I bought this application today. This is the ONLY program that captures video on ALL sites I've visited so far. I could even capture live streams of the Persian BBC which was not possible before. The DEMO version is very limited and doesn't show all its capabilities. Users who experience partial downloads should know that the demo version doesn't allow complete downloads. Despite a few tiny bugs I think it's the best video capturer I've ever bought. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

Rejoyce ! Finally, FLV spider can keep recording until the end of the movies (no more partially downloaded films). It makes it, by far, the best app in its category. I must admit that this LVSpider's developers have been working continuously to correct the many limits and drawbacks of FLV Spider. They have now achieved a truly efficient app. Future improvements, won't be so dramatic but they may still be welcome, for instance : - the capacity to start the copy from somewhere in the course of the movie (not necessarily at the beginning) - the possibility to opt for a direct download from a window's link (when available), as with iTubeDownloader or MpegStreamclip Congratulations for the good job. Please ensure that future updates do not ruin the present achievement (a possible issue because FLVSpider's updates automatically destroy the previously installed version).

Still stopping after a few minutes with the same cryptic message "Partially downloaded". It happens even when the site's window where the movie is played stays on top. Grrrrrrrr !

Hi everybody. Good news from http://home.flvspider.com. The developer upgrades free of charge all promotion versions of FLV Spider (which did not have the update function)! After upgrading FLV Spider to v3.1.20 I found that the program has become more stable. Now it works fine. I think that in terms of ease of use and quality the new version of FLV Spider works better than a program like Wondershare AllMyTube for Mac. In any case, all the sites I tried, I was able to download the video, but the program Wondershare AllMyTube for Mac sometimes refused to download videos.

Works only for some short films and some sites. Stops prematurely when the copy takes more than 15 minutes. It could be due to a failure in FLV's cache management, or FLV'sunability to update the connection when required by the site (including YouTube). Who knows? The error message(s) is totally worthless. In addition, when it stops prematurely FLV Spider cannot restart from where it stopped and - often - cannot even restart from the beginning. Lots of time lost without any hint to face the problem. IShowU is much more reliable but it must remain on top of the screen when it is operated. operating.
