Brief review for the previous version
Online video is pretty big business these days, and simple utilities for downloading and converting video are essential for anyone who’s a fan or regular user of internet video. aTube Catcher, developed by DsNet, is a freeware utility which downloads videos from not only YouTube (as the name might suggest) but also Myspace, Dailymotion, Metacafe and others. it also allows you to convert video between different formats and a raft of other features including screen-capture functionality, video conferencing with instant messenger programs and VCD or DVD burning capabilities. Sound like a lot? It is.
Fortunately, aTube Catcher’s interface is extremely easy to navigate and figure out, with clear and concise instructions within the UI helping you deal with the few buttons which are there. Downloading a video involves getting the URL, pasting or dragging it into a box, and hitting the download button. The download process takes a little time, but the quality of video is excellent and doesn’t clip or desync any of the material like certain programs are known to. Another extremely welcome feature is a set of templates for your video formats and file types, which cater both for different bandwidth speeds and mobile devices like iPods.
Other features work well too, especially aTube Catcher’s media burning features, and although certain slight issues exist - like being unable to download multiple videos at once and a tendency to install unwanted icons on your desktop without asking first - the program is an all-round contender which has few faults which we can pick. It’s suitable for both casual downloaders and those who need something more powerful - just make sure your bandwidth is up to scratch first.
