I was wondering if there are any recommended programs that can obtain the video, photo and audio files directly from web-sites? I also looked at some of the files in the download section. There are a lot.
I have seen a lot of programs that convert the files first. But a site like youtube has webm files. I would want to convert those after. Or a site like yahoo.ca/.com video has streaming files and I am unsure what those are (I looked at the html and it said m4v videos in some instances. So it's usually mp4's of some type.
I have tried Open Cloners Stream-Cloner. But there was issues with my computer and errors, or the program closing for no reason. I stopped and uninstalled. I have heard of 123copydvd's Stream Rip and Record.

Hi. Thanks for the information.
I noticed a thread talking about RTE RTMPE Ripping (How to rip of RTE player). These were the links I noticed in the html.
So, I would prefer if I could load a program that will automatically look for me, such as what was recommended. But if using the command prompt or script programs better? I am willing to learn and will look at what else is in this thread.
I would prefer the original files and convert them myself after downloading. But how do these streaming methods work? What is the original source file? Can anyone tell? Or is everything just proprietary and each web-site/streaming server selects the output format?
Is there anything not so common or newer like the webm file type? It is but is not really used as a video file outside of youtube as far as I know. Are there any players that support it or use the file as is?
