VideoGet is a tool for downloading your favorite video clips from more than 100+ video websites. It supports such websites like YouTube, MySpace, Google Video, Yahoo Video, VSocial and a lot more.

Most of these video websites are keeping video in FLV format, and a lot of people don’t know how to playback these files. VideoGet also providing you with ability to convert each video in most popular formats for more comfortable video playback. VideoGet supports AVI, MPEG1, MPEG2, WMV, FLV, MP4, 3GP, MP3 file formats, so you will be able not only to view it, but also put it into your iPod, mobile phone or any other portable device.

Furthermore you can set up video/audio quality, set up video frame rate, width/height and audio sampling rate. With VideoGet you can create a list with videos you want to download and download them later. These lists you can save and load later.

If you’re downloading large video file and your internet connection was lost or something went wrong with your internet – don’t worry, VideoGet will not download this video from the beginning but resume downloading from the place it was downloaded.

In VideoGet you can pause download process, move files up or down in queue as a standard download manager does.

While the program is great overall, I find it does not like non-European characters in the names (I have only tried with Japanese - this might also apply to characters unique to non-English languages as well [eg accented characters]).

I tried downloading a Japanese video from Youtube. Although the name showed correctly in the "name" field, the filename of the captured file was mojibaked - the Japanese characters of that name were all replaced by underscores.

Suggestions to authors:

-- If a system supports unicode characters, please give the option of leaving those multiple-byte characters alone if possible. While display/input of East-Asian languages is not installed by default (it adds several MB to the installation), XP and beyond do support unicode in filenames. (Only exceptions are slashes, colons etc) The long-filename API calls are already unicode-friendly.

-- Please add, as an option, appending the "posted by" data to the filename. (If videos had the same title, this version just happily overwrote the others without warning)

-- Please add a way to manually override the filename to save the file to.

@146, primerib...

i'm glad you got it working... :)

i posted last night & it wasn't allowed thru, sorry...

if your player doesn't support .avi files, then yes, you'll have to convert them to .flv...

you can either start from scratch downloading/converting with VideoGet, or use another converter if you have one installed.........i didn't see an option to use VideoGet as just a converter, but i may be wrong...

good luck, primerib!

@144, Violet4714,

It worked! Thanks so much! My only remaining question is:

Can I transfer all my "black" .avi files to .flv files, or do I have to start all over from scratch?

#144

Just as an FYI, converting .flv files to .avi format only increases the file size on your hard drive up to 3x the original size, and it will not improve the quality at all... the quality can only be as good as the original .flv file. For that reason I prefer to keep the .flv format if it's a file I want to keep.

Instead of converting the files to bloat them, there's a great program that's small and free, FLV Player, that I've used for years and just reinstall when there's an upgrade. You can download it at http://www.download.com/FLV-Player/3000-2139_4-10467081.html .

@142, primerib...
you're welcome...
please check the Output format dropdown box for the type of player you have, and select it...
when you select the format, the Video Encoder should auto-adjust to the correct one for the selected Output...
hope that helps...
if not, the forum folk are the way to go...lots of knowledge there...

instead of "Tools" & "Add-ons" under the address bar, try "Tools" under the search box...
Tools>Toolbars>>>then uncheck "Lock the Toolbars"...
if there are additional buttons available there will be an arrow on the right showing them, and a bar to the left of the buttons...you can slide the bar to the left to show the buttons then lock the toolbar again, or leave the toolbar unlocked & some buttons hidden...

Well this one is over BUT wanted to note that the Firefox plugin does work with version 3 - IN firefox, navigate to programs\Nuclear Coffee\Videoget\Plugins and click on Videoget_FF.xpi, which should then install normally! HTH, saw others had the same problem.

For #112, the icon in Firefox is in the bottom status bar at the right side. There's no description when you hover over it like usual plugins, but click the icon and it'll bring up the program interface. If you have your Firefox theme set to not display the bottom status bar, you probably won't see it.

