    Rating as a stream recorder - is the rating for recording as many streams as possible. The more audio and video streams a stream recorder can capture the higher its rating. The rating takes into account the most popular stream formats and protocols: the more video and audio streams of the most popular formats can be recorded, the higher the rating.

    • Few programs can download password protected streams and encrypted streams such as RTMPE flash streams that use SWF verification, MoveMedia video streams.
    • You can use screen capture software and direct audio recording software in case of non-recordable streams or DRM protected streams. We strongly recommend you NOT to abuse rental DRM licences.
    • Currently there is no software capable of recording all available audio and video streams (although you can record any video from your screen using screen capture software). If you experience problems, please download the latest version of software. Also try several programs before asking us a question
    • Streaming media recording software should be used as a personal archiving tool only. Make sure not to violate the Terms of the Service (TOS) before making any recordings.
    • It is illegal to distribute any copyrighted materials.
