How to Capture Hulu Video
Hulu is one of the most popular streaming video-on-demand websites in the USA. Recently we were trying to determine what kind of software can actually capture Hulu movies and TV shows. Googling for capture Hulu video you might be totally lost in streaming video downloaders. Each software company claims they know how to capture Hulu video, but the number of working applications seems to be very limited indeed. Some of downloading softwares are pointed to download the video directly from the website to your computer as most YouTube downloaders do. Others are focusing on video picture when you watch Hulu video and merely record it. The first technology is more preferred as the video comes with original quality and picture resolution. However the second one is more reliable.
Replay Video Capture is the software to capture streaming videos and it can be used for Hulu either. Prior to video recording, the program requires audio setup. For Hulu video capture, firstly you need to mark the region of the screen where the video is using "Get Window" option. Then click "Record" button to start. In the result the program produces watchable Hulu downloads in WMV or MPG video format. Unfortunately this technology has some disadvantages. In case your Internet connection is slow or interrupts, each time the recorded video turns jerky. Another lack is the output video resolution limited to the playback window size that you capture. However, Replay Video Capture software can be the way out when there is no chance to download the particular video losslessly. This is a great application mainly to capture the screen as a web monitor to record user activity.
Another software solution to capture Hulu movies using screen capture is RipTiger. RipTiger is well-known application to download from dozens of video sharing sites like YouTube, Yahoo, CNBC, Daily Motion, ESPN and many others. However to capture Hulu shows it still uses the screen capturer. The major advantage of RipTiger is that software grabs any video in background mode. No user attention and extra clicks are required at all. Let's wait for them to add fully functional Hulu support.
The software products that can actually capture video from Hulu losslessly are Hulu Downloader and Hulu Video Downloader 3.30.
And finally the editor's choice – Hulu Video Downloader 3.30. To our surprise, this is a freeware application and it actually works. The software interface is extremely clear and user-friendly. To capture Hulu video free, simply copy and paste the video page URL address into the program and click "Start" button. In the result, the desired video will be downloaded and saved to the output folder in AVI, MPEG4, WMV or FLV file format. The cons of Hulu Video Downloader can be the lack of features and slow 1X speed downloading Hulu videos. But do not forget, this software is absolutely free. BTW, we were able to install Hulu Video Downloader even on Windows 7 64-bit without any compatibility issues.
