Youtube Download

Da dieser Artikel täglich mehrfach via Google aufgerufen wird, hier die ultimative Video-Download-Liste:

Vixy

  • Input: YouTube, FLV URL.
  • Output: AVI (DivX); MOV (MAC); MP4 (PSP, iPod); 3GP (phone devices); MP3 (audio).
  • Review: Very straigthforward. Paste the video’s url, choose the output format, wait a little bit and it will display you the result as a link to download.

FLVIX

  • Input: YouTube, Google Video, FLV URL.
  • Output: AVI (DivX); MOV (MAC); MP4 (PSP, iPod); 3GP (phone devices); MP3 (audio).
  • Review: Seems to be a Vixy clone, with support of Google Video.

Zamzar

  • Input: All major video sites (YouTube, Google Video, Metacafe, Dailymotion…). Also allow uploading your own files as source input.
  • Output: Many lossy and lossless video/audio formats.
  • Review: The mother of all online converter services (and not only for video, but also image and document formats). Supports batch (multiple files) conversion also. One drawback: you have to give e-mail address to receive the download links of the results.

Movavi

  • Input: All major video sites (YouTube, Google Video, Metacafe, Dailymotion…). Also user uploaded files.
  • Output: AVI (Xvid); MPEG2; MPEG4 (iPod, PSP); 3GP, 3GP2 (phone devices); FLV (Flash Video).
  • Review: Something in middle between the Zamzar and Vixy (FLVIX) services. Supports more online video platforms than Vixy, but not like Zamzar, it is specialized on video only as conversion formats. Requires e-mail address, and those limits (10 min videos, max 5 files batch conversion and total of 100 MB as input files) might be counted as minuses. One interesting extra feature - Movavi allows integration to many external things, like Facebook application, embedded widget to other websites or web browsers.
  • Ich hatte schon öfter Anfragen, wie man Youtube Videos runterladen kann. Das geht mit dem einen oder anderen Tool ganz bequem, am Ende hat man aber eine eher untaugliche FLV-Datei.

    Der FLV-Online-Converter nimmt einem jedenfalls alle Arbeit ab und liefert die Videos direkt als AVI, MOV, MP4, 3GP oder MP3.
