I've never heard of it.
For at last 3 years now, however, I've used the payware Replay Media Catcher
with great success.
, the maker of RMC, has proven themselves to be a leader in this area, and their software is well known and well respected.
You can buy it for $39.95 from them directly at: http://applian.com/download-videos
In the few instances that it fails (very rare), I'm able to use the freeware URL Snooper
, to sniff out the URL and manually download the video.
For Hulu downloading
, you'll need to use the dedicated freeware Stream Transport
, which is also able to capture videos from some sites. It's not as reliable as RMC, outside for Hulu. See http://www.streamtransport.com
For Youtube downloading
, and some of those other "viral video" type sites, I find it easiest to just use the free KeepVid service
which gives you a download link to save the video. See http://www.keepvid.com
Between these few tools, I'm never left unable to download clips.
I'll contact the maker of Total Recorder, High Criteria, and see if they want to submit a full copy for our review. (We don't review trial copies -- there's really no point in that.)
