How to download videos online from Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc.

Watching videos online is a habit growing substantially these days. The world has seen an astonishing increase in the number of PC/Phone users watching videos online. However, sometimes you feel the need of downloading these videos for offline viewing. Now, downloading any video usually calls for a need of software but you also have numerous online video downloading tools available at your command. In this post, we will talk about a few websites that allow you to download videos online from various sites like YouTube, Dailymotion, Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, Netflix, Vimeo, etc., without the need of installing any software.

Most of the video websites especially the big giants like YouTube, Dailymotion, etc., allow you to save a video for offline viewing but it gets stored in the various cloud storage services – but none of these sites offer an option to save videos offline on your PC. Mentioned below are some of the best video downloading websites that help you grab any video by feeding its URL to the website. Take a look!

1. VideoGrabber

VideoGrabber is one of the most used online video downloading tools. Revamped over the time, this website takes the video URL as an input and provides you with an option of downloading the video in different file formats and resolution.

With Video Grabber, you can now also convert videos and start recording your computer screen with just one click.

2. SaveFrom.Net

SaveFrom.Net is one of the faster ways to download online videos. Within seconds of putting in the video URL, you get the various video formats and resolution options to download. What I personally like about this website is that it also allows you to download subtitles for the video that you are downloading in different languages. It supports most of the video resource websites so you can feed any video URL into the website and sit back while it gets downloaded.

Another great feature about this website is that you don’t even need to open the website to download the video. Just add “” or “” before the video URL and press Enter. It also provides the browser add-ons to port the functionality native to browsers.

3. VideoGrabby

Minimalistic in design, VideoGrabby offers a plain sailing approach to download the video in best-suited file format and resolution based upon your network. You can also download MP3 file by feeding in the video URL. It goes recommended from our side if you want a neat and effortless way to download videos online.

Same as other sites, just copy the video URL and paste it into the search box. VideoGrabby automatically captures the video description if the corresponding website is supported (yes, it does support many!). You can also switch to the HQ (High Quality) mode for better resolution.

4. KeepVid

This is another hot favorite on our list. With the wide range of download option, KeepVid allows you to batch download full YouTube playlist videos where you just need to provide the playlist URL. You can also convert the video files into several audio formats online itself. Providing support for a spectrum of video sites, KeepVid also supports downloading 1080p and 4K videos.
