TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) videos are getting fairly popular day by day with ‘ideas worth spreading’ culminating throughout the world. Innovative concepts, ideas and achievements inspire millions of users while many free videos lead to further positive change. You may encounter a situation where you would find it useful to download specific TED videos for bookmarking to quickly access them. TEDinator is a desktop utility that syncs itself with the TED database to present a complete list of videos along with subtitles for download, and offers you intelligent indexed searches. Moreover, you can easily batch download and skip videos, during the downloading progress. With refresh and export (via HTML, XML or text file) features, this software is bound to save your time in accessing inspiration.
Once installed, TEDinator loads with minimum effect on the system performance. It welcomes you with the settings window after a ‘greetings’ message. Here, you need to specify the destination path, video quality and subtitle language for the application to follow.
Initially, the application takes a few seconds to list all TED videos from the official website. These are displayed in an organized manner with emphasis on the title, event name, date and duration for easier navigation and identification. Moreover, you can download all videos with or without subtitles. TEDinator lets you export links in HTML and XML formats for highlighting useful TED favorites.
After selecting videos of your interest, click Start Download to load multiple TED videos. The application automatically skips duplicate files and shows progress at the bottom of the main window. At any point, you can manually skip or cancel the downloading process as per the requirement. In addition, the links can be refreshed and searched through the top panel of the application window.
When the download process finishes, it will automatically upload the destination folder. It should be noted that TEDinator synchronizes with the official TED website and saves videos in the MP4 format.
