Free Media Catcher is a download manager that automatically captures all the streamed media you come across while browsing the web.
After installing the program – which includes WinPcap – simply launch your browser and Free Media Catcher will detect and download any media file (FLV, MP3, MP4 and more) streaming from the website you’re currently visiting. The program works with all popular sites, such as YouTube, Dailymotion, Megavideo, Vimeo, MySpace, Songza and Last.fm, among others.
Free Media Catcher can be minimized to the system tray, from where it does its job in the background. The only time you’ll notice the program is working is when it displays a small desktop notification after finding new media to download. The configuration settings in Free Media Catcher let you set a minimum size, so that the program doesn’t download everything!
Free Media Catcher works fine, but lacks advanced tools you find in other similar programs, like a built-in converter. Also, the included player was a bit buggy and didn't play all the videos we downloaded during our tests.
With Free Media Catcher you can easily download all the streamed media you come across while browsing the web.
