While downloading videos from the web is sometimes a chore, Free Video Downloader lets you easily download and save copies of videos that use a wide range of formats.

Have you ever come across a video that made you laugh for hours? The next time you do a search for that same recording, you may have a hard time finding a copy anywhere. YouTube and other sites will remove videos that violate their terms of service and recordings that contain plagiarism or copyright infringement. Furthermore, the person responsible for a certain video might delete his or her account or erase the video for any number of reasons. With a copy of this program on your computer, you can now save all of the videos that you enjoy on your hard drive and watch them again later.

Free Video Downloader comes with an incredibly easy-to-use interface. You can enter some identifying information about a video in the search box and look for it that way. If you have the website address of the video, you can enter this URL in the larger box. Clicking the big download button will instantly create a copy of that video and save it on your own computer.

Other buttons let you do a few different things. You may click the "tell a friend" button to send someone an email message with the video attached, or you can select the "PC backup" button to save a backup version of the video on your hard drive. This program works with videos that you watch on YouTube and recordings from other sites like Google and Facebook too. When you use the search feature, the program will search popular video download sites to find the content that you want.

Unlike other free programs that limit how many videos you can download in a day, this program lets you acquire all of the videos you want every day. Even if you have a queue with dozens of videos in it, the program shouldn't slow down your computer either. It also has different language settings available for those who do not speak English.

Free Video Downloader is perfect for people with limitations on how much bandwidth they can use. If your internet provider limits the amount of content you can watch every month, you may download your favorite video clips and watch those recordings as many times as you want without going over your limit and without facing additional charges at the end of the month.
