WebVideoCap v1.41

Checker on 22 Mar 2014

WebVideoCap allows you to capture Flash video format (.FLV) files and RTSP/MMS video streams downloaded in your web browser. After the entire video file is downloaded and played by the Web browser, the video file is saved in the folder that you selected, and save and to play offline. The program can capture the video files of most popular video-sharing sites, including YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video, iFilm, Metacafe, Putfile etc.

Note: You can use WebVideoCap under Windows Vista with SP1, but you must download and install the WinPcap driver, and select the WinPcap driver as the capture method, so it is functional but not portable.

I thought software that facilitates the download of youtube videos was illegal?

Use a web-based downloader such as: http://keepvid.com
I works great with youtube.

larry: I wish techcrunch would take that to a lawyer. Nobody accepts a user agreement / terms of use to use Youtube so you can't be in violation of one if you didn't agree to it. They got a cease-and-desist and panicked because, you know, its Google.

@the_watcher - I'm on Win 8.1 and don't use Windows Explorer that often so I can't really verify. I use CubicExplorer.

billon: updated, thanks

Does anyone know of a way I could use this as a replacement "Sendto" menu. There's no software I've found that can do it. I would love to make my Sendto menu more portable when reinstalling Windows.

Used this program to successfully extract keys from an older backup of the Registry hive files. Followed an online guide which recommended it since it automatically tweaks the exported key file with the correct path for importing into the registry.

@jimdorey: I'm a little confused why we had a listing that this works with Win10 -- it really doesn't. When this version of the program stopped being developed, Win7 wasn't even out yet. Anyway, I recommend trying another software package for that OS. I've updated the entry.

joby_toss on 2016-06-02 11:49

@jimdorey: v5.3 works fine on my win 10 x64 using a 1080p screen resolution. Maybe you're using a high DPI screen/4k monitor, and only the last version (8.4, payware, but worth every penny) works fine in that case.
