If you are looking for an easy way to search through several video websites at once from your desktop, then take a look at an app that does an excellent job. Ashampoo’s ClipFinder HD allows you to search and download videos from popular video sites right from your desktop. ClipFinder HD gives you web video the way it should be. Search in up to fifteen video portals (including YouTube, Yahoo Video, Vimeo, Spike, and many others) at once or in selected portals, view videos directly and convert and save them to your hard disk with a single click. If you’re a fan of online videos, you will no doubt love this freeware.
To find any video, simply type in a search term or terms, and you’ll see thumbnails of the videos at each individual video site. You can make the thumbnails larger or smaller for easy browsing. Click on any video and you’ll view it, inside Ashampoo ClipFinder HD itself, so you won’t need to jump to a browser or separate application.
There are a lot of nice extras in Ashampoo ClipFinder HD, including the ability to only search for videos in high definition (HD) format – hence the program’s name. If you’ve ever wished that you could save a copy of a video you found online, Ashampoo ClipFinder HD is the best way to do it. Organizing your saved clips is just as easy. Just define categories, put your clips in them and navigate them in the 3D Video Wall and organize them by dragging with the mouse.
Ashampoo ClipFinder HD is free, but will work for only 10 days unless you provide your email address to vendor Ashampoo. If you provide your email address, you will be sent a key that can unlock the program so you can use it for free permanently. It works with XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
