Clip Hunter (a.k.a. Movie Hunter) is a tool to automatically search and massively download videos and pictures from the Internet.
It is a great utility app to easily create a massive collection of pics and short clips on your SD card and watch them offline.
Clip Hunter is a crawler mass downloader app and NOT a browser plugin to grab streaming flash movies. Such plugins typically require you to browse websites manually and let the grabber detect the video stream when you start watching the movie online. Clip Hunter will instead surf video galleries on its own, gather links to files on the site and load any file with video (avi, mpg, mpeg, mp4, mov, wmv) or picture (png, jpg, jpeg, gif) extension to the sdcard. Just enter keywords and press search - it's that simple.
With Clip Hunter, it's cool and easy to find and collect many hot pics and vids fast and gratis from the web. "Save costs" option will let you allow only WiFi downloads and not 3G. "Save battery" option will pause downloads automatically while your Android device is not connected to a charger. You can also set other smart limits.
The app will not work with sites like youtube, especially adult flash video networks (pornhub, tube8, xnxx etc.). Since we know that some users may use the app to download sex-related ("xxx", "porn", "hentai") content, we marked the app as "high maturity" (18 or 21 ). We take no legal responsibility if you search for such content while not being allowed to do so. We also take no responsibility if you misuse the app to steal or pirate any copyrighted materials like long HD movies though we are not aware how that could be technially possible. This app is a simple web crawler and not a torrent client, so it won't get big full movies. It can only download files which are freely accessible to visitors of websites, without logins or typing in numbers from captchas.
Q: Whatever I type in as search request, the app finds nothing
A: The algorithm used in Simple search just couldn't find anything matching your request. Press the button next to the search field with an image of a scope to start Advanced search. There you can type in the exact address of a website where you know there are videos/pictures.
Q: Can I download videos from youtube, facebook, vkontakte?
Q: Can I download from youporn, xhamster, xvideos, pornhub, porntube...?
A: No. Those websites use steaming flash video. There are apps (browser plugins) which do that but this app works in a completely different way - it's a crawler downloader which browses pages, walks across links and downloads any videos/pictures it finds if they match your keywords. On the plus side, it's completely automatic so no need to even keep it open - it will work as a background service
Q: The app downloads nothing after a few minutes of search
A: Just let it search a bit. If it really gets bugged, uninstall it and re-install from Google Play. With 2K Android devices around I can't guarantee perfect stability on all. Also, websites build up defenses against apps like this. This app defeats most of these defenses but not all
Q: I can't watch most of the downloaded videos
A: Install MX Player and/or Mobo Player. Android only supports MP4 format but most videos on the Internet are AVI, WMV or MPG
Q: Some files are corrupt/have size of 0 bytes
A: Websites sometimes send garbage. Delete those.
Q: Most of the videos are 20-40 seconds long
A: The app is just a crawler and downloads the free stuff it finds. Some of this stuff will be short video clips. And btw, big long HD movies are not accessible legally for free. Even if the app could get those Google would ban it
Q: Can I download over 3G?
A: Yes. Just remember that it will generate lots of traffic. Check the app's Settings to turn on/off limits
Q: I still want to give it a 1-star review
A: Just press "Send feedback" button in Settings instead. I usually reply to emails right after I get them
