URL Snooper is a program written to help users locate the urls of audio and video files so that they can be recorded.

Many links to streaming audio and video that you come across on the web are hidden behind javascript or activex scripts. Because of this, it is sometimes very difficult to figure out the actual urls that correspond to the streams being played. URL Snooper provides easy solution to finding the URLs for all streams by by watching network traffic and identifying potential urls, especially streaming media urls.

* Program Web Page and Download:

2.41.01 - Mar 24, 2017

* [MajorFeature] First High-dpi compatible version beta.
* [Bugfix] Minor UI bugfixes.
* [Improvement] Better mouseover hints for General Options.
* [MinorFeature] New option to not clean/truncate displayed urls.

2.39.01 - Nov 6, 2015

2.38.01 - Apr 28, 2015

* [Feature] New option to start sniffing immediately when program is started, even in advanced mode.
* [BugFix/Feature] New option to better handle the "Also Find" text.  In previous versions a url would be excluded if it did not match url filter type (multimedia vs all), even if it contained an Also Find keyword.  You now have an option (enabled by default) to always include results that match the Also Find keyword, even if it does not match the url filter type.  This is most useful when restricting search for multimedia urls but also anything containing the keyword.  Tip: Use ; character to separate multiple keywords.
v2.37.01 - Dec 31, 2014

* [Feature] Added new option to capture a few packets subsequent to any triggered capture, to help see what information came after the triggered capture.

2.34.01 - May 19, 2014

* Updated with latest version of WinPCap (4.1beta5).

New version posted with latest WinPCap and updates for VISTA and IE7 compatibility.

Please clarify a couple of things:

(1) Is this a beta (as it says on the homepage, but not here), or a stable release?

(2) Is there any benefit for non-Vista users in installing this over 2.14.02?

Many thanks.

If urlsnooper is working fine for you already with version 2.14.02 then there is no real reason to update.

Technically this is a beta; depending on how confident I am about a beta release i will sometimes put on the web page a link to the Latest (beta) and Previous (stable) versions, OR i might but a link to Latest Stable and More Recent Beta. Sorry for any confusion - in almost all cases i would recommend people use the latest beta versions.  For non-mission-critical software there isn't much reason not to use the betas.

Version 2.18.01 - Feb. 4th, 2007

* Updated installer to use WinPcap 4.0 final on WinXp/Nt/Vista
* Added code so installer uses WinPcap 4beta2 on Win9x/Me (last version to support these versions)-mouser (December 10, 2005, 04:36 PM)
--- End quote ---

Version 2.18.01 still doesn't work under Windows 98SE! It runs fine the FIRST time you run it after installing, but it will NOT work a second time. All I get is a standard Windows error message saying it's performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.
