I like to download online videos and always would like to watch them on computer, Media device and even on my mobile phone. I have been using some free tools and Browser add-ons but sometimes face difficulties to download online videos or even a part of them that interest me more. Some would also like to record online courses important for their academic life and many shares cartoons with their kids. How to make all of these possible?
RipTiger is an online video downloading program for Windows OS. The software has different editions such as, Basic, Full, Ultimate and Media Suite version (comparison details can be found here http://www.riptiger.com/editions.html). Installation is easy and no reboot is required, there is a system tray icon with right click options. When you launch RipTiger for the first time you might get a message inviting to download RipTiger Extras which include additional codecs for conversions by RipTiger plus K-Lite mega pack to be able to playback the downloaded video in Windows Media Player without encoding.
The interface of the recording software is simple, it is divided into two portions the left part is for the available features and the right is to monitor the progress of downloads. You are suggested to head over Settings screen to configure RipTiger the way you want.
Do notice that AnyMedia Player is automatically installed with RipTiger on your PC and this let user to watch all videos downloaded with RipTiger, you can uninstall it easily.
RipTiger is advanced and comfortable online video downloader. Setting Automatic Video Downloading On will grab online videos and download for you automatically and in batch mode. You have the option to stop or to delete the files you do not want.
RipTiger also offers Basic Video Ripping and Advanced Video Ripping (More info: http://www.riptiger.com/using_riptiger-how_to_download_video.html). Advanced Video Ripping option is available only in Ultimate edition which helps to download videos from sites that cannot be downloaded without this feature. You can test it in the trial version by going to the settings window and activating or deactivating “Enable Advanced Ripping”.
Advanced Video Ripping fact list:
- Advanced Video Ripping only works for videos opened in Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, 8 and 9.
- Advanced Video Ripping downloads are designated by a Flash icon with a camcorder.
- With Advanced Video Ripping, videos are captured as they are streamed to the browser. The video must not be paused / stopped and the browser window must not be closed until the capture process is complete.
- If you want to download multiple videos simultaneously via Advanced Video Ripping, open each video in a separate Internet Explorer window. Multiple simultaneous downloads will not work properly if the videos are opened in separate Internet Explorer tabs.
- With Advanced Video Ripping, you can record parts of the video by using the “Start Recording” and “Stop Recording” buttons. Place your mouse over the video to reveal the buttons.
RipTiger captures Flash Video (HTTP and RTMP), Windows Media (HTTP, MMS and RTSP), Real Audio and Real Video (HTTP and RTSP), MPEG, QuickTime and some Streaming MP3 (Shoutcast). RipTiger downloads videos from practically any major web-site, with only a few minor exceptions. During my short test I was successful with Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, TED, Bliptv, 5min.com, Blinkx. To get the entire catalog of supported sites visit this link (http://www.riptiger.com/riptiger_sites_catalog.html). RipTiger downloads videos in the same quality / source that you are watching.
