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.

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.

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.

There are so few good apps designed specifically for Mac.. But the Flash Video Downloader for Mac works perfectly with the Safari browser. This product works exactly as described.

What\'s so good about the Flash Video Downloader for Mac is that it\'s an app and not bulky software which can slow down your hard drive. I was skeptical at first about installing yet another software to try to download videos. But, when I found out that this downloader is an app, it just made sense. And, I\'m now very happy with my decision.
