Jane,
On reading a review of your software it stated the following:-
Cons
It inadvertently changes your default audio device

This is an aspect of this type of software that always concerned me, my audio control is by Realtek which can be an absolute beast when you mess with it.
So my question is, is the above statement correct?

Thank you for the information: installed with no effect on my audio control.
Unfortunately, unable to run in XP SP3 as error message on start that seems to boil down to "unable to load CEFSharp.Core.dll"

Another commenter said:

"Why didn't anyone comment on the 5 minute max record time, plus whatever other restriction was mentioned in the pop-up box AFTER installation? I'm deleting it."

So, is the recording time limited to 5 minutes, or what??

Seb, I get the same plus a bunch of other error text that cannot be copied and pasted so can't provide it here... and I am using 32bit Vista SP2, so NOT an XP specific problem! thankfully it did not overwrite the previous giveaway version but that was only version 2.0.7 and not been used but is still registered.

kc4cop,
The only information from the developer is posted here, and as you can see there has been no response regarding XP installation.
"CefSharp.Core.dll" that seem to cause some problems if you look for information on Google about it.

Nor has there been any information regarding the premature failure of registration of the program from the developer.

Reply   |   Comment by Seb  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Seb, in my case CefSharp.Core.dll fails to load because it fails to load libcef.dll which in turn fails to find some unnamed procedure in something else and so on. I have the Visual C++ redistributables for visual studio 2013 installed so it's nothing to do with missing redistributables. Without any feedback from the developer/support team I see no point in wasting any more time and effort on this one :(

Frederick Dakin, it sounds like something's not working with your copy/paste routine. I was able to paste the email/code and it registered right away. If nothing else works, try typing it because the software is probably worth your while.

Apowersoft & GOTD, thank you for what looks to be a handy tool for multimedia fans!

Reply   |   Comment by Dan  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Frederick Dakin,
After you download the folder and unzip it you will see that the folder contains a "readme" file. Open the file and you will see that it contains an email address and a registration code. When you launch the program click on Register. In the Register dialog box copy and paste the email address you saw in the Readme file. Then copy and paste the registration code from the Readme file. Click OK/Submit and the program will be fully registered.

Can anyone tell me why the screen recording function produces such awful results? The video is extremely pixelated, sometimes making it impossible to read text. I have tried altering the settings to make sure the video looks the best it possibly can (such as 2000kbps, 60fps, Quality Priority, format doesn't seem to matter), but those don't work. I am still left with a garbage video.

But other than that, the installation was nice and easy, which is a major plus on this website, registration was not difficult by any means, and it looks very promising.

Reply   |   Comment by Hooligan  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Okay, so I guess I figured it out, but I'll leave this up in case anyone else has the same problem.

It's just the player that you can use to watch your recordings within the software; it's terrible. The video you saved after hitting the stop button is perfectly normal, but when viewing it with the program, everything is blocky and distorted.

But yeah, don't worry, because your video will look fine if you put it into an editor or watch it with your system video player :P

Perfectly smooth install on Windows 10.
Seems to work great, but how to limit the automatic recording?
For instance, when tried on this url :
http://www.france3.fr/emission/meteo/diffusion-du-20-08-2016-18h40
it records 21 versions of the video, in different resolutions:
256x144 : 4 times
320x180 : 6 times
512x288 : 4 times
704x396 : 6 times
1024x576: 1 time
Is there some setting that can avoid this?

Thank you for this program. Installed fast and easy in Win7.1 64 bit. I have a free one for YouTube videos, but they have stopped working in the past and have to be re-installed. This one is a nice, easy to use and does what I want it to. Great for beginners and those who want a no fuss downloading.

After reading the comments first, I downloaded, installed and registered quite easily on the first try. My better half could not seem to figure out how to do the same process without an intense amount of frustration, so apparently it varies from user to user whether the download of any GAOTD goes smoothly. Eventually he got it registered with some coaching. it took him 15 minutes to download and me only a minute, but he has a computer connected to an institution, so it depends on individual set ups.

I agree with other commenters that some kind of manual or help tips would be a great asset so developers please take note. I don't want to send a ticket to your help desk just to figure out how to do basic operations. nevertheless I pretty quickly downloaded a much coveted french album from the 70s from You Tube that I couldn't download last night with a browser downloader because of the great mystery of add ons working a couple of times then not. Hooray! Next I converted it to MP4 which took about 15 mins (but the album was over an hour long). Success!

I like this program - it downloads media almost instantly and seems to have a lot of options such as editing which I haven't even looked at.

Thanks GAOTD and developers for a strong, useful program right on time, just what I was looking for. Recommended.

I cant put in the registration number into the software
Spent 15 minutes reading comments that dont give an answer to the problem
I sent my email as instructed in the "read me" notepad, and I copied the registration code into the email I sent them.
But now what?
Do I get another email?
Do I now have to enter a new "code"?
This is very unclear and confusing
What do i do now?

