URL Snooper
Uncover the hidden web addresses of audio and video streams

While there are a huge number of music and video web sites that provide content for download, there are also plenty of sites that stream content. Grabbing streaming content is possible, but in order to do so you need to discover the URL of the streaming files - and that can be very difficult. But that's where URL Snooper comes in.

Just launch the program (it's portable, no installation required) and it will immediately begin scanning your network for streaming URLs, displaying them in a simple table. Right-clicking an address displays an option to copy the address to the clipboard, ready for use in whatever download or playback tool you might have installed.

In our tests, the program didn't work on YouTube, at least not reliably. But then there are already a host of YouTube download services and tools available, so perhaps that's not such a big issue. And if we went elsewhere - Apple's Trailer site, say - the results were much better.

If you do have problems, though, URL Snooper does have extra tools which can help. Click File > Advanced Mode and you're able to filter captured URLs by protocol or key word, as well as defining your preferred network card, sniffing engine and more.

Version 2.37.01:
    •[Feature] Added new option to capture a few packets subsequent to any triggered capture, to help see what information came after the triggered capture.
    •[Feature] Larger block of data is saved around found urls.
    •[MinorFeature] Ctrl+A to select all urls in view.
    •[MinorFeature] Added quick forum link to help menu.
    •[MinorChange] Removed "minimize-to-tray" captionbar button.
    •[BugFix] Mixed rare mystery exception crash on sniffing.
    •[BugFix] Removed rare error report of "too small packetmem"
    •[BugFix] File search dialog was malformed; program hung if you didn't specify files to search for.

Verdict:

It doesn't work with all sites, but URL Snooper is still a useful way to detect the addresses of streaming files, very useful if you'd then like to download them

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
