No doubt, there is some true love in it and it has probably some potential.

I like the price - I really hate it when they charge 9.90$ just because it looks better. Congrats for that.

Ok, I don't care much about CPU- or RAM-usage (if its not to much) because my machine has enough of everything and I also like iTunes and I won't pay for anything involved with free apple-software (which involves constant updating), but that's just me and my iPod.

Just so you know: if you have launched the app once it creates a "Ecoute Helper" process which doesn't quit with the application (iTunes has also a "iTunes Helper" process which is launched when someone logs into an account).

Why I write this comment? Because someone said I'm rude which is probably true but sometimes you get the good things from rude people which don't care about "being polite".

A trustworthy application, well done. Very stable. I use it since two years or more.

29$ is a good price for this kind of backbone-quality.
It does the job in the most professional way. Thats why I bought it. I also remember we used Fetch in the office over 10 years ago.

Recommended.

Some of them RealBasic-Folks are completely out of their mind. See at the price. Ok, let's also see what you get: this application is created with RealBasic, which every kid can use to produce a window with some stuff in it. It's easier than creating a website with a form. So, why they always over-charge their snipped-together-product? - let's see: RB costs 100$ (99$). As a RB-owner you have probably to buy some plug-ins to refill RealBasic's lack of cool functionality, so you will probably invest additional 50 to 100$ for that. My very unkind conclusion: they think because they paid that much already - only to be able to program in basic and compile that stuff into an executable - it's also that much worth.

Because it does the main-job (downloading) so well, it deserves a rating of 4. If the automatic converter default-setting would work like it's labeled (or I need some English-lessons?), I would give a 5+. Well done.

Well designed and compact tool. You don't have actually to visit the site with the movie you want to catch/download, just drag the link from the index page (youtube and so on) to xVideoServiceThief instead of clicking it. It's perfect. It also converts a possibly cryptic filename to a real one.
Note: the default settings for the built-in video-converter aren't that satisfying: I switched converting off. Worth a try, but I don't think that the 'Output quality' Setting: "The Same quality as the original video" does fulfill that promising telling. I guess they have to rename or redesign this setting because the quality is really not the same...

It's a nice application to play movies. It's very fast and responsive. I tested it with various files. It also has a "Desktop Background" feature, but the icons on the desktop are un-clickable, so it's not so much fun to use it while working. I hope that will change. You can also setup the fullscreen-transition, so it can go instantly-, fade- or zoom- into fullscreen.

One feature I would really like to see is a "fullscreen-movie-wall" function, which would play 1...16 or more movies at once. This could provide some very artistic possibilities. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there is no other player out with a feature like that, not even a commercial one(?). Killer-app-potential?

That's a good looking piece of hardware. Can I put it in the fridge? You know, to lift the secret of nightly food-disappearing :)

No need to crucify a funny yet informative comment (if you would think about it).
C'mon, people, 199$ and they can't afford to write one word about the cam's preferred physical environment? Or did I missed that in the specs? Yes, it says "indoor" use only. But, you know, does "indoor" specify the preferred environment in a long-term use? What about things like temperature, humidity and so on?
Besides, the price is (a bit) to high (for me) to order this cam without questioning.
I think also it would not fit the specs for a real security-cam in real life under real circumstances, so using it as a security-cam is just a neat side-effect. I would never use it as a baby-cam because of the radiation which every wireless device has and to spare the young one from that as good as I can. Just because something is invisible does not mean it does not exists and has no effect.

- if you don't want spend money for a task like this, why not use "Perian" with "MPEG Streamclip" to convert between these formats. This also works with wmvfiles, if "Flip4Mac" from Microsoft is installed.

- if you want to spend money and if you really need to convert flash-files to another format: buy "QuickTime Pro", install the (free) "Perian" and convert/export your flash-files with "QuickTime Pro". I tested it this week and it works (latest software). Costs are like 30$?

But... if you need a professional media-tool with presets you can choose from, "MediaCleaner" is/(was) the perfect solution. It's now "Autodesk Cleaner". It's very professional... and it costs also a professional price like 600$.

[ probably "Autodesk Cleaner" is a bit out-dated ]

Sometimes, it's obvious, sometimes it's not. If you are a web-developer, you can use "Top-Sites" to present your own web-sites, it looks very good and I'm sure it will make a fantastic impression to your (future) client. You should also enable the "Developer"-menu and play with that. BTW., you can also ctrl-click a part on a website & choose "element-information" which shows you that "object" in the source-code.

It's written in basic. Don't waste your money for anything created with RealBasic. Also a funny fact: the developers of all the various tools created with RB n e v e r mention that they did it with RealBasic - that's how they are proud of it.

It matters. Really. No, not the color of your skin nor your religious preference, but the tools used to make a digital product, they really matter.

It rocks, folks...

...but still refuses to execute bookmarks with javascript:-commands if the safari-window has a tab. This is the only bug (I hope it's not a feature) I saw (and annoys me just a bit enough to write it down here)

The javascript-bookmarks I use to resize the browser front window doesn't work anymore if you have a TAB in a window! This reminded me of "Netscape Communicator 4.x", because they had all the time such silly misbehavior. I wonder why this is happening with Safari, because it's top-software in a top-environment, so this makes no sense at all. I can't understand why the developers haven't fixed this yet. (Example: javascript:self.moveTo(0,0);self.resizeTo(800,screen.availHeight);)
