editor's review





HiDownload Platinum is a lightweight Windows application designed to help users download streaming video and audio files. The program is able to grab Flash videos, RealMedia audio and video streams, as well as Windows Media, Apple QuickTime and MP3 streams.

It sports a clean and straightforward layout that gives users the possibility to carry out the conversion process by adding a valid URL and selecting the saving directory.

HiDownload Platinum enables you to start or stop the downloading process, and view a list with URLs that were not downloaded successfully due to error problems and a list with the downloaded items.

It is important to mention that the tool offers support for batch processing, which means you can add multiple URLs to the list and download the video or audio streams at the same time.

What’s more, the program lets you convert the grabbed items to the following file formats: MP3, AC3, MPEG, MOV, AVI, WMV, or others.

Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to use the built-in podcast manager for downloading podcasts, and schedule your favourite shows for downloading them at a specified time.

Last but not least, you can configure the FTP settings, integrate the tool within Internet Explorer, select the Windows Media protocols (RTSP, HTTP, MMS) and RealMedia ones (RTSP, HTTP, PNM), create a list with websites, limit the maximum threads to a specified number, insert time and date information into the filename, as well as make the program check for new episodes at specified time.

All in all, HiDownload Platinum provides useful features for helping users download audio and video files from the Internet with ease.
