How to copy and open multimedia / youtube swf video files from Opera cache?

opera cache folder

Opera browser is notorious in making everything cryptic inside its cache. When it stores internet history in its cache, it renames everything to its liking and you are left behind to guess which file belongs to what.

Still, you can use multimedia files renamed by Opera in such cryptic manner. For example, Multimedia / Youtube video files were normally big in size, and you can easily judge them by their size in cache directory. Oprea cache directory normally located at \Program Files\Opera\profile\cache4\. Under this directory you may find hundreds of files with cryptic names generally started with ‘opr’ prefix. Sort them by size and hunt for the file with a particular time stamp – i.e. the time when you were surfing or streaming a particular audia/video. Copy that file to another folder and rename it with extension swf (if Youtub video) or jpg or mp3 as the case may be. Open the file in appropriate program. If you use Mplayer, then you may directly open files of any media you have copied.

Manage your Zune through iTunes in a lot better way!

itunes

If you want to add your previously collected MP3 files that necessarily may not have MP3 tags such as Album/Artist name, then Zune is notorious enough to not let you set album/artist name, and when you copy these files to your Zune, it keeps all of them in Unknown Artists category. In case you have hundreds of MP3 files then managing them will be next to impossible.

Zune

You can use MP3 tag editors to define album/artist name to avoid this. A better way is to use iTunes. In iTunes, select as many MP3 files you want to give album name, and right click on the selection. Click on Get Info.

itunes

A window named Multiple Item Information will appear where you can fill down Album name/Artist name / Genre and click OK to save. Then copy these MP3 files to your Zune in usual way. Now you will have album names/genre/artist in your Zune – easy to manage songs now!
