This program incorporates three interesting features in a single interface. First, it can download online videos from sites like YouTube, Google Video and more. If the program is open, it can detect and download automatically any web video when you open the site; that is, you don't need to copy/paste the video's URL as in other programs. The second feature is screen recording: you can select the part of the screen you want to record and start-stop recording using hotkeys. This feature is useful for creating video tutorials and other educational and entertainment materials. Finally, the program can convert downloaded videos into several different formats, such as AVI, MP4, 3GP, FLV and more. You can also perform video searches directly from the program's interface, and view any of the found videos in a built-in video viewer.
Although there are programs that perform these tasks, this is one of the few that incorporates all three functions; so it can be a wise purchase.
There are also Pro and Pro+ versions of the program. The difference, besides the cost, is that Pro+ can record streaming audio.
