Ashampoo ClipFinder HD is the ultimate clip browser with a breathtaking video wall and MP3 conversion from videos! Find, view, save and convert web videos in HD or SD! Search in up to fifteen video portals at once or in selected portals, view videos directly and convert and save them to your hard disk with a single click. Nothing makes finding, viewing, saving and managing web videos easier. And Ashampoo ClipFinder HD isn’t just better, it’s also still completely free. Ashampoo ClipFinder HD is a like a 3D web browser. You just enter search words in the Search bar and the search results from up to 15 video portals are displayed as clip thumbnails in the 3D Video Wall. You can search selectively in just some portals, just one portal or all portals. You can also create multiple searches in different tabs and switch between the results.
Navigating in the 3D Video Wall is amazing: Zoom in on clip previews with the mouse wheel, drag to scroll up and down and from side to side, point to a clip to see information, change the order and layout by dragging. In the 3D Video Wall interface it’s like walking around in your own boutique full of videos. Users who prefer the classic scrolling interface can activate it if they want, of course. Organizing your saved clips is just as easy. Just define categories, put your clips in them and navigate them in the 3D Video Wall and organize them by dragging with the mouse.
Ashampoo ClipFinder HD Great new functions:
• Revolutionary 3D Video Wall. Makes navigating through your search results and clip collections amazingly easy. Browse, scroll, zoom, choose and play your clips in a 3D world with natural mouse movements and the scroll wheel. Organize your Video Wall by dragging, display clip details with the mouse.
• One-click download and convert. ClipFinder HD downloads the clips in flash (*.flv) format and if needed converts them directly to MP3 format in one easy process.
• HD clips and HD filtering. Search for all video clips or just HD clips. Viewing, saving and converting HD clips is just as easy as regular clips.
• Much more meta data. All the information you need about every clip: HD or SD, duration, rating, date, description, tags and more.
• Vimeo portal support. In addition to the 14 existing portals Ashampoo ClipFinder HD now also supports the popular Vimeo portal with lots of HD clips. You can now search for and display clips from YouTube, Vimeo, Spike, Veoh, Google Video, LiveVideo, Dailymotion, blip.tv, Yahoo! Video, Metacafe, MySpace, SevenLoad, MyVideo, videu and ClipFish.
• Better playlists. Create video clip playlists in the same way you make music playlists.
