i HAVE BEEN UJSING THIS ALL DAY.This is a terrific tools. Get it!
Yes, it does them all and has replaced two other tools. Very fast. No muss and no fuss.
Morgan Pierce , Thank you so much for your comment and support.
I got this for free a few years ago and I found it so great to download from the Australian TV channel websites. I ended up paying for the full version so I could get the updates which happen often. Every now and then some downloads stopped working as the websites would change things so updates were necessary. Unfortunately it will no longer download from 10play though. Certain shows on other channels won't download either but most do. I have tried to work out the screen record when shows won't download but I just can't work it out - but that's user error!! I know it works - it's just me.
leesyloo_au, You may test it on another computer.
Prog installs fine but doesnt download a you tube video to mp3 conversion
chuffin, oops spoke too soon it is trying to accomplish the task now.
failed at 50%..i will try again
chuffin, eventually it worked.Not as smoothly as other progs have but usable
chuffin, Yes it can download from youtube to mp3, mp4, mov, avi, wmv, wma, aiff, flac etc format.
This is the first software i think of when i need to download something. Its screen doesn't look like much, but it has never failed me up to now. The inbuilt converter is nice, especially to extract the music from a video. I had the v126.96.36.19936 from a previous Giveaway, and this one being v188.8.131.5203, i guess there is some improvement. A keeper. Thanks
Terry, Thank you so much for your review. The latest version usually either supports more websites or fixes the website update issue.
Thanks Allavsoft! Installed and registered fine. Does anyone know how to create a custom conversion profile or how to use/edit the "User Defined" profile? Unless I'm missing something, I see no way to do it within the UI, and I can find a config file or registry section that defines all the built-in profiles. I have a specific need to define the exact resolution of the final video and other parameters involved in the final output. Where can these profiles be edited, even by hand if necessary? Thanks in advance for any clues.
Jocko Johnson, If you do not check before Automatically Convert to, it will download the original source file.
If you prefer other setting, you may set it before the downloading.
Does not run. All I get after installation Win10 is a splash screen.
Greg, Have you installed any anti virus software which may prevent installation.
What the heck??? I downloaded and installed the software and as I'm about to register I noted the small print that says this is strictly a trial version. It will allow me to download 5 videos of up to 5 minutes each. Did the wrong software get downloaded? This is hardly a "lifetime" software and doesn't compare to what other users are saying in their comments.
>"...as I'm about to register I noted the small print that says this is strictly a trial version."
That should be the case BEFORE registering. Try registering and see if it remains a trial.
Peter, You may need to register with the license key to make it a full version.
How do I register the program it is only a trial when installed and I had a licence for a year before?
K, You may find the license code in the readme.txt file.
You may set your name as the License name
I have been using Ant DownloadHelper to download videos from youtube and any other website, I am curious if anyone has an opinion on whether this program is better than Ant? Or if they are similar? Will probably end up using both
It is a good video downloader. I think it is better than Ant downloader.
casedistorted, both were have pros & cons. AntDM were basically download accelerator (much like IDM) with additional stuff like torrenting and built-in converters after download, so in terms speed AntDM technically more speedy. But Allavsoft have basic media editing like file converters, merge, and gives more in websites support than AntDM, in additions support of some streaming devices, even sometimes revert back by using youtube as sources (directly or using bundled youtube-dl).
casedistorted, there are many youtube downloaders out there a lot are completely free or donateware most are based upon the public domain youtube_dl.exe or equivalent set of python scripts the key thing is whether the youtube_dl.exe engine integration has been designed to use the youtube_dl.exe -U self update check and rights management to allow the engine to self update or if that requires the end user to obtain a new complete update of the program dust to obtain a current version of the freely available youtube_dl.exe program. SOME of these downloaders self update automatically and do not require reinstallation other like allavsoft does not out of the box. It is possible to create a shortcut or batch file to manually make the youtube_dl.exe file in the install folder self update when needed but it's not built in. Allavsoft also does not provide any significant control over which media files of the files on offer by youtube servers will be downloaded with just generic text description of a preference but no actual control. can't choose mp4 over webm! AntDM is much more granular in choice of exact file(s) to download from youtube but it is possible because it does not use the public domain youtube_dl project for youtube downloading that it will require waiting for a new giveaway or paying for an update if their currently installed youtube engine becomes incompatible with any changes that google/youtube apply to their service to try and foil commercial unauthorised youtube downloaders like these.
casedistorted, I prefer to use Allavsoft. It is easy to use and supports many video and music websites and can download the media files to MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV, MKV, MP3, WMA, M4A, FLAC, WAV etc format.
I will try again with this. The last time it was given away it kept reverting to the standard free version and wouldn't accept the code.
carl barbour, The giveaway license key limit updates. If you prefer a lifetime update license, you may buy with the above 70% off discount. 70% off discount: Give70%Off
Directly buy link:
Does this a version (given here free) support Spotify? Their website says only the paid version supports Spotify,
What is changed since v3.22?
OldGuy, the giveaways usually do support spotífy for a while at least until spotífy makes changes to break unauthorised downloaders.
