Posted November 29, 2012 by . Tool version 7.99 using OS Windows 7 64-bit
Ease of use 9 of 10 Functionality 9 of 10 Value for money 1 of 10 Overall score 7 of 10


I have tried many different video download programs. I wanted to download videos from my countries national TV website, but almost all the programs could not do the job (including FreshDownload). I tested all the programs on YouTube and they could all download.

I was so lucky to find a couple of programs that could do the job though and the best of them is HiDownload! So far it has downloaded everything I wanted, including videos from the TV website :-)

I think that some websites have different cryptic ways of streaming video, that is not standard or "mainstream" ;-) Only a handful of programs are good enough to deal with this :o)

Great programming guys. HiDownload is the best streaming media recorder. I used it with BBC, CBS, NPR streams, or any streaming radio.
I MUST say the StreamingStar guys are great.
Thanks for the streaming media tools.
