Finding and watching movies online is an activity that attracts more and more users, reason enough for developers to bring about dedicated applications that can facilitate the access to such resources. Among the top choices in its category, VidMasta tries to go one step further and provide a bit more than search and view functionality.
A comprehensive program, that packs a lot of features in a rather simple interface, this particular software is all about motion pictures, television series and fast downloads. The lookup feature offers users the ability to choose beside the title, a specific type, rating, release date and also choose the genre. All these criteria work together to bring about the results that are closest to the user’s needs and preferences.
The video quality is also taken into consideration, thus allowing users to choose among 1080 HD, 720 HD and DVD, or simply combine all of them and view all available videos. A neat feature of VidMasta is the ability to offer a quick link to the summary of each title as well as an available trailer for the selected movie.
When it comes to saving videos on disk or watching them online, the application is able to supply several sources, provided that more than one are available. The ‘auto-downloading’ feature of VidMasta adds a plus in terms of functionality and further enhances the ease of use. The program can use an external downloader, or the one that’s built-in the app.
Insofar as the file types that can be handled with this utility, there is a dedicated area in which users can specify the extensions that are allowed and those who are restricted from downloading.
All in all, VidMasta puts up a good performance and thanks to a decent feature pack it manages to offer its users pretty much everything needed for finding, saving and viewing movies and TV shows with just a few clicks.
Watch or download movie and television titles in any format (TV, DVD, 720p, 1080i/p) with as few as two clicks of the mouse. The first click is to hit the search button. The second click is to hit the download button.
