Web Video Downloader

Web Video Downloader

If you are reading this article, then I am sure you have also toyed with the idea of downloading video from the Internet, from sites like Youtube, Google, Metacafe, iFilm, Dailymotion, and many others.

Video on the Internet has taken off big time, and many people including myself, prefer to get information from the Internet in video format. Be it tutorials, how-to articles, news, etc.

What is annoying though is that you can find a great video on the Internet now, and later on when you want to view it again the video is no longer there. You can’t really blame these video sharing sites, for taking down the videos after a while. Sometimes this might be due to legal issues, copyright infringement matters, violation of their terms of service or lots of other problems. But the bottom line is that if you find a great video (especially user generated content videos) on the Internet today, there is no guarantee that it will still be there when you visit the site next time.

So wouldn't it be nice if you can download these videos and save them on your computer's hard drive for viewing at a later date?

How to download video from the Internet

But how do you download video from the Internet?

To answer this question I decided to look around for software that will help me download video from the Internet.

These programs (software) which help you download video from the Internet are called web video downloaders.

They are either standalone programs, add-ons that integrate into your web browser or web based services. Some of these programs are free to use, while others will cost you as little as $30.0 or cheaper in some cases. If you are really keen on video, then that is a small amount of money to pay for these programs.

In fact my search even led me to discover a web browser that integrates the feature of video download into its capabilities called Maxthon Browser.

Apart from the Maxthon browser, here is what I stumbled upon:
