[How-to] Download any video from your favorite video website.

Yesterday someone asked me the process of downloading Videos from Youtube and i was kind of surprised to hear that question. Its surprising to know that many people still are unaware that they can download their favorite videos from video sharing websites like Youtube, Google Videos, MetaCafe, Blip.tv, Dailymotion, Spike etc.

This post describes the process of downloading the videos from your Favorite video sharing websites. It also describes the process of converting the downloaded .flv files to your favorite format.

Lets start with the download process first. In order to download a particular video from your favorite video sharing website, you should have the URL of the video. For eg, if you wish to download the video from the URL http://www.metacafe.com/watch/663030/insane_747_400_landing/

Follow the steps below:

1.) Point your browser to the URL http://www.keepvid.com

2.) On the homepage of Keepvid website, enter the URL of the video ( in our case, http://www.metacafe.com/watch/663030/insane_747_400_landing/ ) in the input box provided. If you are not sure of the videoservice, select Any Site from the combo.

3.) Press the button names “Download”.

4.) A download link is presented. The file downloaded is in the .flv format. However, if you happen to be downloading video from Youtube, you could even get .mp4 version of your video file.

5.) Rename the downloaded file to something-meaningful.flv

6.) Download a FLV player to view the recently downloaded file. You can get one from here.

However, the video file you just downloaded is in .flv format , in order to convert it to some other format, like .avi, .wmv, .3gp, .mp4 etc, download AVS Video Converter, a free tool which allows you to convert all types of video files from one format to another, rip and burn video DVDs and make basic edits to video.

AVS Video Converter can convert videos to multiple formats

Once you have downloaded AVS Video Converter, follow the steps below

1.) Select your input file path.

2.) Select the conversion parameters for the desired format of video.

3.) Set a video output file path.

4.) Press Convert Now.

Go on and download your favorite videos.
