VideoCacheView automatically scans the entire cache of Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge, Mozilla-based Web browsers, Opera, Chrome-based Web browsers and finds all cached media files.

For video, if you have a player that is configured to play FLV files, it also allows you to play the video directly from your browser's cache.

  • Fixed to detect and merge the current video links of YouTube. Also, fixed a bug that caused VideoCacheView to include text or xml file related to the video stream inside the merged file, causing the merged file to be corrupted.
  • See the 'YouTube Videos' section for more information about working with YouTube files.

juvera: there's a version with install/uninstall support but the other one should be portable... should we retest?

Its worth noting that this also finds and allows extraction of Audio files (since version 1.40). Very nice

It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

It's not stealth. Where the files or regs stored?
