xVideoServiceThief – Ultimate Download Manager for Online Videos

xVideoServiceThief - Downloader for Online VideosxVideoServiceThief is an open source online video downloader designed specifically for just downloading videos from Youtube and alike video sharing websites.

I know there are dozens if not more Youtube downloaders out there but this one is really different. Let’s quickly go over some of its features.

1. Cross Platform

The program is available for Windows (both XP and Vista), Mac and Linux PCs. So it can be installed pretty much everywhere.

2. Download more than one video at a time

As you would expect from any other download manager it can download several files simultaneously. In the screenshot below you can see that I was downloading 4 videos at the same time.

3. Built-in video converter

xVideoServiceThief comes with integrated video converter which can convert downloaded videos to AVI (Windows), WMV, MPEG 1/2, MP4 (Apple iPod), 3GP (mobile phone) and MP3 formats. For more advanced users there are optional settings to control the output video resolution, audio sampling and video frame rates.

The really cool thing about it is that it can be fully automated. You simpy enter the URL of the video you want to download and xVideoServiceThief will then download, automatically convert it to the selected video format and store it in the specified folder. Sweet.

xVideoServiceThief can handle videos from 50+ video sharing sites. I have successfully tested it with videos from Youtube, Dailymotion, Google Video and some other popular video sharing sites. Other than a couple of errors with Metacafe videos there were no problems whatsoever.

    Oh dear, now it seems that Easy Video Downloader, AND xVideoServiceThief, are ALSO only for Windows (though I see xVideoServiceThief promises a MacOS Version soon).

    • Aibek

      Yes, xVST is working on their Mac version now. Though there is alternative that you can try. It’s an Adobe air app called Bookmash (bookmash.com/), definitely check it out. I have tested it a bout two weeks ago and planning to do a story onit sometimes in the future.
