Free Video Catcher 2.0
Automatically download web videos as you watch them

Free Video Catcher is an easy-to-use tool which aims to automatically download online videos as you watch them.

There's no messing around copying URLs from your browser, then, or otherwise switching between applications. Instead, once Free Video Catcher is running, it monitors your internet connection looking for videos, and captures a local copy of anything you might watch.

The authors say the program works on all the main video sharing sites (Youtube, Dailymotion, Megavideo, Vimeo, Google Videos, MySpace, veoh, Songza, LastFM, Jiwa...), and that was our experience. We had no problem capturing videos, and these could then be launched from within Video Catcher, or you might open its temporary video folder to access the files as normal.

And if you're only interested in music then you can switch to an "Audio" mode, and have the program only capture the soundtrack of each video.

One small down side with this approach is that the program will probably capture more videos than you intend, or really need. And this may also be an issue if you're a little short on bandwidth. We switched quickly across a series of videos on Youtube and Free Video Catcher wanted to download all of them, in full.

If you're careful when you use Free Video Catcher, though, this shouldn't be a problem. Simply leave the program off when you're casually browsing, turn it on when you know you want to capture more interesting videos, and it should save you a great deal of downloading time.

Verdict:

A simple tool which makes it exceptionally easy to download clips from all the main video sharing sites

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.
