Now You Can Grab Any Audio
or ANY Video from Any Website!
NO MORE EXCEPTIONS
Here are few example sites from where Download Surgeon can grab audio or audio

T
he WWW is an almost unlimited source of audio and video files. Most of the time, playing a file from the internet is fine. You watch it or listen to it once, or you bookmark it to come back to it -- and that's the end of the story. However, it is not uncommon to find an audio or video file on the web that you'd like to have on your hard drive. Some common examples are musicians that want to learn a song or an athlete that wants to study a video of a move, or play, or technique from their particular sport.

There are many A/V Downloaders on the internet, but in almost all cases, these products work with exceptions. In other words, there are some sites on which they do not work -- and from which they are unable to grab the audio or video. From a technical standpoint, this is not surprising. There are many different ways to handle and process audio and video from a web page -- and some of these technologies render the technologies used in downloader products ineffective. However, with Download Surgeon, that all changes. Download Surgeon can grab any video or any audio from any site on the internet.

No more wasted time trying to find a way to grab or download something, only to look at your watch and find out you've just blown two hours with nothing to show for it.
Video to MP3 (or audio)
You can strip audio from any video file and save it as an MP3, or WAV, or most other common audio file formats.
Compatibility
Regardless of whether you grab the audio or video you can save it in most of the common file formats. That means it will be compatible with your phone, tablet, iPad, iTunes, Google Play, etc.

Take Advantage of Download Surgeon's
All-in-One Direct Download Modules
or Screen Recorder

YouTube Downloader
given the importance of YouTube as a library of audio and video files, we have one module focused solely on YouTube. It can download any video found on YouTube. One of the common problems with competitor products is that if YT makes a website change, it can break the ability to download files. While we must deal with the same possibility, we have built into Download Surgeon as an automatic updater to minimize any down time.
OS Downloader
This module has the potential to work on several hundred popular sites. Initially it has been programmed to work on 10. These are: Facebook, Reverbnation, Sound Cloud, CMT.com, Tumblr, Ustream, MetaCafe, Daily Motion, Break, and Livestream.
Sniffer Downloader
Unlike the other two modules which require direct URLs, the Sniffer Downloader works differently. It detects the network connection between your computer and the internet, when playing an audio or video file on a website, and it is able to grab this data stream and save it to your computer. Although the sniffer module doesn't work on all sites (we estimate 85% - 90% of sites that have audio and video) it can download from thousands of sites.
SC Recorder
This module is your fallback option. If none of the other three modules mentioned above are able to download files from a particular site, you can always count on the ability of this module to grab what you want. The three modules mentioned above are direct download modules that will download the audio or video faster and with quality that equals the original. For those reasons, you may want to try using them first. However, if they don't work on a particular site, then you can use the SC Recorder and know that it will get the job done for you.

Download Surgeon is a great product, but it can be a full time job to keep it working.

6
What is the quality of the files I grab in Download Surgeon?

The files that are grabbed using one of the three, direct download modules will be exactly the same as the original file. Those files obtained using Download Surgeon's SC Recorder will be similar but slightly reduced in quality because you will b taking a video of a video. Audio files from the SC recorder should be virtually identical because of our system records system audio.

7
Is it legal to download audio or videos?

Download Surgeon is not different than many products, it can be used for legal purposes and it can also be used for illegal purposes. Google among others have sued to block some products that perform these functions. However, it's important to remember that many uses of copyrighted material are considered legal under the fair use doctrine to U.S. copyright law. The fair use doctrine makes exceptions for non-infringing purposes like news reporting, research, education -- or just for laughs. Consider YouTube's first big legal copyright challenge, a 2007 video of a baby dancing to the Prince song "Let's Go Crazy". Universal Music Group, the copyright holder of that hit song, sued the baby's mom for copyright violation. A judge ruled in favor of the mom and the baby, citing fair use.
 

Also, most websites contain something called a Terms of Service (TOS) agreement which describes the terms for using a website. Downloading files may not be allowed under the TOS of some websites and the violation of the TOS, and it is possible that this could result in blocking or suspension of an account on that website.
 

Our goal is to provide you with a useful tool. We are in no position to provide you with advice on whether how you use the product is legal or not. We have had various types of downloading modules in some products for almost a decade. Generally speaking our experience is this: If you download a file for your own personal use it is extremely unlikely you will ever encounter any issues. Contrarily, if you download something and then redistribute it or use it in a commercial settings you are asking for trouble and it may very well find you.
