Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


TubeMaster++ is a powerful freeware tool which can capture multimedia files you are watching or listening from your internet browser. As long as TubeMaster++ is running, it will grab nearly every kind of media thanks to its ability to scan the incoming data and not rely on the browser itself. Whether you're watching a video in Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Opera, as soon as you start watching it, TubeMaster++ will begin capturing it. Powerful search engines are also integrated to find videos or audio (mp3) files directly from the software.

Captured files can be saved directly on your computer or converted to other popular video or audio formats (using ffmpeg):

  • audio formats into WAV, MP3, OGG, and AC3, among others.
  • video can be converted into dozens of formats and presets for mobile devices including the Creative Zen, iPod, Blackberry, PSP and PS3, various mobile phone sizes, and more universal formats like AVI and MPEG4.

TubeMaster++ requires Java Runtime Environment and WinPcap (both of which are included in the installation if you don't have them.) and only works on Windows. But it seems a Linux and Mac version is on it's way:

TubeMaster++ is developed in JAVA language so it will be also available for operating systems such as Linux or MAC. Please be patient, i'm working on the Windows version, the multiplatform edition will come next...