You should also be able to bring up options for it from the top menu under Tools, Add-ons, as "VideoGet Firefox extension 1.4".

My only problem with it is that the conversions for me have the audio badly out of sync with the video. The video looks great, but that doesn't do much good when the clip is out of sync. It could be the codecs on my system doing it though, and as I said, there's many other programs that will do the conversion easy enough. The ease of downloading the .flv files though really can't be beat.

Exactly what I needed. Been looking for a good freeware version for quite some time now, but none of them were very good. Very impressed with how many sites it works for, haven't tried them all but I'm sure it works for most of them. It's software like this that keeps me checking out this site everyday. Thanks alot Nuclear Coffee and GOATD. I probably won't get an answer to this, but I noticed it updated when I installed so does that mean we get updates also? Thanks

I really like the fact that this company does not try to blatantly rip-off their customers like so many other companies producing these video tools. For example, many other companies just separate the functions (PSP, iPod, DVD) into oh-so-many different apps when the underlying conversion is the same. Branding? More like ripping people off.

But Nuclear Coffee seems like a good company. I went to check out the other featured software by them and it seems they look like honest people providing honest video tools. Their VideoGet supports all websites that they can support - instead of having one for YouTube and other apps for other sites (only script differences, why separate apps?).

I also find their video conversion tool just as honest. There's not much different between a mobile MP4 player and PSP but almost all other companies separate these functions - put on a different skin and slap on a different file filter. Nuclear Coffee, on the other hand, didn't try to rip off their customer. So, if you have more than one of the devices, you need only one app instead of buying the same underlying codes again and again for different devices.

So is their VideoPut tool. Just as honest.

On top of that, all their software are just perfectly priced! For $19.95 you can get this honest and good video downloader instead of paying $39.95 over and over again for different video sites. And only $29.95 for the video converter that supports all popular devices! Now, I think that's good marketing policy: be honest, don't rip off, and price it a little bit lower than what most people think it's worth.

Now why am I giving a review of the company instead of the software? Well, any software produced by a company that's not trying to rip you off must be good software. If the software's not good enough, you can at least be sure that you will receive good service. At the very least, you know you're helping good honest people make good honest living. The consumer votes with our money (or number of downloads and votes, in this case.. hehe).

In fact, I think this company always get good votes here, even though almost all other video-related tools always get bad votes. So, I don't think the votes here are only because people are frustrated it's the same kind of software, but because it's the same kind of rip-offs.

I was wondering if it beats download helper cuz every time I go to a website with firefox, download helper spins around and tells me it that site has a video. Then I just click on it and it downloads the damn thing. In what way is this program any better? Most videos I see are either swf or flv. I guess there are wmvs imbedded on some sites. Anyways, what I am starting to understand is that nobody wants to adhere to one common video standard in their websites. Its like a cowboy town where anything goes (the internet). I hate to see regulation cuz who is gonna be the boss? But my opinion is that websites should be standardized and, by the way, make money off of advertisements but make everything else free. Remember.. TV used to be free? You could record anything you wanted and nobody cared, cuz the adds pay the bill. So lets just get back with the program and stop playing hard to get. I want free video and in return you can try to catch my wallet with your advertisement schemes..u bastards.

#113: If you want to check before & after info to double check audio bit rate, maybe the free MediaInfo (videohelp.com) would help?

Conversion works good as you mentioned, but it's initially confusing if like me you look for some sort of start button rather than clicking to download a file already on your drive. Be careful though - some of the formats might be a bit old... showed DivX 3 instead of the 6.xxx installed on my PC.
---
#96: unfortunately this isn't a fully portable app - could try one of the portable app suites to see if it converted OK, but as it is the key's stored along with quite a bit of other info in the registry. At the least have to register it each time by entering the key, and it leaves quite a few reg entries behind (which may or may not bother you). Also, you don't always have access or permissions to write to the registry on public PCs.

"#96. Could you expand on that? How do you do that?"

