Video Download Capture is a software that can detect, and grab videos from online hosting sites. The software comes with a built-in screen capture to record videos and capture screen activity. You can convert, edit and add effects to a video as well.

The software features one of the best interfaces that I have seen in a software. It is modern and intuitive. To download a video from an online website, simply copy and paste the video URL in the software. You can download videos from a number of websites including popular ones such as YouTube, Vimeo, Vevo, Dailymotion, TED, to name a few. If you’re unable to download the video through the video URL, fear not as this program has a browser that can detect video streams playing on a website. The software will automatically detect video streams most of the time and will require little to no effort from your side.

So what happens in case neither the built-in browser nor the video URL works? The answer is screen capture. With screen capture, you can either record the entire screen or choose to record a section. This means you can record the screen as the video plays. This feature is helpful for creating video tutorials, sharing gameplay or for creating a video of any activity on your computer’s screen. This program also features a capable video player. You can use it play any of the videos you have downloaded, recorded, or converted. I found the player to be able to play most formats.

Video Download Capture also has a full-fledged video converter. The converter supports all major formats such as AVI, MKV, HTML5, FLV, MP4, 3GP to name a few. I noticed while testing this software also lets you convert your video clips to create a GIF as well. If you want to extract audio from video files or convert video into audio format, that is also possible. Prior to conversion, you can also edit your videos to add effects, watermarks, stamps and trim videos.

To sum up, Video Download Capture is what the name suggests, an all-inclusive software to convert and download videos, and capture screen. I recommend this software to anyone in need of a powerful video tool.
