zoopenhoff: How to capture videos.

Go to
and download extreme download manager (XDM). You can capture almost anything with this and it's free. As it captures videos it will convert them to whatever format you want ((i.e. MP4, etc.) You won't want to be without it.

interesting, thanks

I'll check it out. I use youtube-dl for some things, but it doesn't work on others.

It works if the URL is right.

youtube-dl works if the URL is right. Sometimes the URL for the video is buried in the page as it's loaded and has to be found by inspection using browser dev tools.


XDM used to be good IMO, but a little intrusive. Since it hasn't been maintained since 2018.09.16 it fails to grab a lot of the videos which use newer schemes. One great advantage of youtube-dl is it can be set up to update itself automatically. I get an update ~ every week.
