Want to download free music and video from web sites? Free Music Zilla is an automatic media downloader that monitors your web browser and grabs any music or video it finds.
When it first appeared, Free Music Zilla was designed to rip music from sites like Last.fm, MySpace and Imeem. However, it hasn't kept up with the development of those sites and fails to pick up music you listen to on their sites.
Free Music Zilla isn't a total failure, however, as there are many sites it easily downloads content from. It's excellent at grabbing embedded video from lots of pages, including YouTube. Also, the many music blogs that feature sample MP3s work very well with Free Music Zilla.
The interface is extremely simple. If you can see a file, Free Music Zilla has found something. Because many video sites don't call files by artist name an so on, sometimes it's hard to see if the file is the one you want, but downloading is painless, so you can always check and rename later.
In its preferences you can choose which browsers Free Music Zilla should monitor, where to put downloaded files, and whether it starts on startup, minimizes to system tray, etc.
Free Music Zilla is a very basic downloader, but it's effective when it works! It's a shame it no longer functions with Last.fm or MySpace, but there are still many other sites where it's useful.
