Download, Viewing and Converter Tools For Youtube, etc.

5 01 2007

Video Download and Managing Toolsa) different tools that let you download desired videos from popular video sharing websites(incl. youtube, googlevideo, metacafe, myspace, dailymotion…), b) flash media players to view and manage these files on your desktop and c) tools to convert these files from one format to another so that you can transfer them to your Ipod, PSP, Mobile phone and whatever portable device you want. Ooh, and most of these tools are free, all non-free ones are clearly specified.

WEBSITES that let you download content from popular video sharing sites: here you simply enter video URL, select source website and press search. Once file detected you’re given direct file download link. Websites listed in no particular order. ‘extra’ refers to additional features available on the website
