Download Videos from Internet Sites for Free

There are times when we want to watch online videos when we are not connected to internet. Downloading the videos for offline viewing can help in such cases.


If you are looking to download videos from internet sites such as Youtube, MetaCafe, DailyMotion etc, you can use one of the methods below to download videos for offline viewing.

Using Real Player's "Download This Video" feature

Simply install real player to your PC, and real player will display “Download this Video” button every time you play a video on internet site.  Clicking the button will download the video in real player library. You can watch the video any time later from library.

Sometimes “Download this Video” button does not appear. In this case, you can try to copy the link of video, open the real player and play the video in the player by pasting the video link. The button should  appear now.

 Using Freemake Video Downloader


Freemake Video Downloaer is another tool you can use. The tool is amazing. Once you have installed this on the PC, follow the steps below.

  1. Copy the URL of the video you want to download.

  2. Open Freemake Video Downloader software.

  3. Click on "Paster URL" button.

  4. A pop-up window will open with options of video formats and size of the download. Higher the size, better the quality will be. But the download time will also be higher. Choose the size of the download.

  5. Video will download in your PC.

I have slightly higher preference for Real Player, mostly because of brand value of Real Player is higher. But I have seen sometimes real player download does not work. Freemake Video Downloader is simple to use, and always work flawlessly for all the websites. You can choose file format, size and quality of the downloaded video. So, you can choose the quality and download size based on your need.
