I gave v3.8.0 one more try and thought to disable my antivirus before installing... that was what generated the error before. Avira detected the adware present in the installer and refused to continue, something that it hadn't done before. You don't know what's in those antivirus updates!
Arrrrgh! Fooled again!



Dec 20, 2015 Version: 3.8.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



I've been using previous versions of Freemake Video Downloader for some time and have been quite satisfied with it. I noticed there was a new version and it looks like it's only a 64 bit program now and won't run on my XP system. The installer won't run, so I still have Ver 3.7.5.0, but there is nothing on the Freemake website alerting us. I guess there won't be any improvements for the 32 bit version.



Dec 18, 2015 Version: 3.8.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



First off, it only gets an 8/10 overall because I detest shovelware. I even considered knocking it down to 7/10. If you're only looking at the checkboxes during installation (they're counting on it), you will miss the fact that some of the pages encountered during installation are for other software that you quite likely have absolutely no use for, and you won't even see a checkbox to opt out of them unless you choose "custom installation" on every page. Fortunately, I always automatically choose "custom", so at least I didn't have to muck about removing all the crap.

Now, as for this latest update, it solves one of the two major problems I had with the older version. It will now load a complete playlist even if some (or all) of the videos in it are listed as "age restricted." You used to have to add the URLs for any age restricted videos individually. Now, as long as you can download the videos individually, it will load them in a playlist as well.

The second problem still remains however - if a video is only available as transport streams, freemake will not touch it. For those, you still have to resort to TubeDigger.



Aug 31, 2015 Version: 3.7.5 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Simple and effective. As of the date of this post, latest version works for YouTube, Hulu, iSpot, and others. I only deducted a little from "value for money" for the adware. But hey, just choose custom install and deselect the junk. Don't use the express install. If you install unwanted junk, it's your own fault.


Dec 22, 2013 Version: 3.6.2.2 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 9/10



I think this is a great program, it downloads when it can and if it doesn't try something else.Read what boxes are checked at installation and don't just blindly click OK, NEXT, FINISH.


Dec 7, 2013 Version: 3.6.2.1 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10
