Very, very slow download.

Rating (out of 10)
Features as Described
It’s true- except it’s not fast, but VERY slow, and the search didn’t work when I tried it.
Ease of Use
Point and click.
98% CPU and 25 MB of RAM. Firefox, while downloading a video takes about 15% CPU and 100MB of RAM.
A couple inputs. Plus a lot of people want to download YT videos.
This category reflects an arbitrary number that does not specifically stand for anything. Rather this number is used to reflect my overall rating/verdict of the program in which I considered all the features and free alternatives.
Hooray- another video. Here’s the installation:
And here’s the actual usage (Note how annoyingly long the download takes- and I paused the video so you wouldn’t have to wait!):
This review was conducted on a VM running Windows XP Home Edition 32-bit. The specs of the laptop are as follows: 4GB of RAM and an AMD Dual-core 2.2 GHz processor.
And here’s are free alternatives (just copied from another Youtube Downloader review):
While ClipFinder is not a program that is similar to URL Snooper or Youtube Downloader, ClipFinder allows you to download videos from 14 popular video hosting websites. Additionally, ClipFinder serves a search engine for the 14 popular video hosting services.
The video hosting services it supports are:
2. iFilm.com (aka Spike.com)
In addition to being able to search all those website simultaneously with the same query, you have the ability to download the videos (as mentioned above). You can either view a video and click on the download button, or click on “URL – Adress” button from the top and paste in a URL. You can download videos from any of the 14 websites mentioned above (you may also be able to download from more sources but I have not found any yet). The videos are downloaded to your Documents/My Documents folder.
RealPlayer (as most of us probably already know) has a feature (“video grabber”) that allows you to download streaming videos off the internet. All you do is right click on the video that is playing -> “Download with RealPlayer” and RealPlayer will download it.
Any videos you download with this you should be able to get with RealPlayer.
Youtube Downloader has potential. If I could’ve gotten the search to work and had it been faster, I would have maybe even recommended it. However, I must instead recommend ClipFinder. Remember, though, there’s a billion different ways to download Youtube. Just make sure to download what’s going to be taken off soon download only things you’re allowed to download.
Who is the mysterious Locutus? No one knows, but there is an ancient tale that once his true identity is revealed, something big will happen. What? Who knows. The name Locutus is based off of the Star Trek: The Next Generation character Jean-Luc Picard.
