This software is kinda pointless. Why do you need an application to help you download the FLV files from Youtube, DailyMotion, etc. when they already download to this folder?


Just browse to a video, wait until it's fully downloaded, go to the path above using Shift-Command-G, copy the file wherever you want, name it what you want with a .flv extension.

And why transcode flv files to Quicktime (which makes the video quality worse than it already is), when you can easily view the FLV files in their native codec with this free Quicktime component?

Excellent App.

I currently use MacFUSE, and have most of my remote mounts already setup as bash aliases, but this is a nice touch.

I especially like the simplicity of the "no-dock" icon approach and the unobtrusive menu-bar item.

Well done.

Purchase the Apple MPEG-2 Playback for $20.

Then, open your ripped DVD Video_TS folder with MPEG Streamclip (FREE):

From here you can scrub across the entire DVD and transcode in DV or any other codec quicktime supports.

I found .61 to be very stable. .70 has been out a couple of hours, I don't think you've had enough time to review it. I've been torrenting strait with no problems. All the new features are really great. Several torrent sites are unbanning it. This is a must have upgrade to the best OS X torrent client.

Good crossplatform video chat app.
Btw, there is a good free version of this. But if you decide to upgrade to pro, you only pay once. Not annually.

This application does not support PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol.) My Canon PowerShot SD800-IS will not show up as a mass storage device and can't be configured to do so.

The manual suggests that when dealing with cameras like this, the user get a card reader and remove the card from the camera each time they wish to download the images.

The inconvenience factor this presents is a sufficient barrier for me. Unless PTP is added, I won't be using this product. I'll use "A Better Finder Rename" to give my images the names I want them to have.

I like the idea, but it did not work for me. I could unpack the archive with some problems, it did install, however, the script was on the wrong place (under Applications) and the encoding process returned an error. Maybe next time.

To Dev: What about the option you were going to add for the Apple icon? (Big or Small). I want to install this new version, but that big Apple is holding me back. It must be small like old(er) UNO. Please help!!!

This file is in a hidden directory. To open the file, open (just do a Spotlight search for terminal). Type the following at the prompt:

open /etc/cups/cups-pdf.conf

This will open the file in your default text editor. Edit the file to so that the default location is to your liking. I found the line I needed to edit at around line 43. I changed so that the folder is in my Documents folder instead of the desktop by changing line 43 to the following:

Out ${HOME}/Documents/cups-pdf/

You could also change the name of the default folder from cups-pdf to something else if you really wanted to.

Kinda unnecessary -- just use Google:

I didn't want to mar my previous review.
Seems as though the app doesn't support/ retain custiom ssh ports options.

Each time I set a custom port, MacFusion persists in only connecting to the standard (22).

This is the only minus in an otherwise great app.
