Free Online Video Downloader
Download Videos Online for Free
Once I got into Internet Marketing seriously, I found that I needed to download videos from other people’s sites. And that’s when I found this awesome free online video downloader called Download Helper (specifically DownloadHelper 4.9.12). It’s an extension for the Firefox browser so if you don’t already use Firefox – and even if you don’t want to use Firefox as your main browser – you’ll need to install it to use this extension / add-on.
I use this free online video downloader mostly for products that I purchase online that have streaming video of the product I just purchased but no option to download the video. In these cases, I like to download the video using Download Helper: the free online video downloader to download the video to my desktop where I can view it on my mobile or straight from my computer.
I’ve also noticed that some people are using this free online video downloader to remove logos that are embedded at the end of videos produced by companies like Animoto.com. I haven’t read through all of Animoto’s Terms of Service but I’m pretty sure that if you plan on distributing the video, removing the Animoto logo is likely against their TOS. Please do your own due diligence before using the method outlined in the video below.
Whether you want to download videos from Youtube, Flickr, Vimeo, Metacafe or any of the other online video platforms, this free online video downloader works like a charm.
Remember that when you’re using the free version of Animoto, they only give you the option of uploading it to either Youtube or Smugmug. By using this free online video downloader, you can now download and share your newly created videos on ALL the other video sharing platforms. This will get your videos even more traction and views. To do this, use the free online video downloader as instructed in the video above. Then create an account with all the other big video sharing sites and upload your video there as well.
Alternatives to Youtube include:
The last one, Instructables I really like. It’s a kind of DIY tutorial site. I tried it for my bartending videos and a couple of my videos are closing in on 10,000 video views after just over a year – not bad for a “secondary” video sharing site!
Ok back to the free online video downloader. Once you’ve installed the add-on / extension, you’ll see it light up when there is video (which sometimes needs to be playing for DownloadHelper to activate) on the web page you’re visiting. From that point, you can simply click the icon to download the video to your desktop.
