Designed to make online video downloading, recording, and conversion an easy and attractive task for all types of users, Apowersoft’s Video Download Capture is capable of detecting and grabbing video from hundreds of websites in the most straightforward way. And for those remaining sites that do not allow downloading, this app comes with a powerful recording tool that will let you capture any streaming video.
Its elegant interface is clean and intuitive. You can paste as many URLs as you wish, and let the program manage all the downloads for you. The list of websites supported is exhaustive, and it includes all the most popular ones, such as YouTube, Vevo, Vimeo, Dailymotion, and hundreds of others. You can use your favorite browser to find videos for download or click on the “Detect” tab to open the program’s own browser and navigate directly to one of the most common online video sites. Videos transferred via HTTP, FTP, and RTMP are also supported, and many of them will be detected automatically by the app and consequently downloaded without further intervention on your side. Video Download Capture also offers you a built-in player where you can watch any of the videos downloaded, as well as a Library tab with recommendations of recent and popular videos.
The Record tab will take you to the program’s screen recorder. This utility is useful to grab streaming videos whose websites do not allow for download and to create high-quality videos of any activity on your screen, such as gameplays or tutorials. You can define the area to be recorded – a specific region, the entire screen, the activity around your mouse or any images coming via your webcam. You can use this tool to record audio only, and save your recording as an MP3, AAC, Ogg, WMA, WAV, or FLAC file.
Last but not least, the Convert tab will take you to the program’s media conversion utility. Here you can convert video and audio files between formats or extract the audio of your favorite videos. The formats supported cover all the most popular ones and others not so well known. You can tell the program convert as many files as needed, though all of them will be re-encoded to the output format or profile selected. A basic video editing tool will let you personalize your videos before converting them, adding stamps and watermarks, clipping your favorite scenes, and tweaking some of their light-related parameters.