Wow this is the best streaming video recorder I have come across. Super easy to install and went to Youtube and was able to record a 20 minutes concert in less than a minute. No issues and video was awesome. Having tried a bunch of downloaders they were tough to use. With this program, just copy the URL, paste into the program ( either click the URL or Ctrl V and it's done. Try it you won't be sorry.

Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Bob, try aTube downloader you can choose the quality of the video or just audio you download, even upto UHD/4K if it's available for the specific video! BTW you cannot RECORD a 20 min streaming video in 1 min or less! you can download a 20min video in 1min or less but you cannot "record it"! that would require an insane frame rate and an impossible sound sampling rate with a 400KHz bandwidth for the audio followed by converting those unlikely data rates back to the proper values for normal playback!

Also,same question as several previous commenters-Does this mess with the Default device settings (RealTek?????)usually one has to create a Restore Point prior to installing the software,and then do a System Restore,just to eliminate all the accompanying headaches that this entails....and that can be a REAL P.I.T.A...(and I wish you would go back to the numbered comment system,too,BTW...)

Hello,

Apowersoft Streaming Video Recorder is a nice piece of software but i have a big problem for the use of it.

I use a firewall (Tinywall) and if i don't open it to everything, no way to download vidéo (Red alert and no downloading 0 % process).

So i attributed rights to
- Streaming Video Recorder 6.exe
then i add
- Apowersoft.Browser.exe

And i try others adds with exe (and some dll) available in Program Files Ashampoo repertory.

No results except if i lock Tinywall off.

So, please, what can i do ?.

What are Ashampoo files and Windows files necessary for Firewall rules ?

Thanks a lot.

Best regards.

Tom

This looks promising but I can't figure out how to use it. We again have a new look UI rather than simple menus. The entries don't have tool tips so I have no idea what 'Detect' means for example.

A trip to the publisher's site had a support / manual page. There is no entry for this product. So no help file. No listing for this product at the Web site and no way to use it that I can figure out.

A waste of my time. I'm glad I didn't retail this thing. I'd move for a refund.

paul,
get the video you want to download up in a window, open the program, hit "Detect" from the menu options at the top, and it will pick up the video automatically and download it.

I had trouble locating where the video was, but nothing that the search button couldn't solve.

I agree, there should be some simple user instructions for basic functions.

Just a suggestion liz but you may have made the same mistake as I did and entered your personal email address iso the GOTD version in the registration dialogue.
>APowersoft
However, haven't been able to rectify this as AVG has flagged up a Personal Identity problem with the file rtmpsrv.exe residing in the Apowersoft directory. I am aware that this file can be used in the detection of rtmp streams but is it safe? Anyone else had this identified by their virus checker?

I've been looking for a program such as this for so very long. Unfortunately, this appears not to be the program that I was hoping for. I would like a streaming program that can capture both audio and visual streams at a specific time and duration. I have come close in my quest, but always finding the software lacking 1 or 2 items. Thank you for letting me try your software.

Tried past versions and can confirm those hijack your Realtek audio driver and replace with their own buggy one.
Warning - this affects your other software.
The number of video codecs was limited. You cannot add new ones of your own to use with this software.
The video codecs included with the software were lousy.
Although the rep says they have fixed the audio driver hijack problem; will not take the risk with the new version.

Torrey Parshall, the 5 minute restriction is because it runs as the trial until you enter the registration code, which is in the readme file, it only applies until you cut and paste it, presumably about 20 seconds later (remembering to use the gaotd e-mail address from the readme too, not yours).

Couldn't install it in XP but had no difficulty doing so and registering in Windows 7.

Looks like he was possibly downloading from the BBC Iplayer but not really sure, but then not really sure of anything when I'm in Windows 7. I really do hate being out of XP is like being in a comfortable old shoe.
Any help appreciated.

Quite a number of people have complained that the program will probably become unregistered quite quickly.

It installed no problem on Windows 10 Anniversary Edition (64bit)
One thing does concern me though. I checked in the setting numerous times, and could not find a toggle to turn off automatic updates.
How long will this install last? If it updates, is that the license invalidated?

This is my sixth "Apowersoft program. They're all good. Love "Phone Manager". I used it yesterday to add some new sounds to my phone "Notifications" folder.

Jim , You read my mind-I doubt it does,but maybe the RTMP detection WILL work,but it seems all the major streaming services change their streaming protocol quite frequently,just to annoy and frustrate us,lol.Unfortunately,I STILL have not been able to find much that works on the aforementioned streaming services,except,perhaps,something like Movavi Screen Cap,but it eats up resources,and generates tremendous file size.Some of the streaming recorders will record nothing but the commercials......!!

