Project URL Snooper (free URL Snooper software download)

Many links to streaming audio and video that you come across on the web are hidden behind JavaScript, Macromedia Flash, ActiveX. Because of this, it is sometimes very difficult to figure out the actual URLs that correspond to the streams being played.

Project URL Snooper was written to help users locate the URLs of audio and video files so that they can be recorded.

The goal of Project URL Snooper is to provide a one-stop easy solution to finding the URLs for all streams. It does this by watching network traffic and identifying potential URLs, especially streaming media URLs.
