The procedure for using aTube Catcher will depend on what you want to do with the program. Let's take a look at each function
To use the video download (first tab of the program), first go to one of the websites supported by aTube Catcher (for example, YouTube) and look for the video you are interested in. Copy the link from the address section and paste it into the text field. Then, click on the Download button:
You will see that a window pops up with a list of formats and qualities. Choose the one you are interested in and click on Download:Choosing the download quality and format
Then, the video will be downloaded:Video downloading
Usually, the videos are saved in the location C:Users\Your_User_Name\Videos. Go to that route to see your downloads.
This is the second tab of aTube Catcher. This function lets you record a specific area of the screen, choose a window to record, or record the entire screen. You can also choose the sound source you want to record:Buttons to select the screen area to record
Once you are clear about all these aspects, click on the Start button to begin recording the screen:Button to start recording the screen
When you have finished, click on Stop. You will see a list of all the videos recording your screen just below the buttons:Screen recorded video saved on the PC
The videos on your screen will also be saved in the path C:Users\Your_User_Name\Videos, as will downloads from the Internet.
Using this functionality is easy. Go to a folder where you have videos which format you want to change, and drag them to the aTube Catcher window to place them in the conversion queue:Video to be converted in aTube Catcher
Then, select the video format you want to convert it to:Choosing the format type to which it will be converted
When you have it ready, click on Convert:Button to start the conversion
When your video has been converted, it will appear in route C:Users\Your_User_Name\Videos.
Creating optical discs
To create a CD or DVD with aTube Catcher, the process is also very simple. First, choose the recording device (if your computer does not have an optical drive, the program will generate an ISO image that you can take to another computer to record):Unit to create the optical disc
Just below, you have the options to change the title of the optical disc, as well as to choose what type of disc you want to create.
Then, there is the route where the ISO image will be saved. In this case, it is C:\Users\Your_User_Name\Local\Temp, so we are going to recommend you to change it for one more easily accessible. Click on the route that appears in the program:Output folder for ISO images
A window with a list of folders and units will be displayed. Go to the route that suits you best and click on OK:Choosing a new output folder
Now, we drag the file we want to save on the DVD to aTube Catcher and click on Burn DVD:File dragged to aTube Catcher’s list
If we want to record voice notes on our PC, aTube Catcher got us covered. The program will automatically detect any microphone you have connected to the computer and will display it in the Audio Device section:Device to record the audio
Actually, on this tab, we cannot do much more either. As in the previous ones, we can choose the output path of the files to be saved, but besides that, here, we will not find many customization options. Click the Start button to proceed with recording an audio file:Button to start recording audio
We click on Stop when we want to stop the recording:Button to stop recording audio
The files we generate will appear in the list at the bottom of the window:Audio note on the notes list
And that is it. As you can see, using any function of aTube Catcher is very intuitive and can be done in a few steps.
