    "YouTube support removed! Adware/Malware added!"

    February 4, 2013  |   By natergator

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 2.2.6

    Pros

    Flash Video Downloader used to be an easy & safe product to download flash-based videos embedded into various websites.

    Cons

    They've secretly slipped Adware/Malware into their product (Superfish "Featured Shopper"). Flash Video Downloader obviously tracks your browsing history (that's how it know's when there's a flash video available to download)... who knows where your browsing data is going now that they've got AdWare/Malware involved.

    Also, Flash Video Downloader recently removed support to download YouTube videos. (I suspect Google/YouTube probably forced that change for copyright purposes.)

    Summary

    With Adware/Malware added to the product and YouTube support removed removed, I suspect most users will no longer find this product helpful or safe to use.

    "UTOH. They added MalWare"

    January 24, 2013  |   By lordbear

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 2.2.5

    Pros

    I had this installed for a few months. Worked fine on a number of sites.

    Cons

    As of the last update they added a new piece of crapware. When you are on certain websites, like shopping, you see a new miniwindow hovering over items. It's trying to get you to shop other sites, and so on. I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out where this was coming from. Not in Control Panel > Programs. Not in Chrome Extensions. Not in the Options in any extension. It was not easy, but with enough Google searching, and by recalling seeing an extension update for FVD recently, I nailed the culprit. Uninstalled.
    NOTE: This addition piece of software is HIDDEN. It cannot be uninstalled separately (by usual means). THIS IS WHY THEY LOSE ME.

    Summary

    FVD has made a major mistake. FORCING people to put up with crapware is a bad practice. I also hate forced bundle installs of crapware, but if you give me a way to cleanly uninstall, I'll get over it. But, when you hide it so I can't get rid of it, goodbye.

    "Solid Addon, But Ads are a Dealbreaker"

    December 22, 2012  |   By th-nk

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 2.2.2

    Pros

    -Effective on most sites
    -Easy to use

    Cons

    -Inserts ads into google searches, possibly more, as of a recent update. This is absolutely unacceptable.
    -Doesn't work on all flash videos, and cannot download certain quality videos from youtube.
    -Opens tab after updating, which is done silently, interrupting browsing.

    Summary

    This was a good addon, and I was very happy with it, however I will not put up with advertisements being inserted into pages. Greed is bad, yo.

    "Maybe ok for others, not for me"

    October 16, 2012  |   By Steve923

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 2.1.4

    Pros

    1) The list of sites it advertises being able to download from is impressive!
    2) Review by CNet very positive.

    Cons

    Tried on YouTube and another site and did not work. For both sites a small window appeared under the icon when I clicked it. That window disappeared after a second. Said something about "Request sent" (Some details) then "Received Answer".

    I suspect that if CNET gave it 5 stars that it does work, at least at the time CNET tested it. It's quite possible that with extra time I could get it to work, but I've already invested over an hour doing initial research and installing it.

    PS - I have a concern about why this Chrome Extension is not available from the normal source that most others are available - the Chrome store. I suspect there is a good and logical reason but I wish that reason was explained somewhere. If this extension had not been reviewed by CNET, I would have concerns about the security and reliability of this extension and would never have downloaded it.

    Summary

    Never worked for me so I could have rated 2 or 1 star, but I chose to not put more time into attempting to debug. Maybe it's fine and it's a problem with my computer or setup. I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt rating it 3 stars.

    "Great tool - works with youTube"

    October 6, 2012  |   By polaatx

    Version: Flash Video Downloader for Google Chrome 2.1.4

    Pros

    It works with youTube.
    Developer answered requests for help.

    Cons

    Can't see any.

    Summary

    For some reason many downloaders no longer work with YouTube, probably because google changed system to prevent downloads. This one works just fine. You get a download button directly under the video and get choose what quality to download. Kuzma Safonov patiently answered my requests for help until I figured out how to install extension directly, without going to Google Play. Thank you.
