original.jpegDear Lifehacker,
I watch a lot of online video, and it's great when I'm actually connected to the internet, but sometimes I want to finish what I'm watching somewhere Wi-Fi or cellular data doesn't reach. Is there a way I can download videos from YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, etc., so I can view them offline?

Online Video Addict


Dear OVA,
Yes and no. Many online video sites operate on a streaming model so you can't just download the video file to your hard drive. They do this because the offer ads, or want control over when and how you watch the content. While you're breaking the rules by downloading from services who try to prevent you from doing so, it's understandable if you just want to finish watching something when you don't have an internet connection. There are ways you can do it, and some methods are better than others. Let's take a look at the most popular online video sites and look at your options.


How Can I Save Un-downloadable Online Video Content to Watch Offline?Downloading from YouTube used to be as simple as clicking a button. Video files used to be exposed. You could just find their URL and download them. Unfortunately that is no longer the case, but that doesn't mean saving a YouTube video to your hard drive is impossible. Adapter is a great free audio and video converter for Windows and OS X that also happens to have a YouTube downloader built-in. In fact, it can often recognize video from most other video sharing sites so long as they use Flash. You just enter the URL in Adapter's built-in browser and it'll recognize the video content. The downside is that you'll generally have to let the video play through for Adapter to capture the entire thing. This isn't a big deal, however, as most web content is fairly short and you can just mute your computer and do something else while Adapter handles the job. What's even better is that Adapter will convert that video for you when it's finished, whether that means a standard MP4 file for your mobile or an MP3 version of a music video. It's pretty much the easiest way to handle the job if you want to save Flash content.


How Can I Save Un-downloadable Online Video Content to Watch Offline?Vimeo is a friendly video sharing site that often lets you download its content without any trouble. Right below the video, you'll often find a download button and the option to download your video of choice in multiple formats. Vimeo leaves the choice of whether or not the download button is available to content creators, which is pretty cool. It's a little less cool when content creators don't allow downloads, but that's up to them. If you just want to watch their video offline, Adapter can pull it down for you, too.


How Can I Save Un-downloadable Online Video Content to Watch Offline?Hulu makes its money off of advertisements, so downloading its content without watching those ads is a little questionable. If you're just finishing up a TV show or a movie on a train ride home or while you're on an airplane, however, you have a somewhat more justifiable reason to take the content offline. Awhile back we recommendedHulu Video Downloader for the job, but people have had mixed success and it hasn't been updated since late 2009. More recently, How-to Geek posted a Hulu downloading process. Like Hulu Video Downloader, this process is Windows-only. All you have to do is downloadRTMPDumpHelper and RTMP Dump Toolkit and extract both zips to your desktop. Take the files from both extracted zips and put them in a single folder. From there, run RTMPDumper and open your web browser. It'll "attach" to your browser so that when you visit Hulu, it shoulder intercept the video stream (or, technically, the RTMPSuck tool will do this). You'll have to wait for the video to finish before it's on your hard drive, but just like with YouTube you can mute the computer and do something else while the process completes.

Netflix (and Anything Else)

How Can I Save Un-downloadable Online Video Content to Watch Offline?Netflix videos are a bit harder to download, but like any other site it can't stop you from recording your screen. If you want to save a Netflix video for later viewing, get a great screencasting app, set the recording area to the size of the video window in your browser, tell it to record only your computer's audio, and record until the part of the video you want to save has completed. Then you can watch it later whenever you want.

Like all of these methods, none are perfect. They all involve waiting to save the content, and that's generally pretty annoying. If you want to save an un-downloadable, streaming video for later you're going to have to plan ahead a little and wait. That said, there are few situations these days where internet access is sparse. In most cases you will be able to watch online the way the sites intended. For those exceptions, you can use the tricks above to save some video for later.


Source from: http://lifehacker.com/5924824/how-can-i-save-un+downloadable-online-video-content-to-watch-offline?comment=50850662



From Blogger: The “great screencasting app” is a $199 video recorder, but you still have to wait till the end to get the video being fully captured. Then why not consider some free video recorder? Such as  Any Video Recorder?

As we all know, all the movies or TV shows from iTunes are protected by the DRM and in M4V protected format. Full-length purchased movie, TV shows on Apple iTunes store can be saved and played on 5 different devices at a time, while the rental M4V files can be viewed on a single device within limited time. Once the rental period expires, the movie will disappear automatically from your iTunes library. That really sucks when you want to watch the movie for more times.

Then what shall we do to remove iTunes DRM and convert m4v to mp4 for playable on any devices for a longer time?


Of course we could use the expensive video converters to remove iTunes DRM. But did there has some free software could achieve that? Any Video Recorder is a good choice, it could record EVERY DRM-protected iTunes movies & TV shows, and save them to the commonly used MP4 format.

How To Record DRM-protected video from iTunes

The following steps will show you how to break the limitations of rental or purchased DRM movies and convert them to unprotected file, so you could play your movies from iTunes store freely.


STEP 1. Click Here to download, install and run Any Video Recorder.

any video recorder-copy-1



STEP 2. Define Proper File Directory and Video Name.


