Plugin Description

WiseLoop Web Media Grabber WordPress Plugin is designed to download media resources from the web and use the extracted media inside your WordPress blog.
This WordPress plugin allows media extraction and embedding by using a complete and intuitive administration panel featuring powerful media extraction engines combined with a friendly media browser.
The extraction engine is capable of downloading images, movies, audio and flash files from the internet as long as the target URL contains or refers media files using web links (a href tags) or various tag attributes (src, embed, param, movie etc.). Also, the media grabbing engine is able to identify more than the obvious media resources having the most common file extensions - it will find the media generated dynamically by the servers or media files that have no valid extensions or no extensions at all (such as images generated at runtime by the web servers); the identification is made by checking the server response header when pinging the tested media resource.
The smart caching feature stores the useful information about founded media (HTTP headers, width, height for images etc.) and so, it improves the grabbing speed, saves bandwidth and prevents useless pinging of the grabbed media.