I rarely give kudos to giveaway of the day downloads. However, this team has put together a beautiful product. It helped me on a vimeo project this morning already...fastest download I have ever experienced. Thumbs up from Wisconsin.

I bought this earlier this year, version 5, and it worked well, though would not update to version 6. I therefore download this version 6 without deleting my version 5 (pro), and the new version installed fine, and on keying in the GOTD email and serial key, it has registered to me, (Brian).
I am not complaining as it is a good program, but strange how it wolf not update version 5.
Well recommended, the recording quality is very good in my opinion, and seldom will not download a video, though I do not try to record stuff I should not.
Nice to have the latest version, so thanks to GOTD and Apowersoft

Thanks for this program... Is it any timelimit for how long after I can reinstall it and active it again and can I reinstall it on another computer too? And what are diffrent between this and a screenrecorder?

ComputerMan,

Typically, any program offered via GOTD can be installed ONLY the day of the giveaway and will not be vail for installation afterwards.

ScreenRecorder typically does not "rip" video and audio from various websites.

I've been using v5 for some time. Best of all streaming capture programs I've tried. When all else fails, screen capture is there. I'm curious to see how v6 is.

Installed OK on W10 64 bit.

Started with few simple copy and paste downloads from youtube and as soon as you paste the download and conversion happens automatically and the outputted files are encoded very quickly

If you are copying a Youtube video that is part of a playlist then it automatically asks you if you would like to add any others and you can select individually or pick the select all button.

Went to various other sites and turned on detection and found that it worked well on some sites.

Decided to try it on iPlayer but not surprisingly would not detect any video streams.

I have to say that after just 10 minutes play it was easily worth the download and whilst I can't give a 100% thumbs up in terms of value form money at this point, based upon the fact that some of their other screen capture and screen recording offerings work just about perfectly, I have high hopes for this.

Apowersoft do seem to be a vendor that does produce consistently good programs, so that has to be a bonus to people that would think about parting with their money, especially with the wide choice of offerings out there.

Is there a fix.

Is the screen recording function 1. A screen shot records or 2. Records a video of screen - say for demo of a software.

Hi everybody. :)

The "Streaming Video Recorder" webpage needs to be updated:
- system requirements are missing; i.e., what windows versions could run the software?
- windows 8.1 and 10 aren't even mentioned in the "what's new" section.

Given the previous comments and the "what's new", it seems this doesn't work in windows xp, windows vista, windows 8.1 and windows 10.




This should mean it works on windows (I could have skipped some versions):
3.1
95
98
me
2000
2000 server
xp (NO sp, sp1, sp2, sp3)
xp 64bit (NO sp, sp1, sp2, sp3)
vista (NO sp, sp1, sp2)
vista 64bit (NO sp, sp1, sp2)
7 (NO sp, sp1)
7 64bit (NO sp, sp1)
8 (32/64bit)
8.1 (32/64bit)
10 (32/64bit)
2003 server
2008 server
2012 server

I have quoted this before the windows versions listing, but it didn't appear: Windows-based software: Compatible with all Windows versions with 32 and 64 bit.

Does this software capture streams from Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon for replay?

Reply   |   Comment by mws  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

mws,
Not sure about this software but there are other applications available that do, but they will provide a popup indicating something about stealing. (RipTiger is one example that has the ability but gives the notice I mentioned.)

I would not suggest ripping from Netflix, Hulu or Amazon as that would be considered theft of intellectual property / piracy. Hope this helps.

Daryn,
It's the old VCR issue. As long as it's for personal use and one doesn't share it one should be okay. But if the program doesn't even allow for it then it's a moot point.

Reply   |   Comment by Michael Summerset  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Michael Summerset,

I agree that it's not piracy in that its file sharing but almost all movies and programs streaming these days have a precursor that does say unauthorized reproduction is prohibited. That has nothing to do with sharing. That is my point.

The old VCR issue technically was still illegal but just not enforced.

Works well as a YouTube downloader for resolutions higher than you're usually allowed to download (just the first thing I tried), so thumbs up and thanks to APowerSoft!

Just a passing minor bug report (not a negative worth noting). When I changed the Download folder (Win10Pro) I used the "Make New Folder" button to make a folder called "ApowersoftStreamingVideoRecorder" however the program used "New Folder" instead, which doesn't exist as the rename did happen. Okay I tried this a second time and I see what's going on, if you type the name over "New Folder" and click OK it renames the folder but uses "New Folder" in the program (although it no longer exists), if you hit return on the rename and then click OK it's fine. This probably needs fixing but isn't a big thing.

Carrying on it that vein: do note a lot of the English strings in the Convert Settings dialogue are truncated (specifically the first three check-boxes).

Finally after eight downloads (all successful) I find I have the cache folders - in {download dir}\cache\{file name} - for two of them left behind, even after exiting the program (containing two temp files each, presumably video+audio). Worth checking if you download big files as could eat a lot of disk space over time.
