MovieSherlock 6.1

MovieSherlock is a program that lets you download videos from the Internet.

MovieSherlock is an application for Mac users who wish to download and convert their favorite Internet videos with minimum effort. This handy program lets you search for your favorite videos on major media sharing websites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Hulu, etc. and save them on your Mac.

The app brings you a user-friendly interface, easy to configure output settings (in the Preferences menu), and a preview window where you can watch the videos before downloading them. You can use the integrated search tool to find the video you wish to download or browse the recent or popular video lists available.

In addition, the application allows you to enable Safari integration whenever it's necessary. By doing so, the app automatically downloads and converts any video you play using the Safari browser.

After working with this app, you can transfer the converted music and videos to your iPhone, iPad or iPod and play them whenever you like.

The only aspect I don't like about working with MovieSherlock is that it supports only two output formats: MP3 and MP4. As for the rest, the application proved to be of great use whenever I needed to download a video from YouTube or other media web pages and offered me high-quality results with just a few clicks.
