Eltima Software’s VideoDuke 1.0 (https://mac.eltima.com/video-downloader.html) is a new app for video downloading on a Mac with only a URL at hand.

It can download video files from a variety of popular websites directly to a user’s hard drive. The app also offers downloading of streaming videos. Support for streaming videos means one can save live streams of sports events, video games, educational programs, etc. on their computer. 

VideoDuke operates at a good speed rate with high-quality results. The application offers a convenient option of bookmarking favorite content for quick access at any time.

VideoDuke can download videos embedded via HTML5 and those streamed over RTMP. The app can operate in two modes: simple and advanced. Simple mode is “laconic,” only has a handful of controls to allow for quick and easy downloading in the least amount of clicks. 

In Advanced mode more complex options are available. The app will display all resources fetched from the web page including the video itself, audio, Flash animation, images, etc. If you need to download any of these, you can do so by clicking the Download button next to each item. 

You can switch between the tabs of the app to filter the content you are interested in. If a video has subtitles or closed captions in different languages, you can save them to your computer along with the video. The subtitles will be downloaded as an SRT file that can be played by the majority of video players or embedded, depends on the original type.

VideoDuke offers a convenient option of bookmarking favorite content for quick access at any time. By integrating VideoDuke with your web browser you get to download videos even faster: whenever you see something worth saving on your Mac, click the app bookmark to initiate the download.
