Web Video Downloader you always wanted to get. Acquire online video or live TV from any Web site to your PC.

RipTiger is a product which focuses on downloading video from any web-site. What separates it from screen capturing products, is that it actually downloads the video instead of recording it from the screen. This way, the downloads get completed quickly, without quality loss and without the need to keep them open in the browser.

It supports most of streaming media formats:

Flash Videos ( both HTTP and RTMP)

Windows Media

Real Audio

Real Video

MPEG

QuickTime

Shoutcast

RipTiger downloads high definition video data and saves the original data exactly 1:1 on your hard drive. No quality loss in audio or video.

RipTiger is well known all over the world. It has won many awards. Thousands of forums and blogs recommend it for it's rare conjunction of clear interface and intelligence under the hood.

Many comparisons show that there's no other software with such intelligent protocol database, hence there's no sense in searching for an alternative.

RipTiger is intended for all types of users watching online video and live TV.

"Almost perfect web stream ripper but lack of customer service drags it down"

RipTiger is a convenient piece of software for ripping web streams and converting to other formats. The UI is pretty clean and easy to use/understand and the fact that it does the ripping/conversion automatically is nice. Its also very fast. Unfortunately, lack of documentation (specifically formats it won't rip) and absolutely NO customer service really drag down the overall score on this application.

For instance, I went to a NBC.com to see an episode of The Singoff that my wife and I missed. After clicking on the episode, RipTiger proceeded to start ripping the web stream (including the ads which their marketing says RipTiger will skip using some type of ad detection algorithm). Once the actual episode started though, RipTiger stopped ripping/converting video. Again, the webpage marketing brags about being able to rip ANY web stream. I think to myself "maybe I need to enable some setting or something". Searching through the limited settings dialog didn't turn anything up so I email customer support. No word within 24 hrs. Email again. No reply. As far as I can tell, the product is great if it does what you want out of the box. If it doesn't, don't bother trying to get help, once Softonic has your cash, they cut and run and don't care about you anymore.

Its really too bad as this application is already very good and on the cusp of being great. If 1) They could just publish a list of stream types that RipTiger can't handle and 2) Customer support actually contacted me back I'd change this rating to an 8, but I have to knock off 3 stars for those reasons.
