vdlHeadThere are plenty of times when you watch a video on YouTube and you want to save the video as a certain file type, so you can watch it on the go or just save it to watch on your computer or home DVD player. The market is saturated with pay video downloader software apps that do this easily. There are a few that do it for free but VDownloader does it for free and does it well!

There is a paid pro version of VDownloader that costs $16 today. But we have 20 pro licenses to give away to our readers. The paid version of this video downloader software lets you perform batch downloads and conversions. It also lets you use the application to convert video files already on your machine and much more. View the details below and continue reading to see how you can win one of these licenses.

pro-vs-free


Now let’s take a look at the free downloadable application. It converts videos from YouTube, Daily Motion, Break, Veoh, Blip.tv and MySpace.com and can convert it into any format including just audio via MP3.

vdl1

I downloaded the free 5.2MB version from VDownloader and installed it. It was quick and painless and it didn’t try to install any crap on my machine. I appreciate that.

The main user interface looks like this.

vdl2

You can type the URL of your video into the box provided at the top of the screen or you can browse to the video like so”¦

vdl3

Once you get to the video, just copy the URL from the URL bar at the top of your browser like so (make sure to highlight the entire URL).

vdl5

Then VDownloader will see that you copied a video URL by itself. Then it grabs the URL from the clipboard and pastes it for you automatically like this:

vdl4

Your next step is to decide which format you want the video saved as. You can select the output format (or leave it as is with the original file choice) as you can see from the above screenshot. Just hit the drop-down menu and select the format you want. I would run with AVI but if you want a file that will play on your PSP, iPod, iPhone or Windows Mobile devices (MPG), you will find options for all of them.

After making your selection and pasting your URL to the video file you are ready to start downloading and converting. Simply hit the download button next to the URL. There is a Download HD Videos checkbox below the URL box – keep this checked if you want the best possible quality download.

vdl6

Once it retrieves the video information it will prompt you to input the path of where you want to save the newly converted video file.

vdl7

Hit save and watch the magic begin.

vdl8

After downloading the video, the conversion will begin (if you selected conversion. If you did not, you will be done).

vdl9

Pretty nifty huh? Real easy to use and handy to keep in your toolkit.

Now for the contest. Simply leave a comment on this post as to why you want the video downloader software. Each comment counts as one vote. You can also tweet your reason for wanting the license – just include #MakeUseOfContest in the tweet and add @KarlGechlik to it so I can tally them up! The contest will run for 1 week (ends on 14’th of March).

Any questions or comments, let us know in the comments!

    This product sounds great! I do a lot of video downloading and converting, so I'm constantly switching programs....what a pain! This would make things much simpler, plus since I'm living on fixed income, a break on the cost would be awesome!

    There was an issue with the original codes that were sent out by the makers of VDownloaders. They have reissued the codes and I have sent them out. If you have not received yours and you were on the original list of winners please reply here. With the same name and email address you used originally.

    I have always relayed in firefox addon for such downloding, but this seems a good software ,the ability to convert the vedio once downloded into a desired format is too good a feature for me to miss this giveaway, so please count me in the draw.

    Have very slow computer connection. The PRO v. would enable us to go to various sites, download at various times, & in various forms - as well as being able to view offline later. This would be great for education and entertainment.

  26. fazel
    March 8, 2010 at 8:11 am

    I would be glad to get a license for this because internet speed is very slow in my country and I am having difficulty in viewing youtube videos.
    Plus, there are many software out there which offer download and conversion of youtube videos but none of them offer conversion to many types of output format (mp3, avi, mp4, iphone etc) as VDownload does all in one software.

    I'm a VDownloader free user and I must say that its is a really really good software. I'm always download video for later viewing because streaming video for me is a pain. Using a low connection (384kbps), watching video is hard for me. Specially if I see something interesting. What I like with the "Plus" version is the ability to convert the video after downloading. Its very convenient and automatic. With its nice interface that make VDownloader make appealing and easy to use.

    Thank you very much for this giveaway. Count me in.

    I always been looking around for a good video downloader tool like this. I have tried sothink's web video downloader but it is a useless 30 days trial or similar tools via web interfaces. Nothing beats something that is able to download cool music videos or clips.

    A tool with the capability to download, even convert video and also allow you to watch offline, how much more can you ask? To me it looks like the ultimate Swiss army knife, and a definite must have in every web surfer's arsenal.

    Something I'd definitely like to make use of!

    Cheers! ;)

    This is amazing! A lot of my teachers have taken to putting up videos on youtube, demonstrating how to do things-like labs, for instance, or showing videos they want us to watch. IT would be amazing to be able to download these and have them saved to my computer. Especially because then even when the internet was down, I could still watch the files.

    It's a false positive. You can see people complaining about this even on CNET. The application are thorughly tested before being featured on CNET.

    It's simple n easy to use and without craps.
    I would love the pro version to convert the rest of my videos on my PC.

    I want this software because my 3 kids love watching kids videos on you tube...and I often need these to keep them entertained in our van allowing me to focus on driving...Without this software, I would be forced to entertain them with food and drinks...and you woudn't want us drinking and driving!

    I'd like this. I think it would come in handy, especially considering how flash really does not like my machine and insists on using 100% of my CPU whenever I try to watch a video.

    As a regular online videosite visitor, i watch a lot of videos but unfortunately, most sites or apps i find online that allows me to download these videos only allows me to download one video at a time. But upon reading about this software's pro version ability to batch download, i got really interested. It even helps it's very easy to use.

    So Mr Gechlik, i would love to get one of those free VDownloader Pro accounts if you choose to since it would be a great help for a regular user like me. Thank you.

    I have limited bandwidth (200mb) per 24 hours. If I go over that I am shut down for 24 hours. This would be handy in saving video during my window of unlimited bandwidth which is between 2am and 6am. I could schedule downloads then :)
    This would be great to have!

    I tried many downloading options. Apart from bloated Real Player, nothing worked flawlessly. I would love something light and easy like this. Sign me up for a free license.

    The download from Brothersoft contains TrojanClicker, or at least Microsoft Security Essentials thinks so-

        Aibek, thanks for the explanation. I did notice an ebay icon on my desktop which wasn't there before - I don't know if that was in the terms of agreement or not - and perhaps the ebay link is what triggered the false notice. I'm sorry for throwing up a red flag - just wanted to make people aware.
        Mike-

    I want it because it's free. Really though, the Pro version has the scheduler, which would make my life so much easier when I need to convert formats!
