After Clipconverter.cc is no longer working and YouTube-MP3.org has been sued by the famous labels like Sony, you are desperately to find a very best video download site to continue ripping videos from Vimeo, Facebook or Dailymotion. But you may be encountered some problems while doing the online video downloader hunting, like this site doesn't support YouTube or you have to install a plug-in to be able to download videos with that site which is very annoying since you've made your mind to skip installing a standalone online video downloader software kinda way and really wanted to keep things simple.
Well, you have come to the right place. After tested a few dozens of online video download sites, here is a thorough review of the top 10 video download sites, hope you will find your favorite one.
[Warning] YouTube music & copyright-protected contents are not supported for download.
5KPlayer is one of the best online video downloader software that works both on Mac and Windows. Not only supports downloading MP4 videos from 300+ online video sites but also can it download 1080P, 4K, 5K, and even 8K videos and convert video to MP3 at once.
Top 1: savefrom.net
Savefrom.net is a very straightforward video download site, and the most convenient way to download videos with this site tool is just simply add "ss" in front of "youtube.com" in the video url. i.e. change www.youtube.com/xxx to www.ssyoutube.com/xxx and then hit Enter, you will come to the download page. And it is probably the most popular way or the easiest way to download a video, but the shortcoming of this video download site is that it doesn't support download full HD video and it is not always working.
Top 2 savemedia.com
Seems like savemedia.com has already merged with keep-tube. You don't need to copy and paste URL to download videos with this video download sites either, simply replace the url youtube.com/xxx with savemedia.com/xxx and you will be redirected to the video download page of savemedia.com. It also has the desktop downloader called Vdownloader. Sometimes when the site tool doesn't work, you can try Vdownloader to download videos.
Top 3 savevideo.me
It does't say on this video download site that it supports to download videos, and if you try to copy and paste the url of a video on this site, it is also unable to analyze the URL. However, there is a simple workaround way, if you add the word "magic" between "you" and "tube" like www.youmagictube.com/xxx, you will be able to jump to the downloading page! Strange isn't it. And this video download site also support to download MP3 audio directly and supports other video sites such as Dailymotion, Vine, etc. But be aware of the ads in case you accidently click it.
Top 4 Deturl
This video download site is a bit different from others, it adapt the way of recording video and audio to download MP4 and MP3. If you want to use this site to download online videos, please be patient, because there is a "endless" redirect, and finally you will be able to download the MP4 or MP3 file only. There is also a simple way which is add "pwn" in front of the video URL, i.e. www.pwnyoutube.com/xxx, and then you will go to the download page directly.
As a matter of fact, relying on a website to download online videos is not a long plan. Despite the ads or virus the sites may contain, lesson has been told that online video download sites are not stable, today it may be available like clipconverter.cc, and tomorrow it may be sued like YouTube-mp3.org, or it just occasionally not working like Keepvid.com. The best way to avoid someday you will try to find another alternative site to download online videos, you can just stick to 5KPlayer – your default online video downloader software.
Top 5: videograbber.net
Powered by Apowersoft, videograbber.net is another online video download site. It's just that you need to download a launcher before you can really download the video.
Top 6: youtubemoncky.com
Not so many people knows about this video download site, but it is also super easy and convenient, just simply add "monkey" behind "Youtube" in the URL like www.youtubemoncky.com/xxx
Top 7: Zamzar
I suppose this video download site has been bullied by Google. It does't download videos anymore, but you still can use it to download Vevo videos, and it is an online video converter as well.
Top 8: Catchvideo.net
Finally a video download site that supports download 4K videos. But you have to install the "catch video helper" extension to your Chrome or Firefox browser. It is also a pupolar site to download videos.
Top 9: videograbby
I personally like this video download site, because there is no tedious redirection process and other garbages, just select the video file or format you want and it will download to your computer very fast.
Top 10: vidtomp3
You need to think twice to use this video download site to download online videos, because you will spend a lot of time going through the redirections, but you will in the end download the MP3 or video you want.
