There are various tools that can be used to download videos from a variety of web sites such as YouTube, but it is often the case that such video downloaders are not capable of coping with every streaming site or have limitations on the video formats that are supported – these are not restrictions that are found here.
Freemake Video Downloader 3.0.0 can be used to download videos from almost any site – including YouTube, Facebook, Metacafe, Vimeo, Dailymotion and more – and you have the option of ripping video in its original format or converting to a different file type. All you need to do is copy and paste the relevant URL into the app and after selecting the options you would like to use, the rest of the hard work is done for you. With the number of supported video web site having swelled more than 10,000, the chances are that you will be able to download pretty much any video you stumble across.
There are browser plugins available for Firefox and Chrome but the program can be used in standalone mode as well if you like. Should your download be interrupted for any reason, there is no need to start again from scratch as the app supports download resumption. If you plan on downloading a large number of videos in quick succession, you can enable one-click download mode which will avoid the need to have to keep choosing download settings – all of you chosen videos will be automatically downloaded to the same folder using the same configuration parameters.
It is worth bearing in mind that the installer initially attempts to install an ad-supported version of the software which includes a browser toolbar and changes your home page. To avoid this irritation, be sure to select the Advanced installation option when prompted and deselect the boxes relating to Facemoods.
