StreamDown is a program for downloading streaming media. "Streaming Media" stands for the media that is broadcast through Internet, such as videos and music. The program supports downloads through HTTP, FTP, RTSP, MMS, MMSU and MMST.
You will be able to record streaming media while browsing the Internet. The program has an utility, MSniffer, that detects the URL of a stream being delivered to your computer. You can then use that URL to download the files to your hard disk, in order to save them and play them offline.
Sometimes the sniffer doesn´t detect the URLs. In that case you can copy the URL to the clipboard and tell StreamDown to download the files. The program will then include the new entry in a list of files to be downloaded. You can choose where to store the downloaded file and the name it will have. In the lower panel of the window you will see the download details, such as the URL, server connection and download status. You will then be able to open the destination folder to check the dowloaded files with another program.
