    CRAPWARE It installs addons without your consent. Changed search engine and home page to conduit.com Lost all my tabs in Firefox (was set to restore from last session, changed to conduit home page) Installed some silly sweet player etc. Unacceptable, AVOID!

    It's one thing to charge for software. It's quite another to inform us that we're downloading a bug fix - then - surprise! - oh, by the way, there's now a fee for a fully functional version. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

    It's not there yet It is very slow parsing a playlist Most Important it has no ability to download the original video. Why I would want to convert the video and lose quality more so with ffmpeg is a joke. LET US DOWNLOAD THE ORIGINAL VIDEO AS IS Gone to find something better this software atm scores 25% of 100% so little when it should be so much better. How simple it would be to allow download the original video as is. What makes you think we would want first option to convert and lose video quality ! See the smart mode have there original video and let it download direct without modifying it Never tried download speed, hope it is not the same as another I tried clickgrab where downloaded to user documents temp folder wtf what a mess, that was even after I selected folder to download direct to. Mentioned in case yours is the same that I suggest you also change for the better. As is sourceforge.net where coders are more often on the ball. I will check back soon to see if you have made this software better. Let us download original videos for all resolutions make sure video is downloaded direct to folder we choose not a intermediate folder before download folder Speed up parsing of video lists and download if as needed (The other software mentioned downloads like a slug)
