VideoCacheView
Copy downloaded video files directly from your IE or Firefox cache

VideoCacheView is a simple tool that can create local copies of some of the videos you watch online.

In theory, the program sounds quite straightforward. Just watch the video in your browser, as normal, then allow VideoCacheView to scan your browser cache (IE, Chrome/ Opera and Mozilla-based browsers are supported), locate any videos and copy them to another folder.

In practice, it's not always so easy. Timing is important, for instance. If you watch a Flash (FLV) video from a site like YouTube, for instance, then it'll probably be deleted when you close the browser. So if you want to keep a movie then you must run VideoCacheView after it's fully downloaded, but before you shut your browser down.

And if you want to save a video that's been cached by Firefox in the current session, then the story is very different: you must close your Firefox windows before running VideoCacheView, because Firefox maintains its cache in RAM, and only writes it to disc when closing down.

There are some complications, then, but you'll soon get the hang of how everything works, and overall VideoCacheView is still a very useful tool for anyone who regularly watches plenty of online videos.

Version 2.96:
    - Fixed bug: VideoCacheView 32-bit failed to read the cache of IE11 on 64-bit systems.

Verdict:

VideoCacheView provides a quick and convenient way to save online videos, and it's portable - unzip it to a USB flash drive and run it almost anywhere

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+)
• Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+)
• A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