STEP 3. Customize Output Video Quality by checking video bitrate and framerate.




STEP 4. Click Record Now button to start recording videos.

-- Play the purchased or rental iTunes video you want to record, the program can detect the recording area automatically and mark it with red rectangle. You can also click on select manually button for adjusting the wanted area to create your own video tutorial. Click REC red button to start recording.



STEP 5. Click the red stop button or press hot key Ctrl+F7 to stop recording.

-- After video recorded successfully, there will prompt out the output file folder to show you the recorded video. All the recorded videos will be saved as MP4, which are compatible with iPod, iPad, and iPhone, Android Phones, Tablets...

You can save and transfer the recorded iTunes videos to any devices for enjoyment now!


Knowledge of iTunes DRM M4V Video

M4V video format is developed by Apple and is very close to the MP4 format. The differences are the optional Apple's DRM copyright protection, and the treatment of AC3 (Dolby Digital) audio, which is not standardized for the MP4 container. M4V files are opened with the iTunes player by default while MP4 files are opened with QuickTime player by default.

M4V video files containers are produced by Apple, and for iTunes TV episodes, music videos, and feature length movies. The M4V files format is based on the MPEG-4 AVC video codec. To play a protected M4V file, the computer needs to be authorized (using iTunes) with the account that was used to purchase the video. However, in some cases unprotected M4V files may be recognized and played by other video players by changing the file extension from ‘.m4v’ to ‘.mp4’.

free audio clipsWhen I was 14 years old, I bought a CD full of sound effects. I paid good money for it, too. The CD included around 20-30 sound effects of everything from a baby crying to ocean waves, and I would pop it in my CD player and listen to the sound effects. That’s about all I could do with them, except for recording them onto a tape, maybe. So why did I buy it? Because sound effects are awesome, and you never know when you might need them.

If you like or need to use sound effects, things look quite different now. Today you can find hundreds of good-quality sound effects for free, just by searching the right websites. Do you need sound effects for a prairie dog in a blender? No problem. You only need to know where to look.

Below you will find 5 great resources where you’ll be able to find almost any sound effect you can think of, available for immediate listening and download. As always, don’t forget to read the terms carefully for each website to make sure you know exactly what you’re allowed and not allowed to do with the audio you download.


free audio clips

FindSounds is a great source of free audio clips, and offers pretty much anything you can think of in terms of sound effects. All you have to do is search the vast database. You can screen your results by file format, number of channels, minimum resolution and minimum sample rate. The website is also available in several languages, including Spanish, Chinese and Russian.

If you’re looking for sound effects on your mobile device, you can try the mobile version of FindSounds, or the FindSounds Android app. Once you find some sound effects, you can listen to them or download them to your computer. You can also tweet them or email them straight from FindSounds’s interface.



free audio clip url

FreeSound is an online community dedicated to sound effects and audio clips. Users who register with the site can download clips from the huge FreeSound database, as well as upload their own audio clips. At the time of this writing, FreeSound is experiencing a temporary email problem which is preventing users from registering, but hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

Even without registering, you can explore the vast FreeSound database by searching for keywords or through tags, and filter your results by file format, sample rate, bit depth and number of channels. Each audio clip also includes detailed licensing information.

FreeSound is also a community, and as such it boasts a busy forum where you can posts requests for specific sound effects you can’t find and ask any audio related question you might have.


Sound Jay

free audio clip url

Sound Jay is a smaller database, but is a good source for free sound effects you might not find anywhere else. The site is not searchable by keyword, but you can easily find what you’re looking for by browsing the 10 available categories. You can listen to each sound effect before downloading, and then download it as either Mp3 or WAV file.

There’s no filtering options provided, but since the database is not too large, it’s not a major issue. Aside from sound effects, Sound Jay also includes some royalty-free free music tracks you can download and use.



free audio clip url

AudioMicro is a stock music library which also offers a large collection of sound effects you can download for free. The library includes over 2,000 free sound effects, ranging from animal sounds to musical instruments and science fiction sounds. You can browse the collection by category or search by keywords, but note that searching tends to bring up paid options rather than free ones. If you browse the free categories manually, you’ll be able to stick to the free collection.

An account is required in order to download sound effects, but you’re able to listen to each one before you decide. If you don’t want to create an account, you can log in using Google, Facebook and others



free audio clips

With thousands of free sound effects and music tracks, FreeSFX is another great place to look for free sound effects. There are hundreds of categories you can browse through, including whole categories for crashes, public places, sports and more. Alternatively, you can search for effects by keyword. An account is required in order to download files.

Could You Not Find What You’re Looking For?

These 5 websites together offer a huge amount of free audio clips and sound effects. On the off chance you still couldn’t find what you’re looking for, be sure to check 5 more great websites for free sound effects.

Video editing sometimes become very money consuming due to need of expensive video editing software, large disk space and computer with high performance graphics. That’s the reason, yesterday, I listed ”10 Best And Free Online Video Editing Software” that allows you to work within the browser to cut and edit videos without having too much knowledge of video editing.

But what when you don’t have any access to the internet or your internet connection is slow which doesn’t allow you to open these free online editing services? In this situation, many video editing software comes in rescue that are available to you for free download.

