Category:Music & Video
Description: Downloads videos from your favorite video sharing websites, like YouTube. Use only for good, my friends. . .

Please note that the new installer installs to xVST Portable. Go ahead and delete the xVideoServiceThief Folder. If you install to that folder, the installer will delete the old executable for you. Automatic updates are disabled now.

(MD5: c8f22162a3ec86c0a3d1914b62f848ac)

Release Notes:
Development Test 1 (29SPE08): Initial release
Development Test 2:I've taken the liberty of renaming it to xVST Portable
18DEC09 Please Do not manually update to the latest version of xVST. It does not utilize the settings managed by the launcher, but insteads creates info in %APPDATA%.

Finally got around to this one, eh? it was mentioned on IRC a couple of times Blum

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Nah, I mentioned it to John, but he didn't seem to happy about the idea. It may get changed to xVST in the future, but, until then, we'll stick with the obscenely long full name

Yeah, aren't there a few Firefox extensions that do this already? A browser extension is better than a standalone app for something like this, IMO...

Sad You get a .flv don't you? What if you prefer .avi\mp4\wma or don't run FFP )gasp(?

I'm lazy, so I use the Firefox on the college computers. But, I do use xVST.

So far it works well with Vista Ultimate SP1, and leaves nothing obvious behind.

yeah I can see this program being very useful, and who wants to download another firefox extension that may not work with future Firefox versions? I don't install ANY firefox extensions that aren't already included with Firefox, for that very reason.

I only wish there was an easy way to remove the "YouTube" logo from videos without having to edit the videos entirely. I can see this being used only for good, because I have some YouTube videos about what life is like being blind, that would be a great help to put on my website, which you can't do easily without uploading the videos to your webserver directly, so I can see this being extremely useful to me for that reason.

(ok, sorry, didn't know links weren't allowed in sigs, it does not say in the rules, so thanks for informing me.)

I'll do a update in a little bit, maybe this week end (I has a computer back!) so I'll get a new version running and go ahead with the name change to xVST

I think their names cant be generalised so the launcher would have to search for them which is difficult to code I think.

Still developing?

Hi Oliver

I was looking for this following up on a user query and noticed it's not on the test releases page. Are you still maintaining or dropping this?

Sweet Biggrin Version 2.1 is the first non-alpha release (alpha/beta apps wouldn't be able to go official probably), and they're actually up to 2.2 now, which has support for RTMP (Adobe Flash) streamed videos. This is an awesome app, and I actually discovered it thanks to this thread. I'm going to install it locally for now, but hopefully it's not too much work to get it updated. Thanks for the great work Smile

Is anyone interested in updating app?

DamnVid does not work very well, lots of bugs which need the app to restart for it to work.

maybe later

Indeed a good app. Maybe that I decide to develop this app further. But in the moment you can use an other portable version, which will be developed permanently further. You can also integrate this portable version in your PA.com menu. Here is the download link: X-xVideoServiceThief 2.5 [rev12]

easy

Just copy the folder X-xVideoServiceThief_2.5_rev12 into your portableapps folder which usually is X:/PortableApps. You can have other portable apps show up in the platform the same way as outlined on the platform support page.
