I'm currently using the trial version of iskysoft. It says that it will take three hours to convert the video to an MP4 format. Was still take that long once I purchase the real program?

Flash video downloader for Mac is the best way to download flash videos. And, that\'s good since running Flash videos online with my Mac always causes lag. Playing these same flash videos offline in a desired format requires no buffering as it would online so I can watch with no lagging or stops.
Bethany
I like how you can use this software on either Mac or Windows PC, as I have both versions. Do you know if this software works on Chromebook? I\'m planning to get one of those soon, too.
Charlie
The first time i tried this software, it didn\'t work. But that was only because I had not started playing the video on the page. Apparently it detects the video once you click the play button. Once I reread the instructions it was very clear what I was supposed to do. And, I\'ve had no problems with the software since.

Normally, we have to download adobe a flash video downloader to help you download flash for Mac. But i think most of softwares won\'t work fine. Here the powerful Flash Video Downloader for Mac is strongly recommended.

After trying another software on my Mac and being disappointed with the results; a friend of mine recommended the Flash video downloader for Mac (also known as the iTube Studio for Mac). This software is just what I was looking for.
