Replay Media Catcher can help you download clips from various video-sharing sites. Likewise, it can record audio from any online source. The program is very easy to use. All you need to do is to import a URL containing a video and it will do the rest for you. Unfortunately, unlike some other similar tools, there is no built-in searcher. It is good to know there is a help guide where you can find answers to specific questions.
Besides ripping the real URL of the media file and managing your downloads, the program can also speed up the capture up to 10 times the standard playback speed. What is more, if the video is one of those difficult to download, it is possible to grab it directly from the screen. Likewise, it can record the selected screen region. It is also great that all downloads are also automatically added to your iTunes library.
In addition to downloading video and recording audio, Replay Media Catcher can also convert the files to other formats. Some possibilities include extracting audio from YouTube videos as well as converting between audio or video formats. Moreover, if you do not feel comfortable setting output parameters yourself, it is good news there are presets specifically meant to create files compatible with the intended device or player. However, you can still change whatever you think is necessary to meet your exact needs.
All in all, Replay Media Catcher seems to be a good choice when you need to download media from the Internet. However, it is not free from limitations. For instance, it does not support stream captures or tagging MP3 files automatically. Finally, for you to know, there is a similar program by the same developer, called Replay Capture Suite, which has more features but also a bigger price tag.
