Safari.

TROUBLE Sometimes, the downloaded files are missing. Strange. It downloads and shows "Completed" but the file is gone. A very disturbing user experience. NOTES After the application starts, the main window's default focus is in the "Downloads Directory:" text-field. If you press accidentally a key that path is changed.

Hi PPC users. I've managed to compile a PPC version! I've downloaded the latest source and compiled it on my good old PM G5. I'm sure this app will run on any G4 and even a G3 (but that is something I need to test). The PPC version is very CPU friendly and the source is also very clean and well written! Anyone who is interested in this version, let me know and I'll put it online or I'll send to you. The diskimage is only 1,5Mb, so it's easy to e_mail or to upload this program to my personal or any server. Interested? Mail to doktermac@gmail.com !!! With kind regards. PS: Version is 2.1, plugins installed: 58, languages supported: 14, AutoUpdate is working ;-).

Because it does the main-job (downloading) so well, it deserves a rating of 4. If the automatic converter default-setting would work like it's labeled (or I need some English-lessons?), I would give a 5+. Well done.

Well designed and compact tool. You don't have actually to visit the site with the movie you want to catch/download, just drag the link from the index page (youtube and so on) to xVideoServiceThief instead of clicking it. It's perfect. It also converts a possibly cryptic filename to a real one. Note: the default settings for the built-in video-converter aren't that satisfying: I switched converting off. Worth a try, but I don't think that the 'Output quality' Setting: "The Same quality as the original video" does fulfill that promising telling. I guess they have to rename or redesign this setting because the quality is really not the same...

Would be nice to see a PPC/Intel version in the future and not an Intel Only... Fortunately there are enough alternatives, which are Universal, for free... BTW: Thanks for this free program! I'm going to try it out on my Intel iMac ;-). Regards.
