Windows Video Downloader is a streaming video downloading solution for Windows PCs.

One of the truly maddening parts about streaming media is that it's hard to save. No one wants to have to go online and find the same stream every time. No one wants to sit through ads and deal with buffering. No one, in fact, wants to deal with the possibility that a stream might be taken down or rendered inaccessible when it is necessary. That's where this Windows Video Downloader comes into play, allowing individuals to download streams from multiple sources and keep the video on their PCs.

This particular downloader works with 100 of the most popular streaming sites, allowing users a wider variety of videos to choose from and download. It boasts relatively quick download speeds and is easy to use, and best of all it provides options to output the video to a variety of portable formats. This is a good tool for those who want to save videos for their mobile devices, and an even better choice for those who don't want to be bothered with streaming at all. Think of this as the new-school version of downloading a favorite television program onto a VHS tape.

This program isn't perfect, of course. It could have a better interface and some of the download options aren't great. It isn't nearly as fast as it claims, and indeed many of its claims about speed and efficiency seem to be nothing more than marketing garbage. If you want to get the measure of the program, try it out with your favorite video. It will let you know if this program meets your needs or if you need to start looking for something more robust.
