About Us


Jaksta products are developed and maintained by Jaksta.com.

Jaksta was written originally for Windows PCs in 2008, and then rewritten as a pure Mac application in 2011. As new streaming protocols and formats are introduced, the developers behind Jaksta are dedicated to keeping these programs at the forefront of technology.

Jaksta products are fully DMCA compliant, and do not decrypt or otherwise circumvent strong copy protection mechanisms in violation of international laws.

However, 99% of all streaming video and music is unprotected, so with our products you'll be able to capture and save almost everything you find on the Internet.

Our products are also distributed by:

Jaksta Media Recorder is our most popular product and allows you to download videos and music from YouTube for free. Upgrade to download and record videos, music and radio from 100,000+ other sites.
