After registering, next time I launched it prompted me to go thru process a 2nd time. Re-registered. When I tried to download a video, the START key does not function. Uninstalled, no thanks.

Download, serial number request and activation went smoothly enough, but I was disappointed by the range of portals from which downloads could be made (it even rejected YouTube), and when I viewed the built-in Help instead of images there were meaningless image placeholders.

I find other tools like Wondershare Video Converter (which has a good video downloader, and costs about the same as MovieJack) and the free JDowmloader2 do a better job for me.

Not being impressed, I uninstalled MovieJack.

Download and installation ran perfect. Requested my key and got it right away. Registered the software and even updated the software. I was hoping for a list of site it can download from. Other than that..So for so good!

JardaH,
Hi,
Can I have MoveJack for free, since I cannot use MovieJack 4 with my WinXP computer?

After installing and clicking on the registration button, a white box with nothing but a key icon in the top left corner appeared on the screen .... 15 minutes later the white box is still there with no means of minimizing or closing, checked task manager and it showed no activity taking place. Also checked firewall to see if being blocked but that was ok. Eventually got VERY, VERY BOARD and uninstalled. What's the point of these giveaways if nobody can use them!

Thumbs up for Superfast download but thumbs down as it won't download the entire youtube playlist.

Not useful if can't download the entire playlist.

Dev Team, if anyone can response how to download playlist using your app.

Step by step:

(1) Click on 'Download Now' green button on this page to open link screen:
(2) Select "get a personal download link via email" if not an FB user;
(3) Receive within mere seconds email download link from GOTD;
(4) Click on download link to go to GOTD link page;
(5) Click on GOTD download link to initiate download;
(6) After download completes, unzip and then READ the readme text which advises you to install the program, look at the pop-up, fill in the registration form, request the serial number, then wait for the developer's email to land in your inbox with another link you should click;
(7) OPTIONAL STEP: Upload the exe from your desktop to VirusTotal to have it scanned (something I always do, but other folks may not bother.) V/T reports that 65 engines have scanned the .exe and only one has found anything that could give cause for concern;
(8) Continue on. INSTALL the software;
(9) Wait for the developer's email to land in your in-tray or, alternatively, go online to check server side in case it's in spam;
(10) Look at the clock and realize you're ageing fast;
(11) Find developer's email which contains a link for you to click to confirm that it was you who asked the developer for the email in the first place and not, er, somebody else;
(12) Click to confirm that you are you and wait, and wait, and wait, and wait, and realize you started on this just after breakfast and now it's nearing lunchtime and finally the link screen opens with the "serial number" so:
(13) Open MovieJack and confront two screens, the UI awaiting registration and an overlay screen saying the software is registered until tomorrow so please enter license key so:
(14) Enter license key and discover that right click C&P does not work so opt for control+C / control+V and it does and so:
(15) Discover that you have just spent some considerable time installing out-of-date software and should "update now and restart application", it being the case that what you have is version 3.0.17.816 and not the new version 3.0.17.1003;
(16) Skip update if, like me, you're already losing the will to live and instead:
(17) Check 'About' on the UI for confirmation that yes, you have the full version and yes, it's licensed for one year to October 20 2018, then confirm your download location on the UI screen;
(18) Check "settings" and de-select the 'always convert to MP3' option, as well as 'always check for updates'; also make sure you select the language that's right for you but ignore the 'path to ffmpeg.exe' box because you've already nominated your download location;
(19) Go to YouTube, select a video, copy the url, paste it into the "add url" field and now press the plus sign because pasting alone achieves nothing, it's a three-stage process to get anywhere with this, the last stage of which is:
(20) click on the Start button.

Alternatively:

(1) Go to this link: https://www.downloadhelper.net/

(2) Click to integrate the downloader into Firefox or Chrome

(3) Go to YouTube, select a video, click on the app's browser bar icon, choose a format from the half dozen on offer and the app will bring the video into your computer's Download folder.

Summary: aside from engelmann media's tasteless chortling over a Victorian psycho who eviscerated real women with real knives, MovieJack is not the DVD ripper it was way-back-when but just another downloader whose UI doesn't even come close to -- for example -- iSkySoft's iTube Studio, a GOTD favorite from at least 3 years ago which compiled a list of downloads in progress, downloads converted, and downloads archived.

