Why Do You Need to Download Online Videos
Watching a video online is a common form of personal entertainment for most of us. We always watch videos on video sites like YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion or social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. At one time or another, we may want to download the video we like for offline watching, for video editing, or just for collection.
However, most of the websites don't allow us to save the videos directly. Commonly, you need to pay for the membership to get permission to save the videos to local or there is no download button available. That's why you need a professional URL video downloader to download any video from any site using URL. There are mainly two kinds of tools you can use: URL video downloader online or video downloader app.
Why It Is Not Recommended to 'Download Any Video from Any Site Using URL Online'
Most of us prefer an online video downloader to a video download app because we think it is more convenient. No app needed, we can download any video from any website using the URL online via a browser like Chrome and Firefox. But an online video downloader is not what we expect it to be. Actually, there are some unignorable problems with free video downloaders online.
Here are some of the ISSUES I encountered when I tried to save videos from YouTube with online video downloaders:
- After parsing the link, the website said it didn't find the media files.
- After I clicked the "Download" button, I was redirected to another page that required me to download a video downloader app.
- After I pasted the URL and clicked "Download", I was redirected to a shopping website.
- The online video downloader took a long time to analyze the video address and then reported: "Failed to analyze video links!"
Honestly, my experience of using these online services is bad and it's highly likely for you to encounter the same issues. Given that, I'd like to recommend you try the safe and fast video downloader which allows you to download any video from any site using URL without such tricks.
