streamCapture is a simple-to-use program that allows you to download streaming video from the online environment. It addresses all types of users, whether they have experience with this kind of tools or not.
The installation procedure is quick and does not require any special input from the user. The app is wrapped in a clean and simple interface, where you can use the built-in web browser to navigate online and locate video streams for saving to the computer. The output files shall have the Flash Video format (FLV).
streamCapture doesn't come packed with too many options, and they mainly concern advanced users. It is possible to search in a local file for clips, select the streamCapture or SVT Play webpages and to show the debug text in the status bar.
But you may also get additional information from rtmpDump when downloading, as well as switch to a different language for the UI.
The tool runs on a moderate-to-high quantity of system memory and CPU, and has a good response time. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the app did not hang. However, it crashed a couple of times during our evaluation, when we attempted to open some websites in the built-in browser. Nevertheless, streamCapture is easy to work with, regardless of the user's skill level.
