Ant has proven itself for 2 years Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Yes, the ANT downloader is great. I've used it for about 2 years now. During this time it ran in IE7 and while IE7 seem to fight its very existence (it even blocked access to the support site), I stuck to the ANT because it worked like a charm.It downloads everything you throw at it (almost). This is my first week with FF4 and I hope the new dynamics create an even better experience. Thanks for the best piece of software since the beginning of flv.
Also Re: Player & tummychow's comment: : You can access the vids with other players (I use MoviePlayerClassic) by going directly to app data/local low/ant.com and play vids directly from there (use shortcut). NOTE: if you move videos from this location it messes up the player.
