Save web videos while playing them on your browser

There are several ways for downloading web videos from sites like You Tube. You can save videos locally by using software tools, browser add-on or manually. Here is a very tiny program (31.1Kb) from Nirsoft that lets you save videos on a folder locally while playing them on your browser.

WebVideoCap is a portable tool and is very simple to use. You only needed to click on the ‘Start Capture’ button in the application’s interface to capture the video. There are only a few options to select like Capture buffer size, scan method (Raw sockets and WinPCap) and save folder location.

WebVideoCap [via - ghacks] works under Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista systems. It lets you capture Flash video files (with .flv extension), Microsoft Windows media files (with .wmv extension) and RTSP/MMS video streams.