Yes. Install the program on your PC. Activate then exit the program. Go to where you installed it (probably - C drive - Program Files - "Nuclear Coffee"). Copy all the files in "Nuclear Coffee" then paste them into a new folder (create a new folder labeled "VideoGet" on your desk top for this). In the new folder you can delete "Unis000.dat" and "unis000.exe"
Now transfer this folder to your flash drive. Try this out on a different PC where VideoGet is not installed. You open the folder and double click on the "VideoGet.exe" icon to start. Make sure to exit the program before removing your flash drive.
Good luck.

FWIW, for those who've downloaded files before getting this, you can also convert files on your local harddisk using the file:/// URL, e.g.:

file:///V:music/youtube/Bad_Moon_Rising_Misheard_Lyrics.flv
file:///V:music/youtube/Shock_The_Monkey.flv

and e.g. convert it to just .mp3, or a different format for editing, or even convert other things to .flv. (Just point to your file with the file:/// url.) Since videoget supports a batch load/save option in .txt format, you can even create a batch text file, 1 line per file in the above format and load it.

Videoget installed and runs fine sandboxed on XP pro SP3. I do have a
problem: no icon shows up in Firefox 3. Maybe because it's the newer Firefox version, or because I have Noscript? If anyone knows how to get it to work please let me know. I've been using video downloadhelper and VLC, but this seems more convenient.

I like the idea of setting the quality settings to 'original' - that saves some manual fussing to avoid inflating the file size (which requires first downloading). But I notice the audio stream bitrate for 'original' always seems to come out as 64 kb/s. Am I just misunderstanding the terms? (Will check back after 10).

Thanks!

The best yet for downloading video form different sites, not just YouTube. It even works on videos from www.theonion.com.

For the person having uninstall problems, tey Revo Uninstaller or the uninstaller in Glary Utilities (both are free).

For the person having trouble getting the program registered, click on the key icon then the button on the pop-up window for entering the registration info.

I have one problem, and it's not a show-stopper since it works with a copy and paste operation of the URL into the program, a slight inconvenience compared to using a plug-in button on a browser. I can't figure out how to use the Firefox extension it was supposed to have added for me. It's not listed under plugins nor under extensions, and I don't see any icon on the browser window. I see it in Internet Exploder under enable/disable add-ons but again, no apparent way to activate it. If anyone knows what I'm missing here I would appreciate some help with this. I'll check back later to see if anyone else figured this out. I am using Vista home premium, Firefox 3.x and IE 7.x, in case that makes a difference.

Here's my five cents;

(Not free solution) Internet Download Manager automatically catches any link extension and works like charm if integrated well into browser, so all I have to do is just added FLV as one of its file extension list and it will catches every video I opened there.

(Free solution) For website that can't be automatically caught by IDMan, all I need to do with firefox + download helper extension is just hold CTRL and click on one of the provided link related to the video site and then paste the link into the manual download box. This trick works on any download manager you use.

Convert the file yourself if you need to.

I would like to point out that all of the video-downloading add-ons for Firefox that I know of download the video as FLV format, and it can be annoying to convert it afterwards. VideoGet is able to convert it to many different formats for you.

In addition, VideoGet supports way more websites than any of the add-ons for Firefox.

Users with some knowledge in scripting should know that an URL can be also added to VideoGet batch using right mouse click (a right click to the page is relatively easy task, right click to an URL is much more complicated). Such context menu method is for me more convenient than plugins (in fact, plugins are unusable for me because I'm not an IE nor Mozilla user, except occasionally). I wonder why the author doesn't already include such options?

Nothing wrong with this app that I can see so far. But, if you don't like it, don't download it. If you feel theres a better freeware alternative, fine, use it.
If you can't uninstall it, get Revo. I guarantee it will kill every last trace. I already did it, then reinstalled it because I like & will get some use out of it.
This is an option website where nobody forces you to download, install or try any offering. Last time I checked, it was mostly a free world out there so do whatever you like.
