VideoCacheView works with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla-based web browsers and it copies videos stored in the cache so you can create back-ups and watch them again later.
You can also specify the cache path manually; the scanning process lasts for a few seconds to half a minute. All the videos found in your browser’s cache are displayed in the main window of VideoCacheView and you can play any of the files or copy them to another folder.
In case you are interested in a video file that is not stored in the cache, you can use another option, “Open Download URL In Browser” by pressing F8; another possibility is “Copy Download URL” (Ctrl + U) and the application will download URLs to the clipboard, which you will be able afterwards to use in your browser or with a different download software tool.
VideoCacheView works with Flash video files, too. FLV files are stored in the temporary folder of your operating system, and you don’t have the possibility of copying temporary files to other folders. The file is deleted automatically when you close the Web browser.
It allows you to copy temporary files, too, on condition that you don’t close the browser before you finish downloading.
VideoCacheView is an application which uses a different, ingenious method for downloading video files you have viewed on the Internet; its greatest achievement is allowing you to copy videos from the temporary folder.
You save time because you don’t have to check for videos again on your web browser and you do your job fast and easy due to the application’s intuitive interface.
Changes to VideoCacheView 3.05
- Added 'Manually Merge Selected Files' option (Ctrl+M). If you have split video files that VideoCacheView cannot detect and merge automatically, you can select all items, press Ctrl+M and then VideoCacheView will merge all selected items into one.
- After using the 'Manually Merge Selected Files' option, you can use the 'Copy Selected Files To...' option to generate the merged file. Be aware that the order of the merged files is determined according to the created time of every file.
The greatest advantage of this application is having access to the videos you have watched without having to open your web browser again.
