This application was created for Mac users who wish to download and convert online videos, tutorials or documentaries to various formats and save them on their local drives. This way, you can always watch your favorite clips, even when you're not connected to the Internet or you're away from your computer, by playing them directly from your media gadget (mobile phone, tablet, etc.).
The utility provides you with two ways to download clips: add download info (video URL, select destination folder, choose format, etc.) after clicking the + button or use the integrated web browser. Unfortunately, this built-in tool doesn't always work as it occasionally freezes when loading webpages.
You can choose from a wide variety of output formats for the downloaded clips that are compatible with Apple devices, PS3, Xbox, etc. What's more, you can import local MP4 or FLV files and convert them to dozens of media formats.
If you click the Check For Updates button, the app says that this is the latest version available and the problem with some videos that can't be downloaded was fixed. Sadly, the last part isn't accurate. I still encountered problems when trying to download some videos. The app displayed the Network Error message.
As a conclusion, I'd say you should try other video downloaders as this program isn't as efficient as it's being stated on the homepage of the developer.
