A lot of times, once a video is watched online, it is stored in a compressed form in the cache, so it is possible to watch them again, without any internet connection later. Online video players use the browser cache memory to store the video content and this is the reason of a lot of used-up space on your hard disk. You might have probably noticed that whenever you clean the cache of your browser, a lot of space gets freed and this is where VideoCacheView takes the advantage.
How It Works?
A lot of times you have the urge to save a video to your local storage device after having it watched online. If your browser has saved the video file in its cache, which usually is the case, you can download it from the cache using VideoCacheView and save it for offline viewing purpose.
- VideoCacheView will automatically Scan the entire cache memory of all the browsers and allow you to simply copy and paste it into some other folder for playing and watching it later.
- It has an inbuilt extractor that can safely extract and rebuild all the content and provide you a thumbnail view of what has been found in your browser cache. You can choose which ones to copy and save them at a desired location.
- In case you have a media player that can play online .flv files, VideoCacheView can play it directly from the cache of the browser without the need of any internet connection.
