Movie Saver is an easy to use Windows freebie that helps you download your favorite clips from the Internet.
If there's something that deserves to be praised, that's the interface because it takes just a second to figure out how to use the program thanks to its intuitive design.
What's more, the program comes with quite a limited number of configuration options, which again can be only good news for beginners who don't want to spend too much time setting up the tool.
The main window thus prompts users to input the video URL and hit the 'Load URL' button, while the video queue shows information such as video name, format, file size and progress. Of course, you can also define the target path, while a few more settings are available under the options screen.
There are only a few preferences to play with however, so you can only enable auto-update, define the number of simultaneous downloads and choose a different color theme for the app.
Movie Saver does its job very well, but the problem is that it sometimes fails to recognize the URL, so it cannot start the download of specific clips. It supports FLV videos, so the most popular online video sharing services are compatible as well.
All things considered, Movie Saver is a handy piece of software that can help a lot of YouTube fans out there, but a few improvements are still needed. A video conversion tool would definitely help, while more detailed documentation is a must have.
Key features of Movie Saver:
- Compatible to FLV-files (Flash videos)
- No flash player for reproduction required (even if your browser refuses to work you can copy the video address and load down and watch the video with MovieSaver).
- Extremely easy handling per Drag & Drop or Copy & Paste.
