Overview and Use

Replay Media Catcher for Mac is an easy, yet powerful way to capture video and audio files from thousands of web sites as they play in any web browser. These files can be transferred to smartphones or tablets, burned to a CD or DVD disc, or incorporated into other programs like Keynote or video editors.

Replay Media Catcher locates the web address of the media file, reconnects to the host server, and makes an exact copy of the file on your Mac. Typically, this download process is much faster than actually playing the file. Replay Media Catcher also can make multiple simultaneous connections to further speed up the capture process. For example, download music from Pandora and videos from YouTube at the same time. Once the download process starts, you can close the video or audio player, and the file will continue to be captured.