OldGuy, I am able to download from Spotify no problem with this
OldGuy, Yes, this version support Spotify, Soundcloud, etc music website sites.
Does it support Opera add-on?
Mustafa Ciftcioglu, Extension is no longer supported, you may simply copy and paste the video/music link or playlist link to Allavsoft and click Download button. You may also copy and paste multiple ones at the same time.
I have version 184.108.40.20640 from previous GOTD, is it worthwhile updating to this version 3.23.....?
As did I -- from last March, I believe. I'm thinking this is the same version, until I see a changelog indicating otherwise. This has become one of my three top video downloaders, and for ease of use it tends to be the one I reach for first. None of them can cover *everything*, some will detect a particular target file better than the others, so I like to be able to cycle between them if necessary. Currently, Tubedigger is neck and neck in a tie for 1st. place, with VideoGet not very far behind them. (Both of the latter are also paid programs, and have not turned up as promo / giveaways -- at least not for several years.) I also have Ant DL, and a free one that can sometimes be useful called TVDownloader. Applian goes way, way back, and I've not checked in on it for a very long time. (The ones that are offered in the form of browser extensions I've not had good luck with . . . . ) That Ares one I'd never heard of.
Richard Woodley, 220.127.116.1103.
Gene, these minor build numbers for this type of product are usually released to fix a particular services unauthorised downloader blocking counter measures. No reason to not install latest Allavsoft product if new license terms are not worse than you already have. As far as I am aware this developer does not publish a change log... which due to the clandestine nature of the product with some services it is not surprising.
Richard Woodley, If 18.104.22.16840 meet your needs, there is no need to update, if some websites are not supported, you may test the latest giveaway version.
Thanks for your reply, and that is not surprising. Haven't noticed any failures type of problems, so I would hesitate to do any update, out of concern for possibly invalidating the license for the March edition giveaway, by so doing.
Hasn't been updated in a while, but it's good, a worthwhile tool for video downloading and screen recording.
FelixC, Thank you so much for your review
I use this as well as Applian Media Catcher, both for well over a couple years and this does a good job at downloading various videos and mp3s with ease. Still prefer Applian one though.

Joseph , Hard to tell. I have MBAM Premium as well, but I got no such thing. I even checked the exe at VirusTotal, and none of the av motors flagged the file negative.
Joseph , read the report... it is malware bytes heuristics engine that made that guess. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heuristic_analysis It is not an actual detection of an in the wild known infection by pattern matching. It is a false positive guess.
Joseph , Our Allavsoft is safe to use, and there is no virus in it. We have served our customers more than 7 years.
If it is reported as Malware. Please contact your anti virus software to let them manually test our product.
It is a false positive.
Everytime we update our Allavsoft, it will be reported by some of the
anti virus software. After some time, when it is not newly updated, the report will automatically disappear.
Joseph , I do not have Malwarebytes but do have 2 PCs & a Mac (each with an antivirus program by a different company.) I did a virus scan on both setup files on the three computers & no issues were reported.
I am NOT saying there is not something hidden away but tried several internet searches prior to downloading this app with the only page listing an issue with VDProxy.dll was this page.
Joseph , I also have MBAM Premium and it didn't complain...
Program runs very well. I even tested it with Youtube, and it downloaded a video without any problems.
Gerald, Yes it is, in fact it support many websites. Thank you so much for your review.
Very good piece of software, I finally happily bought lifetime license (for the always changing site encoding updates) after last time it was offered here and I am very satisfied and blindly suggest this.
Nektar, Thank you so much for your purchase and review.
I use Ares 126.96.36.19988 to download Movies, free and in multiple languages. You also know immediately or the movie you are looking for with many 'seeders' or none. That is the case with older films. Enkere hours ago I downloaded The Smurf 2.
FROSTWIRE is also there, but Windows 10 Defender does not want to install it more because there are 4 errors.
Ralf Bendisk, Allavsoft also works great to download from many video, movie and music websites.
Ralf Bendisk, BitTorrent is a different thing to this tho, depends what you want to do and your feeling of acceptable legal risk.
David, Ares 188.8.131.5288, can also download all kinds of programs and much more.
Ralf Bendiks, Again, this is not in the same ballpark as Ares..Ares is a peer-to-peer client software, much like uTorrent and eMule.
This is more of a video capture software for various sites, as Youtube, Spotify etc.
Ralf Bendiks,Ares is not a file downloader it is a peer 2 peer file sharing client using the bittorrent protocols, you are comparing apples with golf balls.
Yes, peer 2 peer opens several cans of worms: in itself a red flag with many ISPs, so a good idea to also employ a good VPN if venturing down that route; various security issues. For torrents, I much prefer a couple of the intermediary services, which fetch and store such content for you -- no direct, real-time connection with your computer, retrieve it from the intermediary at your convenience. (Offcloud being one, and seems to be pretty good, currently sampling Linksnappy. These are also offer some multi-hoster content access, though results with that can vary quite a bit. And some filehosts are blocked in certain countries.)
