I recently received an e-mail from Sothink Software announcing the release of Web Video Downloader, a $19.95 add-on for the Firefox browser. According to the announcement, the program provides the following features:
- It allows you to quickly capture and download Web videos and Flash files from web sites.
- It can capture and download a wide variety of different formats, including flv, swf, wmv, asf, avi, mov, rm, rmvb, streaming Flash videos, embedded Flash videos, Flash files, Flash games, etc.
- It can capture and download videos from sites such as YouTube, Google, and video blog downloader.
- It includes a free FLV player so that you can easily play FLV videos offline.
I have had good luck with other Sothink products, so I purchased Web Video Downloader, and I’m happy to say that it works as advertised. If you download videos, even occasionally, Web Video Downloader should make the process easier and more enjoyable. You can learn more about the product and download a free trial here.
