I am searching for a way to capture and save, hopefully at a high quality level, streaming videos. The easiest way for me to describe what we want to do, is to be able to save YouTube videos. (Which would also be a great thing to be able to do). I know that there are programs out there that do this. How and where are they, what is the best one for accomplishing this, without losing video quality?
The primary goal of doing this is to actually capture from a security cam feed which has kind of been pieced together. Its using a still camera that can also do HD movie clips. Unfortunately, sending the information to the computer, there is no way to save it, and the camera deletes the recorded video every 60 minutes. The on-screen software looks almost identical, and behaves very similar to how YouTube or I guess NetFlix streams the video. So how do I capture it in HD as it is coming in?
