Question

i have an imac and when trying to convert video from facebook it will not convert. Does anyone know how to get this to work? It worked when i first installed the software but my hard drive crashed and i have a new hard drive so i am starting all over to get my applications to work. it mentions something about opening the web browser but safari is open as i view a video from facebook but the convert function is not picking up the video stream. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

well the videos on vixio did convert. the weird thing is that i use to be able to convert videos off of facebook with the toast software but after my hard drive crashed and i installed a new one i cant get it to work now. is there a default somewhere or a program that can be installed so the facebook videos can be converted? thanks for your help.

Toast remembers if it has already captured a video and won't do it again. I presume you restored your data to the new hard drive from a backup. In that case I suggest selecting Flash Player in System Preferences and deleting the local storage of info that Flash keeps on each video you play. I'm not certain this will restore this feature in Toast but it is the only thing I can think of.

Sounds like a well-appreciated project. I don't have any first-hand experience with other web video capture apps. I suggest going to macupdate.com and doing a search and reading user reviews.
