Video sites such as YouTube are great for watching entertaining clips, music videos and a whole bunch more. But what about videos you would like to save for posterity? There is no guarantee that a video you watch today will still be available tomorrow, and you may want to have the option of watching a clip when you do not have access to the internet. These are all situations in which Wondershare vDownloader can help, making it possible to download video from YouTube, Veco, Hulu and more.

There are various other video downloading tools available, and this is one that can be used in two different ways. Firstly, there are browser plugins available for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, and this gives you a dedicated download button whenever you view a page that features a video. The second option is to simply browse your favorite video sites as normal and copy the URL of a video you are interested in.

As well as archiving purposes, there are lots of other uses for this tool. We’ve already mentioned that it can be used to allow videos to be watched when there is no internet connection available, but it is also useful to help overcome problems with a slow connection. Rather than enduring frustrating buffering and stop-start playback, just download the whole thing in advance and enjoy stutter-free viewing.

The videos you download might be in one of several formats including MP4 and FLV. Thankfully you will find that there is built in support for playback of these video types within the program so you do not need to worry about installing another player.
