ClipGrab Comments

Limited settings

Positive Comment by bawldiggle
about ClipGrab 10 days ago

To avoid adware ... download from -> Show all download options (link)-> ClipGrab for Windows (panel) ->
- link caption: "here" ... in text: You can download a version with no third-party offers here.

Version 3.6.1 download was clean from developer ... no adware checked with Virus Total

MP4 downloads are limited to 480 pixels, ok on cell-phones but not the best on TV screens
- progress is not very obvious ... remaining % in window title bar ... and ... v.small progress bar in current item being downloaded/converted
- once you know where to watch, its fine

Works where several online capture/converters fail ;)
Definitely a keeper


Don't like the new default crapware bundled with the installer

Negative Comment by Seth
about ClipGrab Jun 2013

The donations must not be cutting it because the current versions of the clipgrab installer bundle crapware add-ons such as "RealPlayer" by default. RealPlayer...really? Who uses RealPlayer In 2013? I didn't even know they were still around.

I like the actual Clipgrab software for the most part but find the recent bundled crapware (selected by default in the installer) annoying and smacking of desperation.
