You can either copy your video link from your browser address bar and press the + button or Paste and Add to list, or you can drag and drop the link into the software main window.
The software will check if a valid download link can be obtained automatically from the provided link. If the autodetect mode finds a stream that can be downloaded, it will add your video to the download list, like this:
If there is no valid stream automatically detected, you will get the following message, where you need to choose if you want to Launch Link Finder Chrome Mode or Launch Link Finder Expert:
The recommended option is to use Link Finder Chrome Mode.
The Link Finder engine is powered by its own browser for a light access to the video platforms or websites. Having embedded a multi-tab enabled web browser with light fingerprint, it is suitable for identifying the media URLs for the video content that you are looking for. Its intuitive interface gives you the option to enter the URL of the website or video platform you want to browse, supporting 30.000+ websites.
While browsing and playing the desired video content in the embedded browser, Link Finder engine detects and displays all URLs to video content, indicating the video type and the URL where the video content is located for each video found. You then have the option to add the URLs to the download list and start the download.
Beside M3U8 HLS manifests, Video Link Finder also detects other popular streaming protocols like RTMP, HDS (HTTP Dynamic Streaming – F4M), MPEG-DASH (MPD), HLS (HTTP Live Streaming – M3U8) and VOD files (Video-On-Demand files like MP4, MP3, FLV, AAC etc).
Link Finder Expert is a powerful feature to be used when no video is detected with the copy/paste mode or with the Link Finder engine.
It’s very easy to use, just navigate to your video and play it. Once a a valid stream or subtitle is detected, the Link Finder Expert download list will pop-up and you can add the streams you want to the download list.
