RipTiger is a sophisticated tool that allows you to download and convert nearly any online video from websites such as YouTube, Dailymotion, Hulu, and MySpace. The program implements three innovative video catching technologies that allow you to download virtually any online video that you can watch in your screen. Besides, you can convert a downloaded video into multiple output formats at once.
RipTiger, however, doesn't simply record online videos from your screen, like many other similar tools do. Rather, RipTiger downloads the actual video files from the websites, which offers you several advantages, such as keeping the original video resolution and quality. The program is even capable of downloading HD videos with high-quality audio, and can preserve the original quality settings. Moreover, this tool can convert the video files you download, so that you can play them offline on your PC or any portable device with video playing capabilities.
The program features an "automatic downloading mode", which downloads any playing online video automatically. Alternatively, you can copy the video's URL and paste it into the program, and it will browse and play the video for you. Apparently, RipTiger always needs the online video to be playing in your browser to be able to start downloading it, but once the process starts, you can close your browser's window. RipTiger is capable of detecting and downloading multiple online video files simultaneously. It will keep the original video title and will use it to name the file once the download has finished. This is a helpful feature, rarely found in other online video downloaders.
Finally, I will mention that there are several editions of RipTiger available. The price for the Full edition is $29.99, and you will need to pay $34.99 if you are interested in the Ultimate edition. You can also opt for a $9.99 monthly subscription, which will give you all the functionality available in the Ultimate edition.
