But which is the best video clip downloader for Chrome?
Of the dozens (and dozens) of chrome video downloaders available, there are only three we’d recommend:FBDown Video downloadervGet ExtensionSaveFrom.net
One of these should be part of everyone’s collection of chrome extensions. And yes, there’s a way to lớn tải về videos from YouTube (see option three).
1. FBDown Video downloaderPricing: FreeUsers: 1 millionRating: 3.9/5Supports: Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, DailyMotion
Despite the name, this extension does more than just download video from Facebook. You can tải về đoạn phim from across the website. It’s miễn phí, & the only major platsize it doesn’t seem to lớn work on is YouTube.
Install it from the Chrome Web Store here.
Once it’s installed, just click the tải về arrow in your extension bar on Chrome and you’ll see a menu of available videos on the page you’re viewing. Unusually, FBDown displays both the đoạn Clip filename and a thumbnail image that lets you identify the đoạn Clip you want more readily.
You can also enter a video URL khổng lồ tải về at the FBDown website.
You don’t get a lot of choices with format, và when you choose to tải về a video clip you’re taken (in a new tab) lớn a download page—the extension is a portal lớn the website functionality. FBDown has said the company’s servers don’t keep tải về histories of their users or traông xã their behavior.
That said, FBDown is easy lớn use, practical, well-reviewed, doesn’t ask for any weird permissions or behave oddly, và doesn’t seem lớn interfere with or slow down browsing.
2. vGet ExtensionPricing: FreeUsers: 390,000Rating: 3.8/5Supports: Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, DailyMotion
vGet also works on everything except YouTube, & has the added advantage that it can be used khổng lồ cast Clip to lớn DLNA-enabled TVs.
You also get more control over the file type và format when you download. Although you don’t get the handy thumbnails that FBDown uses khổng lồ help you find your video clip on the page, you bởi vì get something arguably better: scroll down the danh sách of available videos that comes up when you cliông chồng the extension icon, & as you mouse over each one, the video on the page is highlighted và marked with the download inhỏ.
Install the extension from the Chrome Web Store here.
How khổng lồ download videos from YouTube
Let’s take a quiông xã detour. By now you’ve sầu probably guessed that it’s tough khổng lồ tải về videos from YouTube. The streaming giant’s parent company also owns Chrome & has a vested interest in keeping users on YouTube, so extensions aren’t allowed to offer YouTube download functionality. That means you’re not going khổng lồ find a good video clip downloader in the Chrome Web Store.
So what are your options?
YouTube Premium, formerly YouTube Red, offers offline playbaông chồng as part of the $12/month subscription package. This functionality is also available in some countries with a standard YouTube membership. Here’s the list, characterized by inaccessibility or typically poor connectivity.
Depending on what you want lớn tải về videos for, YouTube Premium might be just the answer you’re looking for. It gives you complete access lớn YouTube Originals, YouTube Music, YouTube Kids, and ad-không tính tiền YouTube access.
But YouTube’s offline playbaông xã doesn’t solve sầu all the problems that might have sầu caused you khổng lồ need a downloader in the first place. For instance, you can (obviously) only use it on YouTube. And it’s only usable on mobile devices since you need to have the app. If you want to compile video clip playlists from multiple sources, or cut and remake your own videos, you’ll need another solution.
One way to get more options và control is by using a browser-based downloader like Freemake.
Honorable mention: FreemakePricing: FreeUsers: 83 millionSupports: Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, DailyMotion
Freemake is miễn phí và web-based. To use it, just open it in a browser tab. Here’s the link.
We tested it by downloading a đoạn Clip of my co-founder, Hiten Shah, speaking at Startup Grind. We figured they wouldn’t mind.
All you have to vị is drop the Clip URL into lớn the bar on the trang web & click Download. From there, it takes a few seconds to convert the Clip and a few more to download it as an MP4. You can change the format, with the most common options available on the homescreen:
Dig into lớn the site a little more và you’ll find you can download YouTube & other videos in other formats lượt thích WebM or FLV, as well as rip web liên kết as AVIs to multiple devices including phones, Kindle Fire, and more.
