Capture4ME is a lightweight, easy to use application for capturing video. It allows you to easily view and capture video from digital TV tuners (ATSC, DVB, etc), specialist component/HDMI capture devices (like Hauppauge HDPVR & HDPVR2), Copy-Freely devices (like Hauppauge DCR-2650), or from analog devices (*).

Capture4ME does not attempt to be an all-encompassing multimedia center or video editing suite. Instead we've focused on providing a great user experience for the simple task of watching and recording video feeds. That said, if you're looking for an all-encompassing multimedia center, we've got one of those too - head over to http://www.nextpvr.com.

The Capture4ME player has the ability to trim the beginning or end of a recording, and also an 'Upload to YouTube' function for those that want to share their videos online.

You can download Capture4ME from http://www.capture4me.com/C4MESetup.exe.

For those that prefer not to install applications, you can download the application from http://www.capture4me.com/Capture4ME.zip, and extract the files to a writable directory or thumbdrive, and simply run the capture4me.exe to start the app.

A full license for Capture4ME costs US$20. Without having a license installed, recordings are limited to a maximum of two minutes.
