Graboid is an application for streaming and downloading video. Its servers host over 150000 videos of movies and TV shows, updated regularly and each available for up to 240 days.
Users have to register, which is just a case of giving an email and user name, then you're off. Graboid claims not to infringe any copyright laws, although it's worth noting that as it lets you download full and recent movies for free, users should be careful what they are using Graboid for.
The range of shows and films available is impressive, and the streaming is good, although it tends to make the program lag a little. Downloading video is extremely fast, basically as fast as your connection will allow.
The video player in the browser is slow in general, but any downloaded content can be played in outside Graboid, so that's not a huge problem. The free account is limited to 30 days and 4 gigabytes of downloads. After this it's necessary to sign up for paid account to continue usage.
The program is easy to use, but suffers from slowdown a lot, which can result in accidental downloads, if you're impatiently clicking while Graboid catches up with what you're doing. Downloads we tried were about 90% successful - occasionally some failed to open after completion.
Graboid is an interesting service which is mostly let down by the application's slow speed and the issue of whether users are acting legally by downloading content from it, although the downloads are impressively fast.
