DAM works best with the popular Firefox and Chrome browser. The powerful tool of DAM--MediaGrabber can capture videos from Firefox and Chrome browser with DAM Extension enabled. MediaGrabber works with any browsers on regular sites.

HTML5 Video Player for YouTube website

On YouTube website, MediaGrabber works best with HTML5 Video mode turned on (please go to, and click "Request the HTML5 player" button on that page) with your browser.

How to play the downloaded videos or music?
  • You DON'T need any media converter software! Don't waste your time in converting your downloaded media files into other formats again and again, all you need is a media player that supports the needed media codec (like MP4, WebM, FLV, etc.)! A popular media player, such as VLC Media Player, is free and will play those media files for you!

  • 1. Other download managers could block MediaGrabber from capturing media; uninstalling those download managers will save your computer and other applications!

  • 2. In order for MediaGrabber to show any grabbed video files, you must select Video type in the MediaGrabber window

  • 3. You may run DAM MediaGrabber before playing media files with your browser.

  • 4. To capture videos from your using browser, you must have proper browser monitoring settings with DAM MediaGrabber. For instance, If your using browser is Firefox, then Firefox option must be selected at Options->Monitoring.

  • 5. Firefox is the recommended browser if you need to download videos from encrypted sites, like YouTube or Facebook.

  • 6. If DAM MediaGrabber misses capturing a media file, you may refresh the webpage and play the media file again, to try to capture the file; or, you may restart DAM MediaGrabber or your web browser to see if this helps.

  • 7. MediaGrabber and DAM are 100% clean tools. Media capturing logic runs only when MediaGrabber runs and stops when MediaGrabber exits.