And Freemake makes a big giảm giá of assuring users that original unique is preserved. In the đoạn phim we downloaded and then played in Quicktime, unique certainly looked equal to the YouTube version.
However, that’s not as convenient as being able to download YouTube videos with a single click, which for many use cases is ikhuyễn mãi giảm giá. For that, you’re going khổng lồ need our third & final pichồng of Chrome đoạn Clip downloaders, SaveFrom.
3. SaveFrom.netPricing: FreeRating: 4.4/5Supports: Vimeo (via web), YouTube (direct), Facebook (via web), Twitter (see special instructions below), DailyMotion (via web)
SaveFrom is built for YouTube. The extension is a little complex khổng lồ install, but once it is installed, it works quickly và easily. You can tải về YouTube videos with a single click from the video clip itself, from history, or from browsing.
You won’t find SaveFrom itself on the Chrome Web Store. It works by downloading a separate Chrome extension that enables this one. It’s also web-based. The extension doesn’t work with Clip sources other than YouTube, but the trang web does, so bookmark that and you can tải về đoạn Clip from everywhere.
Start at the trang web. Here, you can drop the URL of any đoạn phim you want lớn tải về inkhổng lồ the tải về box. Twitter videos require special instructions.
Or to lớn install the extension:
Once you’re mix up, you can just click on YouTube videos khổng lồ download them.
Since other videos need to be downloaded from the SaveFrom website, this tool is less versatile than the other solutions we’ve talked about—with the major exception that it works on YouTube. It probably makes sense to have sầu both SaveFrom và vGet or FBDown at the same time. They don’t seem khổng lồ interfere with each other & the combination would give you broader access.
This extension has had malware & other security issues in the past, but these now appear khổng lồ have sầu been resolved; when we tested it, we didn’t see any strange adverts or security alerts from Chrome.
Why use a đoạn Clip downloader anyway?
There are several legal reasons to lớn use a Clip downloader for work, education, or leisure:
1. View videos offline
You might just want to lớn view videos offline. Instructional videos or communication from co-workers in đoạn phim form can be easier lớn use & more intuitive than text. But it’s inconvenient to lớn rely on an internet connection for content you might need to access while flying, on your commute, or in other circumstances where connectivity is spotty. Downloading videos can make them more accessible.
2. Let others view videos offline
Sometimes you might need lớn tóm tắt đoạn Clip with contractors or partners. But not everyone is comfortable passing link around, & some organizations might have objections lớn allowing link in emails or other communications. In some cases, contractors will be in places or situations where internet connectivity is spotty. It’s helpful to be able to download your own videos to lớn mô tả directly without having a centralized video clip repository.
3. For education or training
In schools, colleges, and training sessions, it’s comtháng khổng lồ want only part of a Clip. Whether that’s the specific ten seconds that really clarify what you’re talking about, or whether you want to lớn stitch together parts of several videos, it’s much easier lớn download them & then use a đoạn Clip editing tool to shape, splice, & trlặng the video the way you want.
4. Managing your videos
Say you want to save a đoạn phim like this, from DisrupTV on Vimeo, and our Startup Grind favorite from earlier on YouTube. You have three options.
Create a playcác mục in each service, add to the playlist, then sign in khổng lồ both services in separate tabs when you want khổng lồ watch both videos. Or you can copy the URLs, dump them in a Doc, and open the videos from there—clumsy & old-school as that is, it’s not the worst. Or, of course, you can tải về the videos themselves & put them in a folder on your device.
5. Make sure you can find them
Videos get moved or taken down. If you have sầu a đoạn Clip that’s your go-to lớn resource, you want khổng lồ make sure you don’t thua trận it when someone restructures their website or closes their YouTube account. Download the đoạn phim & it’s yours forever.
