Video Downloader Apps and Alternatives

20 applications in this hubLast updated: Jan 21st 2019, 06:51 GMT

The Internet is an almost endless source of entertaining and educational videos, and users can quickly find them with a simple web search.

If you want to enjoy these videos offline, however, you have to use a specialized application. Thankfully, there are numerous software solutions that enable users to simply paste the URL of their video, then simply choose the destination folder.

Some of these apps also allow users to specify the format they prefer. This comes in handy if they are planning to copy the clips to their portable devices and only certain formats are recognized, as well as to ensure the videos can be processed with various applications.

While most of the applications are compatible with numerous online sources, some of the utilities can only process URLs taken from a specific website. Despite what their name might imply, however, most YouTube downloaders actually support multiple other video services as well.
