GetFLV is a versatile application intended to browse, download, convert, edit, and repair FLV files. The application has an easy-to-navigate graphic user interface supporting various languages and skins. However, in my opinion, it lacks visual unity. For instance, there is not a consistent layout throughout the various screens and even buttons have different sizes and shapes.
GetFLV can help you browse web pages as a standard browser, and it lets you decide on the kernel you want to use (IE, Safari, Chrome or Android). Moreover, it allows capturing video directly from the browser. It also includes an integrated download manager. Its main advantage is that it can rip the actual video URL for you and supports more than 200,000 sites. In addition, you can combine download and conversion operations so that a file is automatically converted to another format right after it has been downloaded.
The application can convert between multiple video formats. What is more, you can use it for basic editing procedures, such as cropping, watermarking and clipping. It can also extract audio from FLV files. Finally, you can also use it to repair defective FLV files.
As it has been previously noted, GetFLV has plenty of features related to FLV files. When tested, it worked as just as described by its developer. In my opinion, just a few changes in its graphic layout could make it a great choice for all users.
- It is easy to use
- It has plenty of features, including browsing, downloading, converting, editing and repairing FLV files
- Its graphic design has conceptual flaws