 Yes, there are lots of free video editing softwares that are available on the internet but all of them are not good to use. Since, I am a lot into editing videos due to my professional needs. I believe that I can gather some best video editing software which you can download right away and use for editing videos. These software are mostly compatible with any version of Windows and allows you editing, encoding, merge or split videos, add special effects like 2D and 3D effects, audio enhancements and much more.



1) Windows Movie Maker 2.6 :

Microsoft has made version 2.6 of Movie Maker available for download, and it runs on both Windows Vista and Windows 7. While advanced users are likely using a more sophisticated video editing program, there’s no denying that Movie Maker is an excellent, full-featured option for the average home user.



2) VirtualDub :

VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms (98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7), licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).  It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video.  It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters.  VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.




3) T@b ZS4 Video Editor :  

ZS4 Video Editor is free to download and use. It is video editing and compositing software which aims to provide media experts with a facility to combine a variety of media types(currently photos, videos and audio files) into one or more output files.


4) Wax :

Wax is a high performance and flexible video compositing and special effects software. The idea for Wax is to be very general purpose and flexible in video compositing and effects, so that you can compose your dream video sequence with ease everytime.Wax can create 2D & 3D special effects and can work in two modes – as a standalone application which would appeal for home users/beginners, and as a “plug-in” to video editors/NLEs which would be more useful for professional editors.



5) Cinefx Jashaka :

Cinefx is an offline playback, editing, encoding, animation and visual effects tool based on the Jahshaka technology that allows you to create professional digital media on your desktop. Use the tools that hollywood uses to create blockbuster films and special effects.



6) Blender :

Blender is the free open source 3D content creation suite, available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License. It is one of the powerful, multi-use editing/compositing and modeling tool. This tool allows you to edit, create 3D graphics, sound effects, add special effects and much more.



7) Avidemux :

Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting.



8 ) MovieStorm :

  I’ve got a huge passion and interest for portable apps. I’m a bit of a hoarder and collector, and the idea of being able to download a little piece of software and take it anywhere with me, forever, is one that pleases me very much. I’m pleased even more so when these applications help me customize and manage my OS of choice, Windows.

In this post, I’d like to introduce you to three different softwares that will assist you in managing your Windows system in keeping it neat and clean, saving and customizing configuration profiles, and navigating to folders quicker and easier. All three of them can be tossed into a Dropbox folder or on a flash drive, as they are all portable.

Quick Clean

portable apps

Quick Clean is one of many awesome applications developed and released by The Windows Club. Quick Clean works for all versions of Windows Vista and 7 and acts as a more complete way to clean your system of temporary junk files.

Windows’ built-in cleaning utility is the Disk Cleanup tool. From the simple interface of this application, you’re given a shortcut to immediately run that.

outstanding portable apps

The Clean more junk files button is the main and only function of this program. Clicking that button will delete all of the following files from your system:

  • *.tmp
  • *.temp
  • *.chk
  • *.old
  • *.gid
  • *.nch
  • *.wbk
  • *.fts
  • *.ftg
  • *.$$$
  • *.err
  • *.—
  • *.~*
  • ~*.*
  • *.??$
  • *.___
  • *.~mp
  • *._mp
  • *.prv
  • *.sik
  • *.ilk
  • *.aps
  • *.mcp
  • *.pch
  • *.$db
  • *.?$?
  • *.??~
  • *.?~?
  • *.db$
  • *.^
  • *._dd
  • *._detmp
  • 0*.nch
  • chklist.*
  • mscreate.dir
  • *.diz
  • *.syd
  • *.grp
  • *.cnt
  • *.~mp.



Quick Config

outstanding portable apps

A week ago I did an article on Startup Selector, an application that will allow you to save configuration profiles of your Windows startup. Quick Config is a very smiliar application that complements Startup Selector very well, as it allows you to save a configuration file of just about everything else other than your startup items.

In the screenshot above, you can see I’ve created a startup profile named “Test”. You can have as many profiles as you want, all switched back and forth with a simple click. You’re able to configure things like your default application handlers, system power scheme, browser settings, desktop resolution, and more.

outstanding portable apps

In my opinion, the best feature is being able to create a list of enabled or disabled services.

QuickWayToFolders is a great way to create easy access to Windows Explorer folders that you’re always accessing manually. Many of us have Documents folders or external drives that we’re always in and out of, and QuickWayToFolders will allow you to navigate to or browse these folders through the system tray.

Upon first running the application, you’re shown the options. A folder for your desktop has already been created for you.

portable applications

In your system tray, you’ll notice the icon for your desktop folder. Clicking on it will show the desktop folder in a desktop view.

portable applications

There are plenty of different shortcut types that will allow you to change the actual view of your shortcut folders, some more suitable for certain folders than others. I’d recommend playing with all of those menu types.

Your available options per folder are pretty extensive also.

portable apps

QuickWayToFolders is a tool that can save you a lot of time navigating through Windows Explorer. I’ve found it to be an incredibly useful piece of software.

Which of these three portable apps is the most useful for you? Do you have any other portable Windows apps you want to share with us?  Let us know in the comments!
