Kastor All Video Downloader 4.97.0
Find, download, convert and play videos with this all-in-one tool

Kastor All Video Downloader helps you to find and download videos from all the main video sharing websites.

You can use the program as a simple browser. Point it at YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, MyVideo, Metacafe or any of the other supported sites (there are around 280, including some adult sites), and you're able to search as normal. Once you've found and are playing something you want, click Download, and the program will grab a copy and convert it to a more useful format (AVI, WMV, iPhone-friendly MP4 and so on).

Alternatively, click "Search Videos" and you're able to run a keyword search across the main video sites (YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, MyVideo, Metacafe, and optionally AdultTube.tv if you like). A report gives you any matching videos, including their title, description, and upload date, and all you have to do is check the boxes of the movies you need, click Download, then wait for the videos to arrive. There's no control over the resolution you're getting, unfortunately, but it is at least very quick and easy.

We did spot a few issues with Kastor All Video Downloader. At one point we started getting error messages while trying to download from YouTube, for instance. Why? Suddenly we realised the browser was now displaying an HTTPS link, and it seems the program couldn't handle that: switching to HTTP made everything okay again.

And there's an annoying restriction with the free Kastor All Video Downloader, in that you can't specify more than five videos to download at once. Videos aren't automatically removed from the download list when you've got them, either, so to grab more movies in the current session you have to take them off manually (that only takes a click, but it's still irritating).

If you're only likely to be downloading a few videos in a session, though - and you don't mind having a program around which can search adult sites - Kastor All Video Downloader could prove a useful tool: it's likeable and easy to use.

And if you're willing to pay $19 for an upgrade to the Premium edition then you'll benefit in various ways. The annoying download limit disappears, the program will be able to grab up to 20 videos simultaneously, you'll gain an option to convert videos to MP3, and there's an option to search and watch many more adult websites. Click "Premium Version" in the program to find out more.

Please note, the program attempts to install the Babylon Toolbar during setup, so pay close attention and clear the relevant checkboxes if that's not what you want.

Verdict:

Despite some notable flaws, Kastor All Video Downloader's likeable and straightforward interface means it could still be useful tool for finding and downloading videos

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.
