Apowersoft Video Download Capture

Apowersoft Video Download Capture 2.1

Download online videos for convenient offline playback. (See all)

Video Download Capture is a handy application that lets you download online videos for convenient offline playback. This way, you will enjoy movies and music clips anytime and anywhere you want, independent from an Internet connection. In addition, the program has conversion and editing abilities so you can optimize the downloaded files for your computer media player and devices.

The program is very easy to use. The main functions are organized into three tab-like modules you can easily switch between. The downloading procedure is a hassle-free task. All you need to do is copy the file's URL from the video sharing site you visit and paste it into the program. While the download is in progress, you can check the speed, the file size, and its source at a glance. Furthermore, you can preview your file in a resizable built-in player to check the video quality. The Detect option connects you to specialized video websites. Once a video is previewed, the download starts immediately. Obviously, you can disable this feature if you consider it unnecessary. Unfortunately, you can neither set a bandwidth limit nor schedule the downloads.

The application also works as a converter. Adding the files you wish to convert is done either by browsing for files from within the program or by dragging and dropping files into the app. The output profiles can be selected by file formats and devices. Before enabling the conversion, you can make video and audio adjustments. The embedded editor allows you to trim a part of the video and crop the displayed image, add missing subtitles and text or image watermarks, customize image effects and increase or decrease the volume.

To conclude, the app offers an easy solution to download, edit and convert media files so they can meet your playback needs. The main functions are conveniently placed right there at hand on the main window for easy access.
