Could help finding that both reviews here are being written be new members with only one review.
This is almost for sure the developer himself. Proof me wrong.

Tell me. Why on earth should I use this? I mean, iTunes already does this and much more.

After doing my duo review of iTubeX and iTube Grabber I also tried this.
But to be fair, it just doens't cut it to today standards.
I mean, there are several very annoying issues with this utility it general makes this a useless effort.

* Why can I not quit downloading?
* Why doesn't it always convert the flv to mp4 (1 out of 5 it just doesn't work)
* Why doesn't it always capture the correct movie?

And I can go on summing up some other things but for me this is clear : not good at all.

Donating? No sir .. use iTube Grabber or iTubeX instead !

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.

Although being old and not update anymore this is still the best unrar utility for OS X.
It is fast and simple interface.

The only minor issue I encountered is it does not remeber password of argives. You have to enter this every time again and again.

A .DMG created with OS X 10.6 (GM) doesn't open under OS X 10.5

Needs a fix asap.

Funny. I was looking for a audio converter to convert FLAC files. First downloaded MacFLAC but that only gave a bunch op Applescript errors.
ALL2MP3 works but only to MP3.

By accident I discover this video converter. But it actually has audio converting possibilities I did not see in other audio converters.
You can convert nearly every audio format to another audio format.
No advanced Metadata support though.

Maybe the programmer should rename this to iMedia Converter :-)

Great tool and highly recommended for video AND audio converting.

For me the best OS X image editor. It is clearly a copy of Photoshop seeing all menus are exactly the same.
Great use if HUD windows makes this a joy to use.

For this price it is a absolute winner !

Thanks to all the programmers to make such a nice tool.

I like this. I like this very much.
Simple but effective interface with all the bells you need.

I also tried other torrent tools for OS X but this is by far and clear the best of the bunch.

Look no further when you want to share torrents.

Peter_earthman had trouble on 14 Dec 2009
Correction to my reply below: the about window can indeed be closed with CMD+W but all other windows still doesnt.

Some strange issues:

- Why does the main window refreshes when you close the preference window?
- Why does the main window refreshes twice when I press the refresh button?
- Why does iTubeX quits downloading at a random rate? This behavior wasn't there with previous version. Happens 2 out of 10 tries. When it happens I get a 0 size file.
