Vidzy is quite a catchy name for a program that enables you to watch YouTube videos without actually visiting the website. It is actually a very good concept, but, alas, Vidzy has been classified as a potentially unwanted program that you ought to remove. The application would be useful if it worked, but it does not and it is not surprising when we know that it has been developed by an unreliable software developer. Furthermore, this program can collect information from you and might even show you commercial third-party ads. If you do not approve of that, then you should get rid of this application and be done with it.
The way Vidzy ought to work is pretty simple. The user interface is conveniently located at the bottom of the browser window. It looks sort of like a banner, which is quite bulky, but can easily be retracted to the left of the window. At least for the time being the application does not work, which is a pity, since we could not check if this application is any good or not. But let us assume that it is good and that you can watch videos and listen to music without ever visiting Youtube.com. However, having a YouTube tab opened is not a huge problem for most, so its usefulness can be debated.
The final blow to Vidzy’s credibility is the fact that it has been developed by an unreliable software developer known as Bitcocktail Ltd. the cyber security industry regards this developer as unreliable, since it has released various bad tool bars and potentially unwanted programs in the past. For the full list of currently active applications, please refer to its website at Bitcocktail.com. Vidzy distributed using its aforementioned website Vidzy.me, but we have received unconfirmed reports that it might also be bundled with freeware and put up for download on websites, such as Softonic.com, Softpedia.com, and so on.
All in all, you can use Vidzy if you insist, provided that it actually woks. However, adding this additional functionality to your browser does not really improve browsing experience, since having a Youtube.com tab open will do the job just as well and most likely even better. I you have decided to remove Vidzy, but do not know how, please see our manual removal guide instructions below.
