Graboid-Video is an application that scours the Internet for uploaded content that you can then stream on your computer. With this application, you can download any content. That is, since Graboid is not hosting the uploaded videos, it is not responsible for the content of the uploads. Graboid-Video serves as an intermediary site for content that has been upload by other users and behaves like a torrent site.

You can join for a free trial offer and download up to 2GB without the option of HD content. Once you have exhausted this option, you can upgrade to premium but must pay by the month. The fee now stands at $19.99 and this seems a bit high considering the number of services that are available. In addition, searches online point out there are many customer complaints about video quality and the inability to receive refunds when service is inadequate. It seems that the company has some customer service issues.

Another point of consideration has to do with copyright issues. Since Graboid-Video is only behaving as a facilitator of content, users can upload stolen and illegal content that is without the proper copyright. Users of this app can then download and stream this content. Some of this content is obviously illegal, such as movies that uploaders have recorded in a theater with a camcorder or other device. By downloading this content, users are opening themselves up to copyright infringement lawsuits. While the chances of this are low for simply streaming content, there are legal methods through which one can get content.
