True enough but the Opencandy installer and code is not the problem.
It is the way that it offers random un-checked extras, which they have no control over the design of
This allows many authors to hide or obfuscate the option to not install.
I had to stop using the installer version of Imgburn because Opencandy would keep presenting options I could not opt out of.
After a few attempts I would get all offers with a way to exclude, and finally install.
(My tip: get to 1 you don't trust. Quit and try again)

The browser plugins I use can also download all the sizes of MP4 and WebM available and all the separate OGG and AAC audio tracks, plus way more useful overrides and enhancements.
The funky extras would be things like the ability to skin youtube and use the alternative EU servers.

Top choice with ESET, and why Opencandy randomware is not a problem for you

Mashups ? Smells like a lot of "Fishy Business" to me.
