VDownloader - search, download and convert videos

Posted by ClifNotes, Nov 2008, permalink Download Manager


VDownloader is a small application that tries to be a video addict's favorite companion. The simple interface allows you to search several video sites, view the videos, the download and convert them to your favorite video format.


I downloaded and installed it with no problems. I immediately was able to use it to download a video by inserting a YouTube link. It seemed to take a few minutes to download the file, and I assume that it can only download videos as fast as the video host will allow you to. After it downloads, it takes a few seconds more to convert the file to the format you've chosen in the drop down list on the right.


There are several file formats to choose when you wish to convert the video file.


AVI 320x240

AVI 640x480

iPhone - iPod compatible

PSP compatible

Nokia N800/N810


MP3 (Audio Only)

3GP (Mobile)

VCD (Pal)






Original File (No Conversion)


Generally, the application seems to work fine. Sometimes I had it freeze on me while I was trying to view a video. I found that it's best to stop a search that's in progress before trying to view or download a video. Since this application is fairly new, you may notice other bugs.

Quote from the website

Search for videos in sites like YouTube, DailyMotion, Yahoo, Megaupload or Google at the same time. You can watch, download, or save videos with just one click. Its embedded meta search engine makes VDownloader different from other download managers. It searches at the same time in the most popular video sites so you will easily find the video you were looking for. Another strong point is the amount of different output formats: It can download and save videos in: AVI, MPG, MP4, iPhone - iPod, PSP, 3GP for mobile phones, DVD - VCD, MP3 (extracting audio from videos). VDownloader is also a powerful video converter with multilingual support (English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Italian.
