Extract videos from the browser cache and save them to the hard drive
- Works with Internet Explorer and Firefox
- Supports all video formats
- Bear in mind that not all videos are stored in cache
- Browser must be close before extracting latest videos
You can spend hours watching videos on Youtube and other similar websites and having lots of fun, but what if you want to recover those videos later on? Sure, you can always search through your browsing history, but that takes a lot of time and it doesn't always work. That's where VideoCacheView comes in.
It's much easier to use VideoCacheView and let it recover all the videos you've watched online for you. This program analyzes your web browser's cache (from both Internet Explorer and Firefox) and extracts all the video files stored in it. You can then watch them again in VideoCacheView, as long as you have the right player. What's more, the program also includes a link to download the file to your hard drive.
VideoCacheView is great to review videos you specially enjoyed, but it does have some limitations: for example, videos are not always stored in cache while you play them online, which means VideoCacheView won't be able to recover them. Also, if you want to access the latest videos you've watched, you'll have to close the web browser.
- Update for Firefox 13.x with Flash version 11.3.300.257: The temporary flash files are now also taken from acro_rd_dir subfolder under the main temp folder, as well as VideoCacheView can detect the executable file of Flash.