Bereft of such functionality, MovieJack is less a reincarnation of a dead DVD ripper as a new name for a former engelmann media downloader called MovieSaver, a product which in my experience served only to add to this German developer's reputation for software at its most mediocre.

Given the substantial culling of its product range in recent months, it may be that the developer is trying to reassert itself, but if so, then its spectacularly unfunny excursion into the blood drenched --

https://moviejack.org/en/

for an app as prosaic as a mere downloader is as ill-considered as both the half-hearted UI on display here and the half-hearted fake product "reviews" from non-verified purchasers on Amazon USA:

https://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B01N5RIZB5/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_cmps_btm?ie=UTF8&reviewerType=all_reviews

Up against freeware like DownloadHelper and Eagleget, MovieJack is going to have to display considerable talent to succeed. But what those talents might be, I've no idea: the preposterous registration process for this giveaway has left me with no inclination to devote any more time to it.

Uninstalled.

MikeR, Thank you for your frank review much appreciated ... what do you recommend for Vimeo downloads?

MikeR, thank you for that outstanding review. I use Opera as my browser and the Flash Video Downloader extension does the job for me.

I would also like to mention that Engelmann is near the top if not at the top when it comes to spamming you with useless spam emails - useless to me anyway as most come in German. I registered for another of their programs previously and get 3-4 spam emails daily which I have directed conveniently to my spam folder, but still.... If you register for this giveaway with a useful email address and not a throwaway, be prepared for an onslaught of spam.

MikeR, Thank you, Mike, after reading your review, I've decided at 74 I have better things to do in my twilight years. I find the add-ons available in Firefox are as capable or better and certainly easier to implement.

John: Agreed. It is annoying that the registration of any software has the potential to result in mailbox bombing by the developer concerned. Not that I'm a big fan of Google, but its gmail facility has always excelled at contending with this. Junk mail is always best dealt with server-side, never at desktop, and gmail's range of filters consistently ensure that unwanted mail never gets through to my computers.

It looks good to me....obviously you can use it for free only for one year, after that you have to pay its upgrades (but maybe it may work even without update it)!
With FREEMAKE VIDEO DOWNLOADER (AD Supported App) you can no longer download videos longer than three minutes without upgrading to a Freemake Premium Pack, so it's not good at all.
Better use "aTube Catcher", "VSO Downloader", "ClipGrab", "Video Downloader professional" (Chrome Extension) etc...
And if you want to download entire Channels and Playlists in bulk, as well as private YouTube and Facebook Videos, or entire Instagram pages try this freeware:

Mario, What kind of junk are you sending people to with this link?

Reply   |   Comment by kiaville  –  28 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

Mario,
I've used Freemake a long time but I don'a allow it to self-update.
So I didn't have the newest version.
I downloaded version 3.8.0.41 this morning to see if there was a 3 minute limit on the free version.
This is the newest version.
I downloaded a full movie from YouTube 1 hour 32 minutes in length with no problem.
I tested it & was able to play any part in my media player.
So you are incorrect about the limit on the free version.

Mario, The review does state a 3 minute limit.
However I downloaded the new version this morning 10/20/2017.
I then downloaded a 1 hour & 32 minute full movie .
With no problem . There is no time limit on this movie.
I'm certain I could do the same again.
I don't have the Premium package & I never have.
So the proof is in using it.

What an utterly ludicrous registration process.

When you first load the program you enter your details and press the blue button to request the key.

There is no confirmation that clicking the button has done anything and after minutes of waiting for a key, you end up clicking again to hope that something is happening and trying out other email addresses.

Then eventually you get multiple emails and after clicking on the confirmation link the web page that you are supposed to be taken to is not functioning.

And another thing, when you first run the setup,exe you re asked which language you wish to use and if you choose the wrong one and then cancel the installation process, there is no way to change the language again, even after clearing temp folders and starting again after a reboot, which means that some information is being written to a hidden area, which raises security suspicions.

Download, installation and registration were pretty straightforward. I've been using Freemake Video Downloader for a while, and I'm satisfied with it: MovieJack has a slightly cleaner interface, but there's really nothing to choose between them. I downloaded a random YouTube video on MovieJack, and it was perfectly satisfactory. I can't say much more - if you haven't got a video downloader, or if you're not happy with the one you use, this one is free today - but I certainly don't think it's worth $19.99 more than the Freemake.
