It is a simple freeware application focused to individuals and students for personal, private and non-commercial purposes, this application is a download manager that helps you to backup videos from social sites like Dailymotion, MySpace, Yahoo, etc. to play back them offline and export them to many formats (MPG,AVI,MP4,3GP,3G2,WMV,PSP,MOV,FLV) with the quality that you choose, you can encode your videos to standard formats as DVD,VCD,IPOD,PSP, etc. Supports "Authentication" in YouTube, so you can backup private videos (of course, if you have athorization) and or videos with adult content.
How it works?. aTube Catcher is a small web browser, it enters to a Website, interprets the content and when it finds one video instead of download and playback (like all the other web browsers), it just downloads in the directory that you have previously selected after that, it converts your video to the format requested.
Do you have FLV files on your disk (downloaded with other tools for example) or videos in other formats waiting to be converted to 3GP,3G2,MPEG1,2,3,4,DVD,VCD,IPOD,WMV,XVID,AVI,etc?, and you hate to convert one by one?... copy the path's to a simple text file and open it with aTC, it will process and recode all that files.
To protect copyright holders, aTube Catcher doesn't support secure/ciphered protocols (including RTMPE) and it doesn't has support to decode/decrypt protected content by any DRM security measure.
Comes with a Flash video (FLV) player and a new tool called Smart Media Hunter that allows you to download your favorite comic and fun videos from a hundred sites, including TV commercials**, and all completly safe and free. There are of course more features that you will notice while you are using. If you want to know more about Smart Media Hunter click on that button inside the Main Menu.
Not only you can export the videos from Dailymotion, MySpace, etc, also you can convert/recode any video or FLV (downloaded from other site or with other software) to the mentioned formats. aTube Catcher also can download and encode any FLV if you provide him with the direct link.
You can set the encoding options such as size, framerate, aspect, video codec, fileformat, audio codec, audio sampling, quality, motion search, etc. Now includes Batch file processing, just paste the links in a plain text file, and aTube Catcher will download all the videos to the specified folder, you will not have to wait one by one anymore.
It is recommended download the additional package MPlayer to view the output videos, if you download that package you will need DirectX, Windows XP includes it but if you have an out dated version of Windows (like 98) then you will need update your DirectX.
