Freemake Video Downloader

Freemake Video Downloader 3.8

Download videos from various websites
Downloads files from video-sharing websites like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc. and saves them locally into MP4, 3GP, FLV, AVI, MKV or WMV videos and into MP3 songs.

Freemake Video Downloader can identify the underlying URL of Internet video to help you download the corresponding files. The program minimizes to the system tray and using it is as simple as adding the desired URLs or letting the program identify downloadable contents while you are surfing video sites. The program works in two modes: “One-click” mode uses the program´s default output values while the other mode allows setting custom parameters, such as desired quality and target folder, and it even supports converting to a video format different from the source.

The downloader supports more than 10000 sites. However, some sites with copyright-protected contents are not allowed. It gives special attention to dealing with adult sites. In this respect, you can ask the program not to show video thumbnails, save the downloaded video as hidden, or block those sites altogether. Moreover, this option is password-protected.

The application allows connecting through a proxy and setting limitations as to speed and number of simultaneous download jobs. Besides, it supports using your personal accounts to connect to social network sites.

All in all, the main advantage of Freemake Video Downloader is related to its usability. It’s a program I truly recommend for downloading Internet video. It is also good to know that it supports several languages.
