YouTube is a great source of music and videos, but if you want to listen to or watch anything you’re going to need an internet connection. If you stumble across something you would like to watch time and time again, TubeBox can be used to download anything you would like to keep and even convert files between formats. YouTube is far from being the only supported streaming service, as you can also use TubeBox in conjunction with Metacafe, DailyMotion and much more.

Unlike some video downloading tools, TubeBox does not require you to use a web browser – it is a standalone program that takes care of everything for you. The search tool can be used to track down what you are looking for, and the drop down menu enables you to choose from one of the many supported sites. If you’re interested in quality, you can limit search results to HD video or even only 3D files.

A preview window lets you check the videos before you download them and a simple series of buttons can be used to download the video in its native format or just rip the audio to an MP3 file. If you intend to watch the video on a smaller screen device, there is little point downloading the full resolution version of a video. TubeBox includes a conversion tool that enables you to optimize footage for playback on different devices.

There are a couple of issues with the program. Large portions of the installer are in German which does not inspire confidence and then there is the issue of the Babylon toolbar. If you have progressed through the installer and started to filter out the German, it’s all too easy to accidentally install this. Add to this the TwitTube addon, a coupon program, and a music app, there is scope for all manner of unwanted software to find its way on your hard drive.

Verdict:

Impressively simple to use, this is a great alternative to browser based download tools, but you need to take care with the unwanted extras.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
