Video Download Studio is a program with a professional name yet it often fails to fulfill its purpose. It was designed to help users download videos from a lot of video sharing websites. It also converts videos to formats supported by a great number of mobile devices. Video Download Studio was created to download videos from Vimeo, MySpace, YouTube, as well as many other popular hosting websites.
The program proved to be very disappointing while testing it. The first thing I noticed was that its graphical user-interface displayed various buttons (Support, Help) that led to invalid webpages. Also, when attempting to download videos from various websites, Video Download Studio failed to perform that task. I managed to successfully download an YouTube video only once.
The included video converter, on the other hand, compensated for the program’s inability to download videos. It support many video formats, like: MP4, MPEG, MOV, MKV, WMA, and others. The user is enabled to select from multiple conversion profiles that focus on mobile devices (iPod, iPhone, Blackberry, PSP, Zune, etc.) It should be mentioned that the conversion process takes quite a while.
Video Download Studio also includes a video player that didn't manage to play a simple AVI file.
To conclude, Video Download Studio is just another video downloader (like many other available) that fails its purpose. I know from experience that other similar applications can help you download videos for free.
