Editor's review

A browser for the Video web, search, watch and download all the videos that you need from Youtube, Google Video, Yahoo Video and more.

Pros: As its name suggests this is an explorer (i.e. a browser) for tube type applications. The word “Tube” used to be shorthand to describe a TV set but now has grown to include any type of video content, especially video content on the Web (think Youtube). The Tube Explorer is a tool that has been designed to enable users to browse, search, and download videos from Youtube, Yahoo! Video, Google Video, MetaCafe, DailyMotion and many many more. It also gives you the ability to save the downloaded videos in a host of formats including 3GP, 3GPP2, MP4, MP3, WMV, AVI, DVD and more. It also allows you to convert between these formats. Additionally it allows you to split a given video into smaller videos and join smaller video fragments into larger files. Batch downloads can be initiated with just a single click.

Although the interface needs improvement it conveniently displays videos from different websites in different folders, in a folder pane. Showing easy to see screen-captures in the main browsing pane and has its own player on the lower left which is a big convenience for people who don’t like to have other player’s loading time slowing them down. The downloaded video manager is a one stop shop for managing the downloaded video content (i.e. copy, move, sort etc.).

Cons: The main limitation is that the interface is a little unattractive. Although one gets used to it over time, it needs sufficient improvement before users who like a certain look and feel to start using it full-time (especially in the Vista era).

Overall: 4 stars. Great idea and it works.
