None of the installer options works on Mavericks for me. Downloaded from Macupdate, mount, tick the box, click install, nothing happens. Ditto if I download directly from Adobe site. Do Adobe ever get it right? Pathetic.

A brilliant bit of software, has always worked flawlessly for me. Everyone with an ATV should own this software. Brilliant. The developer is working on queuing files and that will make this impossibly better when that happens. Buy it!

Unlike others here who, it appears, have had poor results with Snowtape, I've had nothing but positive results with the latest version and would recommend the software. I literally use it daily and for long periods and have not had one issue with it. Functionality is great, I really like the system wide hotkey options that let me play/stop or record/stop without having to be in the App. Recommended.

As with the previous version my GPU shows 100% usage all the time. This bug was introduced with one of the V 3 updates. It was never fixed in 3, persists in V 4. So there's no point for me in buying the 'upgrade' when the same annoying bug persists. I wrote to the developer regarding this before, no response. I've just written again so will be interested to see if this time I get a response. Very disappointing.

I can only agree with the other high ratings. The best radio player App. Nice hot key functions and most reliable. Support is second to none and the most positively responsive I think I've ever experienced. Add in the bonus low price. Excellent software and support. Highly recommended.

Under no circumstances should anybody buy this. I've owned this software for some years now and recently tried to run a scan of my Time Machine backup disc. WhatSize either hung, crashed and at the last attempt caused a kernel panic.
I emailed the Whatsize support people and this is the reply I got:

"as of version 4.7 or so WS will not scan TM volumes for various technical reasons.
for example TM volumes tend to be extremely large and so WS will most likely run out of RAM
that could cause the panic
another thing is that in crawling the disk WS could stumble on a bad block and cause panic."

Disgraceful. I've downloaded 2 free utilities both of which successfully scanned my hard drive and reported the detail I expected.

As others here have pointed out there are free utilities that work. This is the worst response I've ever had from any developer.

What is MacUpDates policy on advertising software that doesn't work on the admission of the software developer?

Or you could use Miro for free. Seems it'll do all the things you want, including downloading, saving and managing your videos. And it's not just limited to YouTube videos either.
Here: or here:
There's also a free Miro Video Converter here:
Can't speak too highly of Miro and the price is brilliant.
