RipTiger is a no-fuss and very easy to use tool to capture web video. It's one of the most powerful video capture tools I've come across - because it supports both URL type sites like YouTube and streaming video sites.
The RipTiger web video capture screen
RipTiger provides very quick downloading and supports a huge variety of sites like YouTube, Google video, mySpace.com, ESPN, TVShack.net, etc. You can also upgrade to the Ultimate package to convert the downloaded video to ipod, iphone, AVI and Windows media.
2. Flash Converter 2
Flash Converter 2 is a solid software for capturing web video. It comes with lots of output options, easy to use interface, plus support for Intel core 2 processors. However, I dislike the fact that you can only use URL input only when capturing web video. It does support a whole host of sites though - from YouTube, Google video, mySpace.com, Metacafe.com, Dailymotion.com, etc.
3. SoThink WebVideo Downloader For FireFox
Nice and free. It however comes with only limited functionality. Although SoThink WebVideo Downloader supports a wide range of video sharing sites, it is quite tricky to configure. I had a hard time downloading files from their host site to get my version to work.
4. Replay Media Catcher
Replay Media Catcher is a nice tool to capture web video but a tad expensive compared to the rest in this list. Its an easy to use live recording type of application, with nice built-in converter options. A large range of sites is also supported.
There you have it, 4 of the best tools to capture web video. If you ask me, I think RipTiger is the best among the list and I'd highly recommend it if you need to save web video on a regular basis.
