DownloadStudio

  • Generic Company Place Holder DownloadStudio

Among other tasks, DownloadStudio solves a common download problem: how to download streaming video files from sites like YouTube. Simply enter URL, tell the program to download the video files, and it goes about the job.

Want to download podcasts? It'll do it. RSS feeds? Yes, that as well. You can even download entire Web pages that contain specific keywords, and search results from search engines such as Google and Yahoo.

There's only one drawback to this program--its price. There are download managers that are free, and DownloadStudio costs $35 to register. But other download managers are designed primarily for files, not media, RSS feeds, and podcasts. So whether you want this program will depend on the kinds of files you commonly download.

Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
