Replay Media Catcher is intended to download media files or record them directly from a streaming playback. The application supports innumerable video-sharing sites, such as YouTube, DailyMotion, Netflix, Vimeo and MetaCafe. It detects and downloads media in any of the formats available from the site, including high-definition video. Not only that, this tool can also convert the videos you download to multiple formats.

The application has a nice interface, with various tabs corresponding to its various functions. It even has a “small interface”, which is actually like a floating toolbar. The program can download media files if you provide their URL. Yet, this is not the only way to do this, as it also lets you search sites without the need to use an Internet browser. Luckily, it supports downloading batches of files simultaneously and accelerates this process (up to 10x) by using various threads. Moreover, it can monitor media streams playing on your browser and record them for you. You also have the possibility of automatic conversion, which saves you the effort of manually processing each of the files. If you usually listen to streaming music, let us say, from online stations, the application can record and convert audio as it is being streamed without any quality loss. One of the advantages of this product is that it can automatically name media files and even tag them accordingly. Finally, using the scheduler is a good option when you need to record a program that is broadcast at a specific time.

All in all, Replay Media Catcher surely deserves your attention, and, fortunately, there is a trial version with only a few limitations, although it will continuously bother you with registration screens. There are few disadvantages of this program I can think of, one of them is a small loss in video quality, which is quite frequent in all applications of this type. However, if you think this product’s features do not meet your needs, you should know that there is also Replay Capture Suite, a more powerful alternative by the same developer.
