Have you ever come across a weird video format that just won’t play on your Mac? Something like .rmv or .rmvb — remember those? In order play just about every type of video without having to think about conversion or compatibility, you’ll need Elmedia Player PRO. And say, you’d like to download a copy of the video from some dodgy video streaming site to watch offline — you can do that too.

Now, we will be giving away 25 copies of Elmedia Player PRO worth almost $500. Here’s how you can win one.

Elmedia Player has a built-in browser function that automatically lists every video from a particular site, and lets you either play or download the videos directly in-app. The convenience of being able to watch those videos without an Internet connection is certainly enticing.

The Elmedia Player browser can sort through the site and show you all the media files or simply the flash or video files. Once you know which ones you wish to grab, Elmedia will download them to your computer.

Elmedia Player also provides a library manager, which sorts the download media files chronologically or by type. It allows you to organise your videos through a simple and easy to use drag-and-drop interface.

All obscure file formats are supported by Elmedia Player, including FLV, SWF, AVI, MOV, MP4, WMV, RM (Real Player) and XAP (Silverlight).

    It plays a lot of video formats like VLC. But Elmedia Player PRO allows downloading online videos from such sites as YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe and so on. When downloading SWF files, you can preview all external resources used by the SWF animation. You can download them along with the SWF file if you wish or even download just the external resources without the initial SWF.
    With PRO version you can also make screenshots of the current movie moments or even series of screenshots, watch the movie in a full-screen mode, keep it on top of all other applications using "Always on top" option.
