Ahem... My computer is probably cursed by some voodoo wizard, but none of the versions I tried of iTubeGrabber, iTubeX Ultimate and some other grabbers have ever worked for me without crashing or else... Until I discovered Tooble today! (thanks to ROBERTCOOGAN2 who mentionned it, see iTubeGrabber's reviews) It's not a viewer and its interface is not very stylish, but at least it wooooorks! (and nevertheless, it's free!) As for the browsers/viewers, you might try MacTubes or Minitube. (I still have to try Youview and FLV Spider)

I am using this from day one and it has grown to a very nicely crafted application. Always thought it would be free but the low asking price is reasonable. I would gladly pay $7 for this great software. Gets a full 5 stars from me.

Something tells me 0.9.21 is going to stop working pretty soon, forcing us all to upgrade to the commercial version.I hope the developer will at least be straightforward when it happens by warning us before we download and delete the beta that worked fine. It's also VERY frustrating to have to read that the free version stopped working due to the sudden appearance of "...an unspecified bug in the Mac OSX operating system."

The support by the developer is outstanding: a problem submitted on a Saturday evening about an exception of class NilObjectException not being handled and requiring the app to be shut down, was solved within a few hours.

A must download for people who love to capture streaming movies. This one really does what it advertises. The bonus to convert to multiple codecs is a great addition I did not found on other capture utilities. One question though, will it be free at initial 1.0 release? I would pay if needed but free is always nicer. ;-) ;-) Kudos to the developer to make the beta public.

Nice app, although it does not seem to capture anything. It is a downloader. Try to capture anything on yahoo, say, at http://new.music.yahoo.com/videos/stations/charts/ It would say you "No streams found", although all of them are streams! There are a lot of downloaders, but I don't use any: Because with Safari it is easy to download any video which is downloaded to your disk anyway, like from youTube. I don't know free apps for mac which can really capture a video stream from web.

Seems like the YouTube search function isn't working? The URL created seems OK and works in other browsers, but nothing appears in the iTube Grabber window. Anyone else noticed this?

First time I needed a tool to grab a movie stream. Downloaded a couple of tools and this came out as a winner. Simple - easy - no hassle converting - nice looking UI - free (at least the beta) A winner

Do we need a new stream saver? 13 in a dozen already but hey at the moment this is free so why not. So I give it a try and .. .. what a surprise! This actually works fabulous and is very handy in searching for the video you need. The idea to use browser is plain simple but effective. Still in beta so I do not going to rate this at this stage but I would give it a 5 star rating at this point. Is there a price tag known for the final release?

Just one small question, despite i have checked in the preferences always convert flv, when i download with the red button I always get the flv file and not the converted file. Can't find a way to get it converted in mp4 - Where can I be wrong? I'm on 10.6.1

Seriously, this is one damn good program ! It is one of the few grabbing OSX tools that actually work on many sites. The user interface is plain simple and not over complicated. Even noobs like me can grab videos and convert them to a playable format. I really really like this program and is new member of my ever growing Dock. :-) Highly recommended when you need some video footage for offline playback.

Duo test with iTube Grabber and iTubeX Did several tests with both utilities and this is what I came up with: * Both capture most stream videos with no problems from the leading video sites. * Both can convert the downloaded flv videos to several codecs. However, iTube Grabber can do this automatically and without the need to install 3th-party packs. iTubeX needs the Perian pack to do this. Not a big deal but some people do not like to install extra stuff. Worth mentioning. * Both have a very good integrated browser detecting a full acid test. * I like the iTube Grabber interface more then the dull Safari like iTubeX. It goes without saying this is a personal preference. * iTube Grabber has a neat stream history. Incredibly handy to catch hidden streams on some pages. This said, multi streams on one page is not very common but if it is there you can make the best of it. iTubeX does not feature this. * iTubeX does not have a visible indication if there is a stream found. iTube Grabber tells the user this by a red grab button. * iTube Grabber lacks a browse history. * iTube Grabber has a "true" OS X interface. iTubeX has some issues (no correct Safari button behavior, no correct preference window, no correct about window, refreshing does not work correct - you have to press it twice, there is no shortcut to close windows and some more tiny bity annoyances) * iTubeX has multi language support. iTube Grabber not. My verdict: Both utilities do what they advertise namely grabbing videos and they both do a very good job. iTube Grabber has a advantage of doing some operations automatically such as converting, a stream history and having a "true" OS X interface. This gives iTube Grabber a small overall advantage for me. iTube Grabber is still in beta so I guess we can expect some more improvements. Therefore it is fair to rate iTube Grabber one star more then iTubeX.

I am a happy new osx user for two weeks now. Previously I used Youtube grabber for Windows. Always did the job nicely. Searching for a osx replacement was though. Tried a couple but other then iTubex I could not find what I was looking for. With iTubex I had some difficulties downloading at garage tv and some obscure sites. But in general iTtubex is good enough to register. Today I stumbled on iTubegrabber. What a great program. It reminds me of Youtube grabber but with a better osx interface. Glad I didn't register iTubex because for now I can use iTubegrabber for free. After downloading a whole set of videos I can already say this is the program I was looking for. Hope this stays free if not I will pay for it when it is cheap. Kudos to the dev for making the beta useable for everybody.

This beta actually works fantastic. I used it for about 1 week now and captured every movie I wanted and converted it flawless to mp4. The grabbing and convert flow does the business. The itunes interface is marvelous and gives appropriate information what is going on. The new stream window in 0.9.2 is a great new addition. Never seen this before in other grabbing apps and it really helps you selecting a stream when there are more streams on one page. The stream filter still needs some tweaking to be perfect ! Mailed the developer with some suggestions and feature requests. He replied promptly and telling me he will make a note of it. I gladly give it already a 5 star rating for being a good working beta and to motivate the developer to keep this on the right track ;-)

You cannot fail to compare this with iTubeX. It has a similar approach how to capture streams. Some thing I like about this newbie is the ability to see if there is a stream found without pressing a button. The batch processing is good but a progress bar in the downloads window should be great. The iTunes-a-like interface is nice. The interface follows the Apple guidelines - All standard shortcuts work (like closing windows for example), the browse buttons behave correctly, . . . I always felt iTubeX doesn't follow these guidelines strictly and that bothers me but off course that is more of a personal thingy. But OS X users like the OS X approach of things. Don't mess with it like iTubeX did. Don't get me wrong! iTubeX is a very good program. But seeing iTube Grabber is only at beta I expect a lot from this. It could well be a winner if not better then iTubeX.

This is really a incredible effort for a first time beta! It works without a problem and has some neat features thrown at it. ITube Grabber informs you if it has found a stream by a red glowing capture button. Very handy! Converting to mp4 without the need to install other video codecs is cool! Very important to me and shows the completeness of this program. I like the user-interface and workflow of it. The information window is helpful and looks cool. I can't wait to see what this baby will bring us when it is finished. For a beta it is already very good and useful. Big thumbs up for this.
